OVERVIEW

Having spent a decade as a federal prosecutor and several years in private practice, Andrew Young brings his extensive knowledge, savvy and experience to his white collar criminal defense, government investigations and civil litigation practice.

Andrew is a strategic thinker who is laser-focused on achieving the right result in the most efficient way possible. And for those disputes that must go to trial, he has the courtroom experience and presence needed to take a case all the way to the jury.

Andrew previously served as a federal prosecutor, both as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in in the Major Frauds and Public Corruption Unit in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California, and as a trial attorney in the U.S. Department of Justice’s Tax Division. In those roles, he secured more than 100 convictions and the seizure of more than $35 million in cases ranging involving corporate fraud, money laundering, public corruption, RICO violations, bankruptcy fraud, and tax fraud.  Andrew also served as the Bankruptcy Fraud Coordinator for the U.S. Attorney’s Office.  

He successfully tried more than a dozen complex, multi-week cases throughout the country, including in California, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.  As a prosecutor, Andrew also led the first-of-its-kind prosecution of a telecommunications company CEO for supplying encryption services to transnational criminal organizations, leading teams of agents from the FBI, DEA, the Australian Federal Police, and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. Andrew’s work on those matters was covered in Rolling Stone, the Washington Post, The New York Times, and numerous publications in Australia and Canada.      

Andrew focuses his practice in the areas of white collar criminal defense, compliance, internal investigations, and complex business litigation, providing targeted counsel and representation based on his deep knowledge of federal criminal and tax laws. Drawing upon his experience managing large international teams, he takes the reins of even the most challenging cases, managing the parties and processes involved to the best possible resolution.

As a litigator and trial lawyer, Andrew focuses on being tactical and straightforward, making him an effective communicator. He is known for being calm and collected even under intense pressure, and for working collaboratively.

Before joining the Department of Justice, Andrew worked at several large national law firms as a trial attorney representing clients in antitrust, commercial, complex product liability and mass tort, and white collar defense matters.
