For the fifth year in a row, attorney Andy Radding has been named to The Best Lawyers in America’s guide for his proven experience in white collar criminal defense.
“I appreciate Best Lawyers again honoring my longstanding commitment to my clients and my work ensuring they receive the highest caliber legal services,” Andy said.
Andy is among the Baltimore region’s most prominent complex litigation attorneys. Over the past five decades, his litigation work has spanned a variety of practice areas including white-collar criminal defense, family law, intellectual property, estates, and business disputes. He has expanded his focus on complex disputes to provide legal counsel to professional service providers in licensing and ethics disputes.
Andy’s extensive, varied experience has earned him a reputation of being a fierce advocate for his clients. In one case, he helped a team of attorneys win a settlement of $1.1 billion as lead local counsel in a class action lawsuit against Royal Ahold, an international corporation, in a securities class action case – one of the largest such settlements in history.
Andy is also a distinguished member of the local legal community, having served as the President of the Bar Association of Baltimore City, Baltimore Bar Foundation, and Baltimore Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. He also founded and chaired the U.S. Attorney’s Alumni Society of Maryland’s Steering Committee for 35 years and was president of the Simon E. Sobeloff Law Society. Andy previously served as a committee or board member for various other influential legal associations – including the Maryland State Bar Association and the American Bar Association – and was appointed by the Governor of Maryland to the Board of Trustees of the State Office of the Public Defender, where he has served since 2016. For 20 years, Andy taught the next generation of attorneys as an adjunct faculty member of the University of Baltimore School of Law.
