Andrew Goldenberg


Andrew has an active trial and appellate practice focused on complex commercial litigation.  His clients and matters span multiple industries and subject areas.  For example, Andrew has represented distressed debt hedge funds seeking to collect over €2 billion owed under defaulted notes issued by private equity funds, hedge fund creditors in an involuntary bankruptcy proceeding seeking to collect €110 million in monies owed under a subordinated debt offering, former employees in a bankruptcy proceeding in connection with over $300 million in claims for unpaid compensation and an international consulting company in a $20 million bankruptcy reorganization in New York, Tunisia and the United Kingdom.  

Andrew has tried commercial jury cases as lead and co-counsel to verdict in state and federal courts and has argued appeals, including in the Second Circuit Court of Appeals.  In 2014, Andrew played a critical role in securing a $565 million judgment for his clients against issuers of defaulted notes in a lawsuit challenging a dividend recapitalization on fraudulent conveyance grounds.  In 2018, Andrew represented creditors in a successful appeal to the New York Court of Appeals that involved novel issues of standing of an indenture trustee and alter ego claims.

Although Andrew’s primary area of expertise is commercial litigation, he also assists clients in corporate matters ranging from equity incentive plans, strategic alliance and joint venture agreements, technology development and implementation, as well as securities regulation and real estate ventures.  

Andrew is admitted to practice in the State of New York, the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern District of New York and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.  Andrew is a member of the New York City Bar Association and is a committee member of the Alternative Dispute Resolution Committee.
