Andrew Winetroub is an associate in Nixon Peabody’s Complex Commercial Disputes practice group. He represents clients across a range of leading industries, from semiconductors to health care, in complex litigation.
I focus my practice on commercial, intellectual property, and other complex business disputes. I help guide clients through each phase of litigation, from claim assessment at the outset of a dispute all the way through trial. At every step, I work with clients to advance their business objectives, which have recently ranged from obtaining an early, favorable settlement in defending against a trademark infringement claim to prevailing at trial for a client that had been victimized by trade secret theft. Those experiences have shaped my ability to efficiently draft pleadings, engage in fact and expert discovery, and craft winning arguments for motions and briefs.
Before joining NP, I worked as a business litigator in a prominent San Francisco boutique law firm.
Prior to attending law school, I was on the staff of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in Washington, D.C.
Intangible assets, including data, brand identity, and other intellectual property, will continue to increase in value and in importance to companies of all sizes. As a result, protection of those assets will become a topline priority for businesses. Comprehensive protection of such assets will require robust efforts to identify and, when necessary, enforce companies’ intellectual property rights.
