His clients include nonprofit and for profit hospitals and hospital systems, health plans, physician organizations and specialty services providers who rely on his advice in merger and acquisition transactions, network and strategic development, regulatory compliance and corporate governance.  Andy counsels nonprofit organizations outside of the health care industry on governance, transactions and tax compliance issues.  In addition he is called upon by individuals with sophisticated business interests for his legal and practical judgment on investments, charitable activities, succession planning for family enterprises and disputes.

Beyond his professional career, Andy has been engaged in a variety of community activities.  He presently serves as Special Counsel to the Dwight Eisenhower Memorial Commission, a federal body that is charged with establishing a memorial to President Eisenhower in Washington, D.C. to be designed by Frank Gehry.  His other community service includes Chief of Protocol for the Aquatic Sports in the XXIII Olympic Games (1984), a member of the Board of Directors and Board of Governors of the UCLA Foundation, membership on the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce Health Care Committee, member of the Executive Committee of the Junior Statesman Foundation of America and an officer of the St. Sophia Foundation, which supports the Greek Orthodox Cathedral of Los Angeles.  He has provided  pro bono legal services to many community organizations, including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, International Trade Education Programs, Inc., Texas Educational Theatre Association, Lineage Dance Company and the Axios Foundation for Worthiness, the Eisenhower Institute and the Los Angeles Mozart Orchestra.
