Andy Szot has been litigating complex commercial cases for over 20 years. His national legal practice primarily involves prosecuting claims for antitrust, consumer protection, securities fraud, and False Claims Act violations. Andy litigates claims as class actions, but also represents large companies who have decided to pursue claims individually. His legal work has been recognized by his peers, who selected him as an Illinois Rising Star for four consecutive years starting in 2010.
Before entering law school, Andy spent a year teaching and mentoring disadvantaged elementary school students as an AmeriCorps service volunteer in Detroit, earning him a nomination for the Michigan Governor’s Service Award. He has repeatedly served as co-chairperson of the Human Rights Committee of the Chicago Bar Association. Andy also served on the Advisory Board of Art Works Projects for Human Rights, and was a member of the legal advisory team for the creation of The Prosecutors, a documentary film that addresses sexual violence in areas of conflict.
