Andrew has a Ph.D. in organic chemistry from the University of Colorado, where my thesis work was on novel synthetic organic reactions, organometallic chemistry, and organic synthesis. I was employed in a scientific capacity at major pharmaceutical firms (innovator and generic) for a number of years before attending Fordham Law School.
As an attorney, Andrew worked at several law firms, including Kenyon & Kenyon LLP, a major intellectual property firm. Andrew also was an in-house counsel for a small generic drug company.
Andrew is highly experienced in all areas of patent and IP law, including patent drafting/prosecution, patent litigation, license agreements, and Hatch-Waxman (generic drug) law.
Although his background is in chemistry, Andrew has practiced in a broad range of technology areas, including new chemical compounds, pharmaceutical sciences, biological sciences, materials, polymers, adhesives, flavoring agents, and engineering. He has over forty published papers or presentations and co-authored a chapter in a textbook on Markush structure searching.
