  • Counseling clients on a wide variety of antitrust and other issues arising in business and litigation contexts, including interlocking directorates, price discrimination, exclusive dealing, resale price maintenance, and trade secrets.

Andrew joined the firm from the Antitrust Division of the United States Department of Justice (DOJ), where he served as Counsel to the Assistant Attorney General. While at the Antitrust Division, Andrew worked closely with Assistant Attorneys General and Deputies on civil merger and non-merger investigations, matters proceeding to trial, and appeals.
