Andrew Rees (Capital Law)

Andrew Rees

Andrew is a Solicitor in our Employment & Immigration team.

Andrew joined Capital Law as a trainee solicitor in October 2016 in the Commercial Disputes department. Since then, he has completed seats in both the Employment and Corporate & Commercial teams, and spent nine months on secondment at The Royal Mint assisting their in-house legal team with a range of matters including implementing a plan to ensure compliance with the GDPR.

Andrew supports lawyers from across the wider Employment & Immigration team and works with a range of clients on a variety of Employment work.

Andrew has completed several challenges including the Three Peaks Challenge, the Velothon and Cardiff Half Marathon to raise money for a number of charities. He also plays an active part in his local church, running youth groups and volunteering at a winter night shelter for the homeless.

During his training contract, Andrew has assisted and been involved in delivering training on disciplinary procedure, the GDPR and the impact of devolution and welsh law.

Andrew made an invaluable contribution whilst on secondment with the business over a 9 month period. He assumed responsibility in updating our suite of template agreements and worked closely with the Compliance team to ensure the business was GDPR ready. Andrew displayed excellent research and drafting skills whilst carrying out a variety of tasks with different departments across the Mint. He has developed a good knowledge of our business, which cannot be under-estimated. I look forward to working with him in the future.
