Andrew Demetriou '76
Andrew Demetriou '76 has joined the Los Angeles office of Husch Blackwell as senior counsel. He will join the firm’s Healthcare, Life Sciences & Education industry group and its Corporate/M&A practice teams.
Demetriou is a dean of the healthcare law bar nationally and has served as a business and legal advisor to healthcare organizations for over three decades. He began his career in private practice at a boutique law firm before joining Jones Day in 1985, where he served as a partner for nearly two decades in that firm’s corporate and healthcare practice groups. He joined the partnership of Fulbright & Jaworski (now Norton Rose Fulbright) in 2004 and continued his representation of a wide range of healthcare and corporate clients. He has a long history of service in the American Bar Association, serving as chair of the Health Law Section in 2007-08 and as a member of the board of governors from 2018 to 2021. He is currently a member of the council of the ABA Fund for Justice and Education, the ABA’s charitable arm.
“I am delighted to join Husch Blackwell’s Healthcare team and to help grow the group’s profile in California and across the country,” said Demetriou. “I have many long-term friendships with lawyers there, and the group has an uncommon approach to providing counsel and advice, bringing together incredibly smart people who are also collaborative, client-focused and practical. In my experience that is a rare and very valuable combination, but Husch Blackwell’s Healthcare group has achieved it.”
