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.

After Graham & James, he served as the general counsel of a securitization servicing and investing firm. In 1999, he returned to 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, securities litigation, real estate disputes (including complex foreclosures), legal and accounting and auditor 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.

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, bikes, skis, coaches, reads history, travels, and spends as much time with his family as possible.

After three years in Boston, Clark moved back to New York, where he now lives, to work out of Sullivan’s New York office.
