Biography:

Who's Who Legal Product Liability Defence

Andrew is internationally recognised as a leading class actions lawyer in Australia's premier product liability law practice. He has over 25 years' experience in the defence of product liability claims including pharmaceutical products and devices, asbestos, motor vehicles and allegedly defective consumer products. Andrew has defended some of Australia's highest-profile class actions involving complex pharmaceutical, medical device, competition, shareholder and commercial claims, with results shaping the development of Australia's class action law.

Andrew has been actively involved in running trials over the past two and a half decades and brings his extensive experience in defending and resolving class actions, whether by having them struck out at an early stage, managing representative trials to resolve critical issues or implementing resolution schemes. He understands the tactical and procedural nuances of class action litigation and works with clients to develop strategies to address them. He is also engaged to provide strategic advice to boards and senior executives in relation to high-level issues and tactics.

Andrew is part of the team that has been at the forefront in developing both the procedural and substantive law in this area of practice and has defended claims bought by the major plaintiff law firms.  His experience in tort-based group litigation includes most of the major Australian product-related class actions involving intra-uterine contraceptives, breast implants, diet pills, anti-acne medication and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or pelvic implants.  Andrew complements this experience with a significant risk management advisory and regulatory practice.

Andrew has twice served as president of Australia's National Product Liability Association. He is an active member of the Defense Research Institute, having chaired the international issues group with the product liability committee. He is also a member of the International Association of Defense Counsel and the Australian Insurance Law Association.

WWL says: Andrew Morrison is “one of the very best” and is recognised for his distinguished practice which includes environment and toxic tort claims.
