About Andrew


Andrew founded the brand strategy and design practice First Glantz Design over a decade ago and has since helped clients create compelling brands, logos, digital and print marketing collateral, and web experiences.


Design has always been one of Andrew's many pursuits. He is currently an Associate at a multinational law firm in New York where his practice is focused on business restructuring and special situations. Andrew advises private equity funds, distressed debt and equity investors, banks, hedge funds, ad hoc creditor groups, trustees, and corporate clients on complex in- and out-of-court restructurings, distressed sale transactions, and high-stakes bankruptcy litigation matters. He has also successfully mediated dozens of cases on a pro bono basis in New York Civil and Small Claims Court. 


Andrew entered the practice of law after dedicating his early career to helping companies transform energy and environmental risks into opportunities for growth. For more than six years, he advised innovators and investors on sustainable business strategy, change management, marketing and design. He has helped clients streamline operations, develop compelling brands, and commercialize groundbreaking products—including the Chevrolet Volt. Andrew consulted on the launch of Broadscale Group, an investment firm that connects ready-to-scale energy technologies with fresh capital and resources. In 2014, he worked with Harvard Professor Susan Crawford on research for The Responsive City: Engaging Communities Through Data-Smart Governance, a book that examines the impact of crowdsourcing and predictive analytics on citizen engagement and the resilience of urban society.


Andrew has an undergraduate degree in economic history from the University of Pennsylvania and has been cited as a leading expert on the 17th-19th century British Window Tax.
