Andrew Lugger is Plymouth born and bred and admits that he’s never strayed far from home. The son of an accountant, a love of history initially drew him towards a history degree with the ambition of becoming a teacher in the subject. Instead he studied law at Exeter, where he worked before returning to Plymouth. Andrew’s love of history didn’t disappear, though, and he studied part-time in Northumbria for a Masters using restrictive covenants as his dissertation. He also is a Master of Philosophy and the author of several books and articles, including many in The Solicitor’s Journal. Andrew was admitted as a Solicitor in 2001.


The area Andrew specialises in is one steeped in history, part of the attraction for him. Areas of expertise include: landlord and tenant (drafting all forms of leases), land acquisition and development, buying and selling of property, agricultural law (including conveying working farms, farming tenancies, licences and grazing agreements), drafting easements, rights of way and other third party rights over land, licensing and all aspects of the law relating to licensed premises plus wide experience of Section 84 applications to the Tribunal.


Andrew, who is married with a grown-up daughter, takes his love of legal history and writing seriously and is currently writing a book on Victorian law. He is also a trustee of several local charities.
