Andrew Eagle is Josiah Hincks’ Senior Partner having joined the firm in 1996. Andrew specialises in Company and Commercial Matters, including those with Employment Law aspects. He typically acts for businesses but can also give advice to employees as required.

Andrew is regularly instructed in business sales and purchases and there is often the need to give advice on redundancy schemes or TUPE transfers as a result. He can therefore advise the business about this, or act as an independent advisor to any employees needing a settlement agreement.
