About Andrew J. Demko

Andrew Demko helps companies in high-stakes disputes involving their customers. He has litigated hundreds of class and individual actions against financial services providers, banks and companies selling packaged foods and consumer products. His work includes not just class action litigation at the trial level, but also appeals, regulatory matters and government enforcement actions.

A tailored approach to high-risk litigation

Class action litigation and other consumer disputes present serious risks for corporations. Andy understands that a one-size-fits-all legal strategy does not work. He tailors his approach based on the strength of the claims, the amount in controversy, reputational risk and more. Taking those factors into account, at the outset of each case Andy identifies litigation goals with the client and creates a strategy to achieve them.

Andy has represented companies in a variety of industries, including financial services, media, entertainment, technology and securities. He also has experience with environmental and employment litigation, including ERISA lawsuits and wage and hour class actions.

In his class action practice, Andy has significant experience briefing issues on appeal, and has successfully petitioned the Ninth Circuit for permission to appeal class-certification decisions. His appellate work builds on his experience, earlier in his career, serving as a law clerk to Judge Susan H. Black of the US Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit.
