Andrew Roberts

Director

Andrew has over nearly two decades experience working in the legal market and over the past decade his work has increasingly focused on mergers.

After leaving Law School, and having been a director at two London recruitment companies, Andrew established SSG Legal in 2000. SSG Legal works with a small group of established clients to help them grow by attracting key senior level lateral hires. In 2010 he founded Law League, the UK’s only specialist legal research and benchmarking organization. He sold Law League in 2015 in order to concentrate on law firm mergers under the Ampersand Legal brand.

His knowledge of the legal market plus his market intelligence and contact network enable our clients to achieve their goals by either locating the right merger target or conversely, selecting the right firm to acquire their practice.
