Andrew’s practice area is focused around Mergers & Acquisitions and Business Transition Planning. Andrew specializes in helping business owners and entrepreneurs maximize value throughout the lifecycle of their business: from startup to transition and beyond. Andrew’s early exposure to being on the ground floor of building and growing a business at the beginning of his career, as an early stage equity partner in a FinTech in Silicon Valley, affords him with a unique appreciation and understanding of entrepreneurship.
Andrew is a multigenerational Washingtonian and leads his personal and professional life on the principle of giving both his time and efforts to supporting those in need in his local community and beyond. Andrew serves on the board of Hearts & Homes for Youth, a nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering youth to make positive life choices and build brighter futures. Andrew previously served on Georgetown University Hospital’s NICU Parent Advisory Board as well as the Montgomery County Association for Hearing Impaired Children, an organization near and dear to Andrew given his oldest daughter was born with bilateral hearing loss and has worn hearing aids since she was an infant.
