Andrew Morrison is internationally recognised as a leading Australian class actions lawyer providing advice, advocacy and strategic guidance in the defence of products, and financial- and competition-related multi-party claims.
Andrew’s experience in all forms of grouped proceedings reflects the development of modern Australian class actions practice and the breadth of the firm’s experience. Since 1992 he has been involved in and led the defence of the major mass product liability claims including involving intra-uterine contraceptives, breast implants, diet pills, anti-acne medication and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. As product-related class actions have evolved into financial loss class actions, Andrew’s work has included cases regarded as amongst the first of their kind in this country.
Andrew has twice served as President of Australia’s National Product Liability Association. He is an active member of the Defense Research Institute. He is also a member of the International Association of Defense Counsel and the Australian Insurance Law Association.
