“Helping you know whether it is worth the fight.”
Andrew believes that understanding what’s at stake is the key to resolving any dispute.
For over 25 years, he has assisted Australian and international clients involved in complex commercial disputes – working ‘behind-the-scenes’ with the legal team preparing or reviewing claims and determining case strategy or acting as an independent expert, preparing reports and giving evidence in courts and before tribunals.
In either role, Andrew’s thorough analysis and clear communication helps clients and their opponents come to grips with the critical financial aspects of their disputes. This maximises the likelihood of early and successful resolution, allowing clients to get back to what really matters to them.
Outside the office, Andrew and his family have for decades supported NGOs in countries like Kazakhstan, Cambodia and the Philippines to address grassroots and transnational poverty and injustice.

A recent judgment in the NSW Supreme Court considered the admissibility of new opinions arising out of joint expert conferences. In this article, Andrew Ross examines the judgment and its potential broader implications for expert opinions expressed in joint reports and concurrent evidence.
