Andrew specialises in litigation and advisory work relating to trusts, estates and capital taxation. He regularly advises and appears for trustees and / or beneficiaries in breach of trust claims which involve associated revenue and private international law questions. Chambers & Partners 2010 noted that in the field of traditional chancery, Andrew’s practice “continues to go from strength to strength, with sources recommending his expertise in contentious trust and estate litigation in particular”.

Commentators viewed him as "a highly effective advocate, who plays the right points very well”. Chambers & Partners 2011 notes that Andrew applies his "terrific powers of analysis" when dealing with claims over litigious trust and estates issues and that he has particular expertise in the removal of trustees and executors from their roles. His "pragmatic application of the law to the ins and outs of each case" is widely regarded.
He has been instructed in numerous high profile trust and estate disputes in recent years, including Birley v Birley, Jones v Firkin-Flood, Re Circle Trust, Walters v Smee, Prince Jeffri v BIA, Walker v Walker, Sharp v Adam and Healey v Brown.
