Andrew Tragardh

After a brief period in law enforcement in the 1980’s, Andrew Tragardh became a commercial litigation solicitor with one of the most prestigious law firms in Australia, Arthur Robinson & Hedderwicks (now known as Allens Linklaters).

He then moved to Madgwicks Lawyers, a firm with a heavy focus on insolvency which at the time acted for the liquidators of the now infamous Pyramid Building Society. Encouraged by the partners of the firm, Andrew completed an overseas secondment with a firm of private commercial fraud investigators in London, England; Network Security Management Ltd. In London, he worked hand in glove with the investigators and external lawyers in a variety of fraud related cases, including matters where assets were traced to foreign jurisdictions.

Upon his return to Australia, Andrew forged a formidable reputation for acting for organisations and individuals affected by fraud and related conduct. In 1998 he was the first lawyer to complete the Certified Fraud Investigators Course – held by the Victoria Police Major Fraud Squad in conjunction with the Faculty of Law and Management at Latrobe University. In 2000-2001 Andrew represented a significant party called before the Metropolitan Ambulance Service Royal Commission who was exonerated from all allegations of misconduct.

After 11 years as a solicitor, Andrew joined the Victorian Bar, and for the next 14 years he had a reputation as the ‘go to’ fraud barrister, recognised by his peers and the Courts as an expert in commercial fraud cases and white collar crime defence. His work at the Bar included appearing in Courts in Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland. Andrew’s pre-eminence was recognised in the 2019 Best Lawyers awards.

Andrew founded Duxton Hill in December of 2019.
