About Andrew

Andrew is the Managing Principal and Relationship Partner with a number of our major clients.

Andrew qualified in South Africa. He served articles and was a partner at a medium sized, well established South African practice. On immigrating to Australia in January 1997, he joined Ligeti Partners.

Andrew has more than 25 years’ experience and has always specialised in insurance litigation, acting for general and liability insurers. He has dealt with thousands of claims either personally, or in his capacity as supervising team leader. Andrew is often asked to provide strategic advice to our clients in relation to practices which have the potential to adversely impact on their businesses.

Andrew regularly provides training seminars to staff members of our insurer clients, including home and motor teams, recovery and settlement teams, assessors, fraud and investigation teams.

Andrew has formed close long-term relationships with all his clients. This is a result of his down to earth nature, dependability, pragmatism, commercial attitude and passion for his clients.
