Andrew Higgs Andrew Higgs
Consultant Solicitor

Andrew is an experienced commercial litigator, specialising in dispute resolution, arbitration, mediation, insurance and legal risk management; both in the City of London (Commercial & Admiralty Courts), and also internationally.

Andrew joined Setfords in March 2017, having practiced with a leading City of London law firm for more than 30 years, and as a partner for more than 20 years. More recently, he worked as the Liaison Officer and legal risk management consultant for the International Union of Marine Insurance ("IUMI"), at the International Maritime Organisation ("IMO"), for five years (2008-2013), one of the original Non-Government Organisations invited to join the only UN Agency in the British Isles, when it was first formed in Westminster, in 1948.

Andrew has also worked as an After The Event insurance underwriter, and as a commercial litigation funding underwriter, having an interest in "Access to Justice" for meritorious claims being made by impecunious claimants.

Andrew prides himself not only on his early neutral evaluation skills, but also his teamwork with barristers, colleagues, witnesses (both factual and expert), having a sound commercial approach to the strategies necessarily required for a successful outcome, wherever achievable, within an appropriate timescale, and based on an agreed funding strategy.
