As a senior Principal Lawyer, and former Managing Director of Ligeti Partners, Andrew prides himself on ensuring Ligeti Partners provide their clients with exceptional service and personalised support whilst solving their insurance and commercial disputes. In addition to helping ensure Ligeti Partners is a socially responsible business, Andrew lives by the values of Collaboration, Integrity, Growth and Excellence.

As part of a motivated national team in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, Andrew has focused on building and maintaining long-term relationships with clients, evidenced by the 40-year-plus association with Suncorp, and lengthy affiliations with other leading Australian Insurers like Auto and General, Youi, Hollard, RAC, NTI and Zurich. Andrew never takes these relationships for granted.

Andrew is a relationship-focused, commercially minded, results-driven insurance lawyer with more than 35 years’ of experience. He has focused principally on residential and consumer claims, motor vehicle claims and claims involving issues of fraud and indemnity. By communicating clearly, whilst building and maintaining partnerships with team members, clients and all stakeholders, Andrew ensures a personalised professional service, based on mutual respect, trust and teamwork. He has worked with numerous claims officers over the years, many of whom remain clients of the firm.

Andrew believes “success doesn’t just find you”. It requires investment in people, loyalty and hard work. Andrew is very passionate about this investment and Ligeti Partners.
