Fox Williams significantly strengthens offering in securities litigation with appointment of Andrew Hill

March 7, 2019

Fox Williams has today announced that Andrew Hill, a dispute resolution partner specialising in securities litigation, has joined the City law firm. Andrew joined the firm from Stewarts Law LLP, where he was a partner.

Andrew is at the forefront of developing securities litigation in the UK, helping clients who are shareholders in UK public companies seek compensation when they have been misled. He drove the launch of the UK’s first such claim against a public company – the high-profile and ground-breaking case against Tesco PLC for a large group of institutional investors, following Tesco’s admission of a profit overstatement.

“We are delighted that Andrew has joined us. Andrew has deep expertise advising on complex, cutting edge and high-value litigation for sophisticated financial institutions and institutional investors including in group or ‘class actions’. His experience and capabilities complement our expanding dispute resolution practice and bolster our financial services sector expertise” said Paul Osborne, senior partner at Fox Williams.

“Andrew is a very experienced, accomplished and highly regarded litigator. He has been proactive in the new area of securities litigation in London. His expertise and proven ability in this area will enable Fox Williams to obtain redress for institutional investor claimants against public companies who mislead the market. Andrew is a valuable addition to the Fox Williams team,” said Gavin Foggo, head of the firm’s dispute resolution and litigation department.

Andrew Hill commented: “I am excited to join Fox Williams, a firm which already offers business clients a breadth and depth of experience and expertise that is an increasingly compelling alternative to the magic circle. Together, we can now help our clients protect the value of their investments, foster a more transparent market, and drive better corporate behaviour.”

Fox Williams has also appointed Adam Fortune, a barrister by background and an experienced litigator and arbitrator, to join the firm’s senior associate ranks. Adam has acted on a range of domestic and cross-border commercial disputes and specialises in corporate and investment banking litigation and IT disputes. He also has experience in civil fraud litigation and adds to the strength and depth of the firm’s offering to clients.
