Andreas Wokutch

Overview of Experience and Nature of Practice:

Andreas’ practice primarily focuses on business and real estate transactions, including corporate transactions, commercial and construction agreements, leasing, and finance. While this practice involves a range of industries, Andreas frequently advises companies operating in the healthcare sector.

Prior to joining the firm, Andreas practiced in Southern California for five years. During that time, Andreas worked as an in-house attorney with the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power and as an associate with a full-service law firm with offices throughout California. Andreas’ in-house practice primarily involved advising on energy development projects, large-scale contracts and financing transactions, and compliance with energy and environmental laws. In turn, at his prior law firm Andreas advised businesses of varying size on construction, real estate development, environmental, and securities matters. Such advice was provided in the context of litigation and with regard to commercial operations. Through his work, Andreas has experience advising a number of publicly-traded companies. He has also represented privately-held tech and energy companies, developers, general contractors, subcontractors, architects, and engineers.

Prior to law school, Andreas worked in Washington, D.C. as a paralegal for an immigration law firm and as an honors intern for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
