    Andrew A. Peterson is a Shareholder in the White Plains office of Jackson Lewis P.C. Mr. Peterson joined Jackson Lewis as a summer associate in 1979, and was one of the first six attorneys to staff the White Plains office when it opened in 1981. (The office now has more than thirty attorneys.)

    Mr. Peterson specializes in traditional labor law, as very broadly defined. He regularly acts as management's chief spokesperson in a wide range of challenging bargaining scenarios (both public and private sectors), and advises employers concerning the contract administration issues that flow from his role at the table. From the National Labor Relations Board and various State agencies to the highest Federal and State Courts, Mr. Peterson handles all litigation that arises from the employer/union relationship in virtually every manner of judicial, administrative and/or contractual forum.

    Mr. Peterson has written several articles for legal/scholarly journals, including The Labor Law Journal, the Industrial and Labor Relations Review, the Employee Relations Law Journal, and Pace Law Review, and regularly speaks before management groups on a variety of labor and employment law subjects.

    A longtime basketball fan and youth basketball coach, Mr. Peterson serves as Vice President and General Counsel of the Tri-County Basketball League (115 teams in New York's Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess Counties). He also enjoys salt-water fly fishing (especially at Martha's Vineyard), and playing his National 14-fret Style O.
