"I was a founding partner of the US division of a global construction management firm. After an extended period of time, the firm decided to bring my relationship with the firm to an end. I called Andrew who renegotiated the terms of my "exit" in a way that allowed me to proceed with my professional life and to separate from the firm on good terms. Any lawyer could have read the documents but Andrew also "heard" what was really being said and he guided me through the transaction successfully."

"We had already signed a long-term lease when we engaged Andrew to help us renegotiate it. Misison critical rights had not been included in the signed lease, the economics of the transaction had changed dramatically and the subsequent negotiations were trying and complex. Andrew worked seamlessly with our corporate general counsels in the US and off-shore (who were not native English speakers) which made the effort much easier. Andrew's commitment to our business objectives coupled with his creative resolutions of difficult problems ultimately resulted in a renegotiated lease that allowed the transaction to proceed."

Work History

OlenderFeldman, LLP

Counsel to the Firm

Sep 2014 - Present

As Counsel to the Firm, I specialize both in real estate and start-up transactions, the latter arising out of my participation as an executive or consultant in various real estate and Internet start-ups over the last 35 years. Typically, I now assist clients with managing “difficult” legal situations that require creative business solutions.
