Andrew T. Solomon, Partner

Andrew T. Solomon has been a litigator and trial lawyer for more than 20 years. After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Washington University in St. Louis, Andrew attended Columbia University Law School. He graduated in 1995, was a Harlan Fiske Stone Scholar and a member of the Columbia University Business Law Review. After graduating, Andrew worked for two years as a litigator with Graham & James LLP, where he was an associate with Jennifer Cramer.

Then he served as the general counsel of a securitization servicing and investing firm for one year. In 1999 he returned to practice law at Sullivan & Worcester LLP (“S&W”). In his 17 years at S&W, Andrew headed up the firm’s litigation practice group and served on important partner committees, including partner compensation, lateral partner hiring, and associate hiring.

Andrew is a general litigator, but has had significant experience in the following areas: FINRA and SEC defense, real estate disputes, including complex foreclosures, legal and accounting malpractice, inter-partner disputes in small business and joint ventures, bank loan enforcement and defense, non-compete and general employment contract litigation, distributor disputes, and select white collar criminal matters.

Andrew has a national practice, having litigated in courts and arbitration proceedings in numerous states, including New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Florida, California, Nebraska and Texas. He has tried jury and non-jury cases to verdict. He volunteers at Columbia University for moot court and trial practice matters. He has served as a volunteer arbitrator in the small claims part of the New York County District Court.

He has lectured numerous times, including having run several CLE programs for lawyers on contract law, successor liability, and antitrust. For fun, Andrew roots for the NY Giants, runs, skis, coaches, reads history, travels, and spends as much time with his family as possible.
