Andrew Thomson BA FCA

Chief Executive Officer


  • Peterborough

Andrew trained as a Chartered Accountant with Price Waterhouse, in the North East of England.  He moved with his work, (both in the UK and Overseas) and progressed to Managing Partner in the Accountancy sector. Moving into the Legal Sector in 1999, Andrew has a successful track record and considerable experience at CEO/Director level.
Improving financial performance and corporate governance have formed key elements of his work, as well as managing change during a busy and challenging time for the Sector.

Projects have included:

  • Design and implementation of Compliance and Risk Monitoring systems;
  • Profit improvement strategies;
  • Corporate Governance reorganisation;
  • Managing Cultural changes;
  • Business relocations; and
  • Mergers and systems/process improvements.

Andrew’s appointment at Hunt & Coombs in 2014 has come at a time when the legal landscape is ever changing, and his involvement as Chief Executive Officer for a number of legal practices means he has the unique skills required to understand the Partnership business model, and the tools to help Partners through many of the recent challenges in the Sector, such as LASPO, the Legal Service Act, Jackson reforms and increasing Compliance requirements.

Here is Andrew talking about our Vision Statement at Hunt & Coombs, and what it means for both him and you.
