Andrew’s practice specializes in representing clients at all stages of the business life cycle – from formation or acquisition to exits. He regularly counsels clients on a broad range of corporate transactions, including acquisitions, sales, capital raises, minority investments, joint ventures and equity transfers. Andrew has also been selected to be included in the 2022 edition of the Best Lawyers: Ones to Watch in America for Mergers & Acquisitions Law.
As outside general counsel, in addition to working with clients to navigate day to day legal matters and risk analysis/mitigation, he regularly assists clients with respect to shareholder and operating agreements, employment, consulting and advisory agreements, commercial contracts, equity agreements and plans, and corporate and board governance matters.
Andrew also works closely with his DUGGAN BERTSCH colleagues advising clients with respect to trust and estate planning/implementation, family office administration and governance, wealth transfer planning, asset protection planning and charitable giving. In that regard, Andrew’s clients have access to the full gamut of private client services, with Andrew serving as the quarterback and point of contact the entire way.
Prior to joining DUGGAN BERTSCH, Andrew was a member of the private equity / mergers and acquisitions groups of each of Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP and Paul Hastings LLP in Chicago, IL. In those roles he concentrated on corporate transactional matters with an emphasis on mergers and acquisitions.
