Andrew Wakeman

Head of Criminal Services

Andrew is a Director and works in our Criminal department, based at the Stourbridge office.

His career has seen Andrew travel the Midlands - from Talbots in the 'west' to Tallents Godfrey of Nottingham in the 'east' to Glaisyers in the 'central' region, a Birmingham-based firm. Andrew attended King Edwards Grammar School in Aston, hence his devotion to the 'claret-and-blues' of Aston Villa. Clearly a good education wasted! He obtained his law degree from Nottingham University before finishing his studies at the College of Law in York.

Any spare time involves armchair sport although he is being encouraged to develop an interest in gardening and veg plots! Given the choice, Andrew enjoys films and travel and has previously completed the Talbots Wolverhampton to Aberdovey charity bike ride!

Andrew once had lunch at the House of Lords and sat next to Sebastian Coe. In his memoirs, Lord Coe fondly recalls the day he had lunch sat next to Andrew Wakeman.
