The Columbus Business First has named Squire Patton Boggs Senior Associate Andrew King to its annual list of “40 Under 40,” which recognizes young professionals in the Central Ohio region with outstanding career achievements, who are also making great strides in shaping the community's future.
Andrew represents and advocates for clients in state and federal courts across the country. With a focus on complex civil litigation and alternative dispute resolution, Andrew brings a competitive drive to cases involving contract disputes, business torts, real estate and construction disputes, products liability, cross-border litigation, and trade secret and intellectual property disputes.
Andrew further advises clients on risk management and exposure. By addressing potential liability before litigation, he is able to position his clients for success in any future adversarial proceedings and can often help clients avoid litigation entirely. In addition to his trial practice, Andrew advises clients in the sports sector, with a focus on navigating the new legal framework regarding name, image, and likeness (NIL).
In addition to his professional accomplishments, Andrew, a Columbus native, works hard to elevate and give back to Central Ohio. He served as pro bono counsel for, and as an advisor to, the Save The Crew grassroots organization, which was an internationally recognized, year-long grassroots campaign from the Central Ohio community to halt the relocation of the Columbus Crew SC of Major League Soccer from Columbus to Austin, Texas. Andrew also successfully represented an individual seeking asylum in the United States, in which the individual would have faced likely physical harm or death if deported. Additionally, he has defended and represented indigent tenants against landlords in various rent escrow cases.
The Columbus Business First, joining with the Columbus Metropolitan Library, will honor recipients at its Gala Celebration, which will be held on May 25 at the Hilton Columbus Downtown.
