For nearly two decades, Andrew has represented investment banks, broker dealers, hedge funds, and other financial institutional clients in connection with the purchase and sale of various U.S., European, and other global fixed income and high-yield investment products. Such assets include: par and distressed bank loans, high-yield debt, claims in bankruptcy and insolvency proceedings, and reorg equities and related proceeds.

Andrew has been engaged by investors seeking to acquire strategic positions in the indebtedness of distressed companies and often provides advice to these clients on related bankruptcy and restructuring issues. He also provides guidance to newly formed hedge funds in connection with the planning and development of their trading and investment activities. Andrew also works closely with the firm’s International Trade Group, providing strategic analysis to financial services clients to help them understand the impact of recent Russian sanctions on their lending and investment activities. 

Andrew advises clients on all aspects of the purchase and sale of cross-border loans, including the analysis of loan agreements, collateral transfer and alternative closing structures.
