Early next year (2022) Debenhams Ottaway will welcome dispute resolution partner Andrew Carter. Already one of the largest dispute resolution and litigation teams in the region, Andrew will join partners Juliet Schalker and Alexander Neale focusing on their local and London based clients. With his City background and local experience, Andrew reinforces the team’s reputation for City expertise without the price tag.

Andrew will be joining a strong team of senior and junior litigators with an impressive reputation and dedication to client service. His background and focus complement Debenhams Ottaway’s existing offering to its client base of national corporations, owner managed businesses and high net worth individuals.

Andrew is an experienced and highly sought-after litigator who previously worked in the City but has spent the last 13 years building an impressive client base in London and Hertfordshire. He advises businesses on a range of complex commercial issues, with particular expertise in director and shareholder disputes, complex breach of contract, professional negligence and privacy law. The quality of work and client base is a great fit with Debenhams Ottaway and his joining the team will be pivotal to their future vision.

Juliet Schalker, who leads Debenhams Ottaway’s litigation team comments “Debenhams Ottaway has a very clear vision and ambitious growth plans and having the right people is key to achieving this. Our people and clients are at the heart of Debenhams Ottaway’s success and Andrew joining the team reflects our commitment to building a team of talented lawyers to help our commercial clients who are in dispute. We look forward to welcoming Andrew to the team next year and working with him to get to where we want the team, and the firm, to be.”
