Biography

Andrew Forman's practice involves counseling clients in a wide range of antitrust matters, with a specific focus on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures, and representing clients in connection with investigations by the U.S. Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). Andy also has experience in private antitrust litigation, including antitrust class action litigation. He has represented clients in matters involving a variety of industries, including the software, pharmaceutical, airline, automobile, semiconductor, industrial and engineered products, and consumer products industries. Among the clients Andy has represented are US Airways, Pfizer, Microsoft, Eli Lilly, Anheuser-Busch Inbev, and Goodyear.

Recognized as a leading antitrust lawyer, Andy was recommended in The Legal 500 (2012 -2013) for his work in merger clearances and was part of the team accepting Benchmark Litigation's award for 2013 U.S. Antitrust Group of the Year and for a national Impact Case of the Year award for the US Airways/American merger clearance. His work for US Airways in connection with its merger with American Airlines was also recognized by Global Competition Review as the 2014 Matter of the Year.

Prior to joining Cadwalader, Andy worked for the FTC's Bureau of Competition (Mergers I), where he helped lead antitrust investigations in large mergers and acquisitions in the pharmaceutical, medical device, consumer products, industrial products, and aircraft components industries.

Andy received his J.D., cum laude, from Georgetown University and his undergraduate degree, as an Honors Graduate, from Washington University in St. Louis. Following law school, he served as a judicial law clerk for the D.C. Court of Appeals. He is admitted to the bar in the District of Columbia and Maryland.
