As chair of the Compensation & Employment Group, Andy leads the Firm’s executive compensation and employee benefits practice with skill and insight brought on from years of counseling boards of directors, compensation committees, and senior management of both public and private companies. Whether its the design and implementation of equity and cash incentive programs, nonqualified deferred compensation plans and tax-qualified retirement plans, or advising clients during their mergers, acquisitions, and other business transactions, Andy is always at the ready to hone in on a wide range of issues with laser-like focus.

This broad experience doesn’t exclude the administration and compliance side of compensation and employee benefits matters either. Andy regularly works with the legal, human resources, and finance functions of public and private companies to assist them with the various concerns commonly encountered when dealing with the correction of tax-qualified plan errors, ERISA’s fiduciary duty and prohibited transaction rules, and reviews by regulatory agencies, including DOL and IRS audits.

A frequent speaker at seminars on executive compensation and employee benefits, Andy is an adjunct professor in the Master of Science in Taxation Program at DePaul University’s Kellstadt Graduate School of Business. He was also a former Vice Chair of the Board of Trustees at Merit Music located in Chicago, which provides high-quality music education so children may experience its transformative power. Andy himself is a very, very below average piano student.
