Andrew B. Wilson is an attorney and legislative specialist in Morris James' Health Care Industry and Government Relations Groups. Andrew works on a range of healthcare issues throughout the practice of medicine, assisting clinicians, practices, and other entities through licensing questions, regulatory compliance, and how to innovate using tools such as telehealth.
Andrew understands that clients may encounter areas of the law where the system is either out of date or didn’t account for a client’s situation. He works with those clients to see if their barriers can be overcome through legislative and regulatory change. By working directly with key officials in the executive and legislative branches to implement policy changes – guided by his experience helping make the Medical Society of Delaware and its many physician members the second most legislatively-productive group in Delaware – clients can succeed in Delaware.
After graduating with his Juris Doctor from Albany Law School in 2010 and before moving to Delaware, Andrew worked as Counsel and Policy Analyst to members of the New York State Senate. He produced legislation, committee reports, and staffed press conferences on a weekly basis, addressing time-sensitive public policy issues. He also served as Counsel to the Senate Committee on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse.
Additionally, Andrew has developed extensive knowledge of political campaigns in Delaware, working in a range of roles from volunteer to statewide Campaign Manager. He trains candidates, incumbents, and staffers on best practices, compliance, and campaign finance.
