Andrew Alexander’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation; competition litigation and antitrust counseling; federal enforcement actions; trademark and copyright litigation; and healthcare regulatory matters. He represents businesses from many industries, including healthcare, agriculture, and manufacturing.
“It is generally said that any fool can make something complex; that the real challenge is making something simple. This is very true in litigation, where our clients face complex issues that must be argued with clarity. I am invigorated by such challenges in sophisticated litigation, and they confirm that I was made to do this work.”
