Biography

Tauber is a “go-to star[]” and “a brilliant... legal thinker” who is “an expert written and oral communicator.”

The Legal 500 United States (2012) Andrew Tauber is a partner in Mayer Brown’s Supreme Court & Appellate practice who, according to The Legal 500 United States (2014), uses his “high-octane brain power to deliver superior advocacy.”

With substantial experience in matters of federal preemption, Andy devotes much of his practice to cases involving the medical-device and railroad industries, but has successfully briefed and argued a wide variety of cases for a wide variety of clients on issues as diverse as federal jurisdiction in product-liability cases, second-hand asbestos claims, attorney-client privilege, antitrust liability for pre-bankruptcy conduct, and First Amendment protections for commercial speech.

A co-author of the treatise Federal Appellate Practice, Andy regularly represents clients in the US Supreme Court, the various US Courts of Appeals, and state appellate courts throughout the country.

In addition to his purely appellate work, Andy also works closely with trial lawyers to craft and preserve legal arguments for later appellate review by drafting motions to dismiss, motions in limine, and proposed jury instructions. Recognizing the importance of issue preservation, clients frequently call on Andy to brief and argue motions to dismiss and other critical motions.

Andy serves as national coordinating counsel for clients with recurring legal issues that implicate unsettled areas of law (such as the preclusion of FELA claims and the preemption of product-liability claims). As coordinating counsel, Andy helps clients develop their litigation strategy, prepares materials for use by the clients’ other outside counsel, and reviews briefing by other outside counsel to ensure consistency across the clients’ litigation portfolio.

On behalf of medical device manufacturers, Andy has successfully briefed and argued a wide range of product-liability issues, including: federal preemption; federal jurisdiction; statute of limitations; negligence per se; application of Restatement (Second) of Torts 402A cmt. k; and, application of state consumer protection laws.

In 2013, Andy was awarded the Defense Research Institute’s G. Duffield Smith Outstanding Publication Award for his article, A Powerful Tool to Wield Early: How to Argue Medical Device Preemption.

On behalf of railroads, Andy has successfully briefed and argued a numerous issues under FELA, the LIA, the FRSA, and ICCTA, including: preclusion of FELA claims; LIA, FRSA, and ICCTA preemption; apportionment of damages; and, admissibility of evidence.

Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 2005, Andy spent five years with a major New York firm, before which he served as a law clerk to the Hon. John G. Koeltl of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. He is fluent in German.
