Andrew Sears – Director / Solicitor -
Andrew qualified as a solicitor in 1980 and is a Director of the firm.
Andrew specialises in general litigation and financial mis-selling.
Andrew first set his sights on a legal career at the tender age of 13 when he was inspired by the work and lifestyle of a school friend′s elder brother. Even at that early age Andrew set his sights on running his own Practice and even drew up a floor plan of his ideal law office. The school holidays always included a visit, or two, to the local Law Courts to lap up the excitement of a wide range of cases from the public gallery.
This dream was to become a reality when after training in the West End of London with the rising stars of an entertainment law firm, Andrew moved to Portsmouth to pursue his Law career.
By 1983 Andrew became a partner, a month short of his 28th birthday. Over the following 31 years Andrew has combined his business and legal ambitions to see the successor practice, Andrew & Andrew – which was formed in 2001, thrive.
Andrew has many legal strings to his bow but is never happier than when dealing with Dispute Resolution, formerly named Litigation Cases. Currently Andrew has taken a keen interest in the Mortgage Mis-Selling department, and mentors and assists with driving forward these claims.
Away from the office Andrew is busy enjoying life with his wife, sharing interests away from home by way of cycling, swimming and boating. At home they enjoy tackling their garden and cooking, not only for themselves but also to host regular visits from their 2 grown up sons who are forging teaching careers for themselves in London.
