Attorney at Law
Based in DC but connected to WA, I oversee M&A*, capital financing, and provide ongoing business and strategic consulting for growing companies in tech, healthcare, govcon, and critical infrastructure construction. This gives me insight into every facet of business transactions and legal risk.
Some success stories include negotiating deals on behalf of start-ups with top national brands and Fortune 500's including Blizzard, Capcom, MLB, Booz Allen, etc., as well as Fortune 15-sized federal agencies (having work in leadership inside one), leading to explosive growth.

"“Andre helped me negotiate a resolution to a contract issue and was able to recover everything I was owed without litigation. I highly recommend him, I always call him!” — Eve Nunez, President, Help4Kidz"
"“Andre did an excellent job drafting our first Intellectual Property strategy and utility patent application for our medical technology start-up company, and provided us valuable counsel on a wide range of business issues. Andre always started with the business challenge in mind and how best to solve it, even if it sometimes meant reducing our use of his services if that was overall better for our company. I would happily use his services again.” Robert Topp, PhD, RN, Patricia A. Chin Nursing Research Endowed Professor and former CEO of Care Technologies, Inc."
