National law firm Weightmans has appointed Andrew Brammer as Partner and Regulatory Lead in the Midlands. Andrew is a specialist regulatory lawyer and joins the firm from Cartwright King, where he was Head of Regulatory Business Defence.
Andrew’s practice focuses on protecting businesses and key decision makers during regulatory criminal investigations and prosecutions specialising in health and safety law. From the police station to the Boardroom, Andrew has represented national and international organisations across multiple sectors in many reputation-sensitive cases. Throughout his career he has defended hundreds of clients against regulatory bodies such as the Health and Safety Executive, Environment Agency and Local Authority Trading Standards.
Andrew’s expertise in contentious health and safety and environmental law has been recognised by legal directories for over a decade - he is cited as being a "Leading Individual" by the Legal 500 for his health and safety work, as well as "highly experienced and impressively robust". He is also recognised for his "tactical astuteness" and "excellent attention to detail".
“I am delighted to join Weightmans – the firm’s stellar reputation for regulatory advice and its deep understanding of clients needs is unrivalled and I look forward to working with the national team to further strengthen our offering in the Midlands and beyond.”
Partner and Head of Regulatory Dewi Ap-Thomas said:
“Regulation has placed increasing responsibilities on all organisations from all sectors in recent years, and the consequences of non-compliance with these requirements have never been higher. Demand for the firm’s services in this area continues to grow, so we are thrilled to welcome Andrew to lead our Midlands offering – his specialist knowledge and experience will add valuable further strength to our existing national team.”
