On the regulatory side, Andy counsels clients in the areas of corporate compliance and corporate governance, digital health, clinically integrated networks and population health management,  fraud and abuse, HIPAA, clinical research, medical staff matters, Medicare/Medicaid and the accreditation of residency and fellowship programs in teaching hospitals throughout the country.

Andy counsels educational institutions at all levels, including colleges and universities, and  graduate and professional schools.  He has 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 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 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 challenge adverse accreditation determinations, including handling ACGME and LCME administrative hearings.
