For over 30 years Andy has been an ardent legal advocate for creators of intellectual property and entertainment entrepreneurs, predominately those in the music industry. His client base spans the spectrum from emerging talent to iconic music superstars and from established companies to start-ups.
Andy is well versed in the challenges facing the music industry and has spoken at numerous educational events, been featured in books, quoted in Billboard and the Wall Street Journal, and interviewed on NPR. Andy is actively involved with NARAS’ NY Chapter’s Board of Governors, the Board of Directors of the TJ Martell Foundation (the music industry’s charity committed to finding a cure for cancer) and the ABA’s Music & Personal Appearances Division as its Vice Chair.

When asked why Andy became an attorney in the music business he’ll readily assert it’s because he has no musical talent whatsoever but loves to do battle in negotiations and hang out in rock clubs.
