Lewis Brisbois Maryland Office Grows Business Practices Team with Commercial Litigation Partner Hire
Baltimore, Md. (April 28, 2020) – Lewis Brisbois is pleased to welcome Andrew Gendron to its Baltimore office as a partner in the firm’s Complex Business & Commercial Litigation Practice.
Mr. Gendron joins Lewis Brisbois from Venable LLP, and brings to the firm more than 30 years of experience handling complex commercial litigation matters throughout the country at both the trial and appellate levels.
Throughout his career as a litigator, Mr. Gendron has focused his practice on complex product liability, toxic tort, environmental, corporate governance, fiduciary duty, and professional liability matters. He has extensive experience handling class actions and multidistrict litigation, and has won numerous verdicts in multimillion-dollar high-stakes cases. His clients have included pharmaceutical companies, petroleum refiners, chemical manufacturers, real estate investment trusts (REITs), banks, law firms, and high-net-worth individuals.
Mr. Gendron made the move to Lewis Brisbois in part for its nationwide platform, cross-practice collaboration, and diverse workforce.
"Lewis Brisbois provides truly national reach, a collegial team of outstanding trial lawyers, and a demonstrated commitment to diversity,” said Mr. Gendron. “I am excited to be a part of the Baltimore office's growth."
“The Baltimore office is privileged to have an attorney with Andy’s outstanding reputation, years of experience, and involvement in the community join our litigation team,” said Baltimore Managing Partner Scott Krause. “Andy’s practice blends well with the firm’s national commercial and complex business litigation group. I trust that Andy will flourish with the firm to the benefit of all, particularly the clients we serve.”
Although litigation matters comprise the majority of Mr. Gendron’s practice, he also regularly collaborates with transactional attorneys to provide deal-related, risk management advice.
A graduate of the University of Maryland Carey School of Law, Mr. Gendron is actively involved in the Baltimore community, volunteering for several local organizations.
