He also counsels clients on general antitrust issues and represents companies faced with significant litigation. Andy is listed in the Best Lawyers in America and in Who’s Who Legal as an “extremely well known” attorney who devotes substantial time to high-profile cartel litigation. Legal 500 2009 adds that he is "recognized as 'a star of the antitrust bar'" with "a focus on big-ticket litigation." He is a “‘formidable opponent 
 strong in terms of his substantive knowledge’ with ‘a lot of credibility with judges.’” Chambers USA 2008.
