Andy has been a transactional and regulatory health lawyer for more than 30 years. He represents a wide array of clients in the health industry, both on the provider side (including multihospital systems and individual hospitals of all sizes, correctional healthcare providers, long-term care facilities and nursing homes, and physician groups), and on the payor side (including managed care companies, HMOs, and prepaid health service plans).

He is active in health industry mergers and acquisitions, and the establishment of joint ventures and other collaborative affiliations. In the regulatory area, he counsels clients in connection with corporate compliance and corporate governance, fraud and abuse, hospital-medical staff issues (including medical staff disputes), HIPAA, and Medicare/Medicaid matters.

Andy also conducts a national practice relating to accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME), of graduate medical education programs in academic medical centers and teaching hospitals and by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education (LCME). He regularly counsels institutions and teaching programs throughout the country on compliance with ACGME and Residency Review Committee (RRC) requirements, and medical schools on compliance with LCME standards. His accreditation clients include many prestigious medical schools and academic medical centers as well as other teaching institutions across the United States. Andy works with these clients on their periodic reviews, and represents them when necessary to rebut adverse evaluations, including handling ACGME and LCME administrative hearings.

Andy also counsels educational institutions at all levels, including secondary schools, colleges and universities and graduate and professional schools. He also had a significant practice representing not-for-profit and tax-exempt organizations on a broad range of matters, including executive compensation analyses for purposes of demonstrating an organization's compliance with the Intermediate Sanctions regulations of the Internal Revenue Service.

Andy has published texts and articles in a variety of legal and health industry journals, and is also a frequent speaker at hospital and healthcare symposia on a wide range of health law issues. He has appeared before professional organizations, including the American Health Lawyers Association, Catholic Managed Care Executive Forum, New York State Bar Association, Health Leaders of New York, University HealthSystem Consortium, Greater New York Hospital Association, Healthcare Financial Management Association, Association of Program Directors in Surgery, and the Association for Hospital Medical Education, among others.
