Andrew Lawton Smith, Partner, Corporate | Fieldfisher
Skip to main content

I specialise in M&A, joint ventures and equity fundraisings.  For entrepreneurial businesses, I often act as if I were the business's General Counsel, helping them source answers to all their legal issues and questions.

I work across all sectors, but with a focus on technology, healthcare, manufacturing and leisure sectors.  My principal objective is to deliver reliable, innovative and cost effective solutions for the enterprise and its owners.

What others say…

I have worked closely with Andrew [since 2001], and during that time he has provided expert advice and guidance on a huge variety of complex situations. Armed with a razor sharp intellect and bags of creativity, Andrew has a fantastic ability to rapidly assimilate and analyse information, and apply practical solutions. I have also found his network to be excellent and he is always open to using that to promote relationships and create business development opportunities for all. On top of all, Andrew is also a thoroughly nice guy to work with.



Andy has a long established and broad experience of working with, advising and assisting major corporates and substantial owner managed businesses. He demonstrates strong commercial acumen, understanding client's business needs and has the people and leadership skills to drive through projects to a swift and successful conclusion on time and in budget. He also possesses great problem solving skills and, in my experience, approaches solutions indirectly and creatively.
