Andrew S. Gordon
Andrew Gordon provides his clients with deep insight on government procurement, public sector capital projects, real estate transactions and transportation issues from his 29 years of experience as a former attorney for Pennsylvania government. Before joining Saul Ewing Arnstein & Lehr, Andrew served as chief counsel for the agency responsible for core operations of state government, the Pennsylvania Department of General Services. Before that, he was chief counsel of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) for 17 years, during which he had frequent interaction with the Governor's Office as well as with legislators and their staff as he managed the legal office of an agency with a budget of more than $6 billion.
Andrew built his skills as a litigator through his work in the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General, where he was both chief and deputy attorney general for the Litigation Section. The latter role required him to represent many executive branch agencies in state and federal trial and appellate litigation and he argued two cases before the U.S. Supreme Court. He has appeared numerous times before the Commonwealth Court, the Pennsylvania Supreme Court federal District Courts and federal Courts of Appeals. He also spent eight years handling commercial litigation in private practice, where he represented clients dealing with state government, including the Departments of Banking, Insurance, Revenue, Environmental Resources and General Services.
In addition to his Pennsylvania bar admission, Andrew is also admitted to practice in the U.S. Supreme Court, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit, the U.S. District Court for the Middle and Eastern Districts of Pennsylvania and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
