Andrew A. Bernstein’s practice focuses on capital markets and transactions for sovereigns. 

Andrew’s practice has a dual focus. A significant part of his practice involves international securities offerings by French companies, including initial public offerings, other equity offerings, bank regulatory capital securities, high-yield bonds and investment-grade debt sold in the U.S. market. He also regularly represents sovereigns and state-owned companies in international transactions, particularly oil and gas projects and financings, as well as disputes.

Andrew joined the firm in 1987, became a partner in 1996, and became senior counsel in 2023. He practiced in the Moscow office from 1992 to 1994, and was resident in the New York office from 1994 to 1997.
