Andrew Harrison

Andrew has practiced corporate law for over 20 years, advising on a wide variety of transactions, including management buy-outs and buy-ins, corporate acquisitions and disposals and listed company takeovers. He has advised high net worth individuals, entrepreneurs, finance houses, PLCs and multi-national corporations.

He believes that well-executed deals require careful planning, meticulous organisation and skilful negotiation to get the deal done quickly and with a minimum of fuss.  He likes to get to know his clients and their businesses and believes that understanding their objectives is vital to the success of a venture.  He aims to ensure that those he advises remain clients for a long time.

He was educated at Doncaster Grammar School and Christ Church, Oxford and holds an M.A. and a B.C.L. from the University of Oxford.

He trained at Payne Hicks Beech in London, before working in the buy-out group at Clifford Chance.  He then joined Irwin Mitchell, where he became a partner and head of its largest corporate department.  In 2000 he became a partner at Wragge & Co, where he became leader of one of its major corporate teams. In 2009, Andrew left Wragge & Co to found Tallar, of which he is the owner.

He currently serves as a non-executive director of Victoria Plc, the AIM listed carpet manufacturer, Islandbridge Capital Limited, a regulated investment manager and Chorus Law Group Limited.

He enjoys tennis, skiing and running.  He is interested in film and food.

Technically he’s excellent. You can only make the call about what not to include in deal documentation if you really know your stuff.
