Thornton Grout Finnigan (TGF) announced that Andrew Hanrahan has joined the firm as an associate.

With eight years of prior experience practising as a U.S. attorney with the New York office of an international law firm, Hanrahan’s work has focused on complex commercial litigation, including bankruptcy/insolvency litigation, securities class actions, internal investigations and mergers and acquisitions litigation.

He maintains an active pro bono practice, including previously representing indigent individuals facing federal criminal charges in the Southern District of New York, representing clients asserting housing discrimination claims before the New York City Commission on Human Rights and representing low-income tenants in housing court eviction proceedings.
