Andy has been a vital part of the extended Fuel Ventures team over the last few years. Since launching in 2016, we've quickly become one of the most active seed funds in the UK, and that comes with its own challenges around producing suitable legal documentation quickly. On several occasions, we've relied on Andy to support us in writing multi-million pound tickets into some of the UK's fastest growing businesses such as: Feast It, Wollitt, Market Materials, Cutbox and Peckwater Brands. The work that Andy has put into his relationship with us at Fuel has been vital for the progression of our business.

Andy is a tremendous asset to Fieldfisher. He was instrumental to Six To Start’s exit to Australian based OliveX in 2021. Andy was always available for support and held everything together. We could not have done it without him. The deal had a critical timescale to close before the chancellor stood up to deliver his budget in March. It was a complex international deal and Andy made sure we met the deadline. He definitely went above and beyond the call of duty. I could not recommend him more highly and would actively look to work with him in the future.

Andy is a diligent lawyer with a great attention to detail, and played a key role in the acquisition of Honest Health. Andy gave us excellent legal counsel, based on his broad experience executing venture capital and M&A transactions. Above all, Andy is approachable, friendly, and a great person to have on the team. Andy and the wider Fieldfisher team have been instrumental to the success of Honest Health over the years.  From advising us before our seed round, to arranging our first capital raise, and supporting us throughout our acquisition, we have always felt that we are no more than one email or phone call away from outstanding legal counsel.
