Our Team

Andrew Ford


Andrew’s wealth of experience in defending against criminal proceedings makes him the ideal candidate to head up Holborn Adams’ criminal team. Conscious that each client has an individual need with much at stake, Andrew has an enviable record of avoiding charges being brought against his clients by virtue of his pre-charge advice and skilful representation.

Working exclusively with those who can privately fund their own representation, Andrew’s clients include professional sportspeople, medical professionals, and those with a high net-worth. Andrew is considered a ‘rising star’ in both criminal and sports law.

Andrew’s skill and forensic approach means many cases are marked as ‘no further action required’. These cases, however, are often complex and require discretion, involving investigations and prosecutions brought by the Serious Fraud Office, National Crime Agency, Crown Prosecution Service and regulators (incorporating professional discipline).

Alongside his work in criminal law, Andrew also represents leading professional sportspeople in cricket and rugby as an agent.

Fun fact: Andrew plays both cricket and rugby to a high standard, which works well with his representation of players in these sports.

Andrew has been described by past clients as “professional” and “knowledgeable” and by colleagues as “loyal” and “honest”.

Andrew is seen as a “go to” lawyer in the country for those subject to investigation for online sexual offences. He has successfully diverted many suspects away from prosecution, in such cases as sexual conversations with minors and image offences. This has prevented media attention, damage to careers and damage to family lives.
