Summary

Andrew focuses his practice in the areas of construction law, commercial litigation, and professional liability. With over a decade of experience, he represents and counsels owners, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, material suppliers, and design professionals in all aspects of construction, including contract drafting, risk management, investigations, dispute resolution, and litigation.

He has handled disputes involving construction defects, change orders, project delays, differing site conditions, failure to pay, contract interpretation, design errors and omissions, mechanics liens, payment and performance bonds, and prompt pay issues. In addition to his construction practice, Andrew represents clients in a broad range of business and commercial disputes that involve breach of contract, non-competition/non-solicitation agreements, trade secrets, tort-based claims, and others.

While appreciating the complexity of issues in the construction and business industries, Andrew leverages his background in accounting with his legal knowledge to provide clients with practical and effective guidance so that they can achieve their goals or resolve the issues they are facing. As a result, he partners with clients to understand their operations, learn their objectives, and facilitate a trusting relationship.
