Andrew Lindsay is a director and member of Lupton Fawcett Lee & Priestley.
Andrew heads the Corporate Finance Department. He is a well known legal adviser to businesses and companies in the York and North Yorkshire region, where he previously practised as a corporate lawyer for 20 years. He also served as President of the York & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce between 2004 and 2006 and is currently a director of the merged Leeds, York and North Yorkshire Chamber.
He is often quoted in the business pages of the Business Desk, the Yorkshire Post and the York Press, and regularly leads and presents seminars to clients and other members of the business community on a variety of commercial legal subjects.
There is also an international aspect to Andrew’s legal practice, where he chaired the Mergers & Acquisitions board of Geneva Group International (GGI) between 2005 and 2010. GGI is one of the top 10 global multi-disciplinary networks of lawyers, accountants and management consultants.
Much of his work involves negotiating the acquisition and sale of companies and businesses; advising shareholders and directors; dealing with complex commercial negotiations and handling banking and securities issues.
In what spare time he has, Andrew is a frustrated golfer, a completely useless but extremely keen cricketer, and an occasional, very unsuccessful fly fisherman. He is also an eternally optimistic, but regularly disappointed supporter of Middlesbrough Football Club. His interest in sport has led him to act for a number of football clubs and their shareholders in reorganisations and take-overs across the UK.
He is married with two children who are much better at sport than him, and regularly tell him so.
