Enforcement 40 for 2013: Andrew J. Levander

“Trusted adviser to the nation’s CEOs to handle their most complex, bet-the-company situations, Andy Levander has served as a steady hand and perceptive and experienced counselor for over three decades.  His sage advice and dignified manner coupled with his vast trial know-how (he has tried over fifty cases) make him a formidable government adversary both respected and admired by SEC staff and federal prosecutors alike.  His government experience, obtained early on in his career (he made his first appearance before the supreme Court at age 25), especially working in the Securities and Commodities Task Force of the SDNY, provides Andy with a unique perspective from both sides of the table.  Don’t be fooled by Andy’s disarming  trademark bow ties–his intellectual wherewithal is top-notch and he has an intimidating courtroom presence.”
