Commercial Litigation

  • Andrew defended a publicly traded insurance company together with its officers and directors in multiple shareholder class actions filed in state and federal courts seeking to enjoin the company’s acquisition in a merger transaction valued in excess of $220 million. Andrew’s instrumental contributions to the defense team helped bring about a highly favorable global settlement that permitted the merger to close on schedule and without modification of the terms challenged in the lawsuits.
  • Andrew defended executives in multiple restrictive covenant cases involving medical device manufacturers and specialized industrial products manufacturers.
  • Andrew also has experience in law firm break-ups and internal partnership disputes, and has successfully litigated cases concerning complex partnership compensation and valuation issues. He has significant experience guiding clients through the myriad ethical and professional issues that arise when lawyers part ways.

Title IX Litigation

  • Andrew is an integral part of the team of attorneys who represent and counsel college students from schools throughout the country who are subjected to campus disciplinary proceedings or appeals for any alleged Title IX or student code violations in higher education. Andrew has brought successful lawsuits against colleges and universities across the country and obtained several notable decisions that have influenced the case law surrounding Title IX litigation.


  • Andrew represented receivers appointed in SEC, FTC and U.S. attorney initiated enforcement actions. Working closely with federal law enforcement agencies and court-appointed forensic accountants, Andrew successfully negotiated and litigated to recover millions of dollars in assets to benefit victims of complex financial and consumer fraud on a national scale.
  • Andrew’s receivership work has helped to recover millions for victims of financial and consumer fraud. For example, acting on behalf of a court-appointed receiver in a massive consumer fraud case, Andrew developed a compelling case against a significant regional bank, which garnered the attention of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). Armed with the record developed in the case, the OCC forced the bank to create a victim fund in excess of $150 million, the distribution of which was overseen by the receiver with Andrew’s assistance to achieve a nearly 100% rate of recovery for victims.

Professional & Fiduciary Litigation

  • Andrew defended former executors of an estate worth in excess of $60 million in one of the largest estate litigations in the history of Pennsylvania, which took more than nine years to litigate and involved more than 70 depositions, an extensive trial and multiple appeals. The vast majority of the claims lodged against the executors were dismissed at trial, and most of the adverse findings against the former executors were reversed on appeal.
  • Andrew has defended Am Law 100 as well as regional law firms and accounting firms in professional malpractice cases.
