Career

Andrew completed his articles with Rushmere Noach Inc in Port Elizabeth and then, keen to obtain practical software experience, completed a Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer course. He then moved to London and worked as a software developer for several years. His experience included work at a large ISP, a start-up online data storage company, and an online property search website.

On his return to South Africa in 2002, Andrew joined LawSure, a company offering innovative web-based solutions to the legal profession, and at the same time returned to practising the law.

Andrew later set up practice on his own specializing in ICT law, eventually joining Dingley Marshall as a director.
