We engaged Andrew when our client, Dual Australia Pty Ltd, had been defrauded over $16M. Andrew gave timely and expert advice leading to the commencement of proceedings and a successful application where he appeared in the Supreme Court of Victoria and obtained asset Freezing orders and Search orders. Andrew was also intimately involved in negotiations leading to a quick resolution of the litigation. Our client was most pleased with the outcome and we wouldn’t hesitate to brief Andrew again.
Simon Crawford, Partner - HWL Ebsworth Lawyers
Andrew and I have successfully worked together on several complex fraud matters over the years and I would not hesitate to continue to do so in the future.
David Galbally, AM QC Partner – Madgwicks Lawyers
We had a major fraud in our business commited by the company CFO. We didn’t expect to get our money back, but thanks to Andrew most was retrieved. We would have been in strife otherwise. Andrew was fantastic and once we achieved civil recovery, Andrew liaised with the police detectives resulting in the fraudster being jailed.
