Andrew Williamson

Experience

  • I am a partner in the catastrophic injury team, having joined the firm in 2010.
  • I defend claims involving motor, employers’ liability and public liability for a number of leading insurers. 
  • I regularly advise on insurance disputes in connection with those claims. The majority of my cases involve brain and/or spinal injuries which tend to be valued in excess of £1million. My caseload currently includes numerous cases involving limb amputation, severe brain injury, PVS/minimal awareness, paraplegia and tetraplegia, a number of which are pleaded in excess of £10million.
  • I am an active member of BLM’s finance and socio-economic subject matter group. As part of this role I have produced publications in connection with the discount rate and claims involving foreign nationals.  
  • I also regularly provide training both in-house and to clients on topics including liability and aspects of quantum calculation.
  • I have also presented to external groups including the Brain Injury Group where I provided the defendant’s perspective on the impact of the Government’s change to the discount rate.
