Andrew Freeborn
{ Bio Portrait }

Having previously served as in-house competition counsel for both Google and Lyft, Drew’s expertise is in providing clients practical, concise, and business-savvy antitrust advice so that clients can focus on what is most important – their business – while minimizing antitrust risk. Drew has advised clients (including internal c-suite executives) on a wide variety of antitrust issues that span Section 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act, including: developing competitive intelligence policies, participating in industry associations (including benchmarking and Noerr-Pennington petitioning conduct), refusals to deal, competitor partnerships, M&A due diligence, investor relations calls (signaling risk), bundled discounting and other pricing practices, product design changes, and proper information sharing practices. Drew has also designed and implemented company-wide antitrust compliance policies and trained thousands of business stakeholders on proper antitrust practices.

Drew also has substantial litigation and investigation experience having represented clients in connection with Section 1 and Section 2 claims brought by both the FTC and DOJ, as well as class action plaintiffs. Drew has also advised clients in connection with investigations abroad, including by the French Competition Authority, the Competition and Markets Authority, the Australian Competition and Consumers Commission, and the Federal Economic Competition Commission.

Drew is active in the local community, volunteering at legal clinics for victims of natural disasters such as Hurricane Sandy, supporting clinics aiding New York City’s homeless youth population, and leading Axinn’s efforts to help Ukrainian refugees apply for Temporary Protected Status.

Prior to joining Axinn, Andrew practiced in a global law firm’s antitrust and competition group. He earned his JD from the Georgetown University Law Center.
