Andrew’s practice focuses on counseling companies and executives in compensation, benefits, and employment matters in all phases of the employment relationship and in a broad variety of corporate transactions. He draws on a wealth of experience when drafting and advising clients about the design, implementation, termination, regulatory compliance, and enforceability considerations of employment agreements, noncompetition and nondisclosure covenants, non-qualified deferred compensation plans, tax-qualified retirement plans, and equity incentive plans.

A former litigator and two-time federal judicial law clerk, Andrew is skilled at efficiently analyzing employment and compensation disputes and any potential claims under federal and state laws, and in translating legal complexities into clear decisions and recommendations that are useful and tailored to each client’s needs.

Andrew’s practice additionally involves assisting the Firm’s public company clients, including over a dozen financial institutions and REITs, with SEC reporting obligations for executive and equity-based compensation. He also participates in the Firm’s robust pro bono practice, through which he has provided ongoing advice in employment matters to a Chicago-based non-profit and successfully represented an indigent civil rights plaintiff in federal court.

Outside of his professional commitments, Andrew enjoys traveling, staying active, and house music.
