Andy Wintle

Andy’s principal focus is on the lateral Partner market in London law firms. He has been working in this market since 2003 and prior to that was a corporate lawyer (willing, but not especially able), both in private practice and in-house.

Andy acts for both individual Partners and teams, predominantly within the UK mid-market and understands the rhythm, nuance and intricacies of these lateral moves. He works across a range of practice areas and ‘leans’ towards sectors such as technology, financial services, clean energy and the built environment. Recent successful Partner introductions have been in practice areas such as corporate, tax, commercial, renewables, construction and planning.

Junior lawyers who Andy placed in the early part of his career are often now instructing us as Partners or Heads of Department, reflecting the benefit of building and maintaining relationships over the long term and the consistency of our approach. We are proactive and take the long view. We listen more than we talk. Andy has been described as a “straight arrow” and aims to be honest, clear and transparent in any recruitment process, adding value and providing constructive insights.

Andy is committed to equality and diversity in both his professional and personal life, having for many years been the trustee of a charity which promotes inclusion and opportunity for young people with disabilities.

Property Partner

It was a pleasure working with Andrew Wintle. He guided me through the process of securing partnership at an outstanding firm. Andy matched me perfectly with the firm and was always on hand for a chat, pre interview. We also met a number of times as (quite rightly) he needed to know me, the candidate, in order to promote me. I couldn't recommend Andy highly enough to both firms and individuals alike.
