Andrew Pawley

Andrew is an experienced consultant and facilitator who enjoys helping senior executives and their teams improve engagement and performance. He focuses extensively on the legal sector, working with both law firms and in-house teams to assist them in navigating the commercial and leadership challenges they face in what are often increasingly unpredictable and changing landscapes. In this capacity, he also acts as a periodic sounding board to a number of FTSE-100 General Counsel.

In 2010, he carried out a major study into the challenges facing modern GCs and their legal communities and authored the award-winning Value Dynamics GC toolkit, which contains a wealth of practical insights, tools and frameworks. Combining this research with his experience in leadership development, he then created and continues to facilitate the highly successful and award-winning Future Leaders’ Programme on behalf of Addleshaw Goddard. This annual modular programme has helped in excess of 400 of the top talent within the European in-house legal sector explore and address a wide range of professional challenges and has a thriving alumni network that meets annually.

He has facilitated numerous programmes internationally, including in-person GC Forums in the Middle East and Africa and in-house legal team offsites in a wide variety of international markets. During 2022, he designed and facilitated a pan-African virtual modular legal leadership programme bringing together a cohort of circa fifty in-house practitioners and their legal advisers to explore common challenges and share insights.

Prior to becoming a consultant and adviser, he trained as a Chartered Accountant at Andersen and progressed to be its Partner responsible for professional development. He enhanced this commercial experience by obtaining an MBA from the London Business School focusing specifically on strategy, marketing and organisational development.

He now lives between the UK and Spain and in his spare time, loves to travel, bake and is an avid photographer and terrible but enthusiastic golfer.
