Health & Safety Law
Andrew Long is one of the North West’s most experienced and respected criminal barristers. His practice is equally divided between Defence and Prosecution work. When prosecuting he is a senior grade 4 counsel and is on the rape panel.
Andrew has immense experience in all forms of criminal work ranging from gang related drugs and violence to complex white collar fraud. He regularly appears as a leading junior and is willing to take on work which traditionally would have been the preserve of Queen’s Counsel. He is an intelligent and highly articulate advocate, and has the ability and experience to take on highly complex cases at very short notice.
Andrew regularly appears in serious sex cases and has an outstanding track record for winning the cases in which he is instructed, be it on behalf of the Crown or Defendant.
For 20 years Andrew has had a particular interest in Health and Safety cases, and has appeared in many of the high profile cases which have taken place in the North West during that time, including R v Associated Octel, and R v British Gas PLC.
More recently he has been instructed, mainly by Defence insurers, in cases involving catastrophic injury or death. He is frequently asked to attend inquests in cases involving deaths in the workplace. He appeared successfully on behalf of the Defendants in R v Deeside Metals & Ors, a case of manslaughter in which the DPP had taken a particular interest.
Andrew was recently appointed to the Regulatory Panel at Grade A, and is available to prosecute on behalf of the HSE and local authorities, together with the Environment Agency.Book BarristerBack to top
