Tauber is a “go-to star” and “a brilliant … legal thinker” who is “an expert written and oral communicator.”
The Legal 500 United States (2012)
Andrew Tauber is co-leader of Mayer Brown’s Supreme Court & Appellate practice. He focuses on railroad, medical device, federal preemption, product liability, and First Amendment cases, but has successfully briefed and argued a wide variety of other issues, including the denial of ERISA benefits, attorney-client privilege, and antitrust liability for pre-bankruptcy conduct. A co-author of the treatise Federal Appellate Practice
, he regularly represents clients in the US Supreme Court, the various US Courts of Appeals, and state appellate courts.
In addition to his purely appellate work, Andy also works closely with trial lawyers to craft and preserve legal arguments for later appellate review by drafting motions to dismiss, motions in limine, and proposed jury instructions.
In 2013, Andy was awarded the Defense Research Institute’s G. Duffield Smith Outstanding Publication Award for his article, A Powerful Tool to Wield Early: How to Argue Medical Device Preemption.
Prior to joining Mayer Brown in 2005, Andy spent five years with a major New York firm, before which he served as a law clerk to the Hon. John G. Koeltl of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. He is fluent in German.
