About me

Andrew M. Paxton concentrates his practice in business law, real estate and taxation with a
particular focus on intellectual property, technology and emerging business
matters.  Andrew thrives in working with
start-ups and real estate settlements/transactions because he most enjoys
sitting down at the table and just “getting things done,” in his own
words.  He enjoys the energy and passion
that drive entrepreneurs to innovation. 
In short, he is an idea man. 


Andrew counsels
clients on some of their most important investments, such as real
property.  But he also feels it is
important to make them aware of more intangible assets that they may overlook –
their ideas, creative products and intellectual property.  He helps business owners to understand not
only the value of these assets, but how to protect and preserve them.  His experience in trademark and copyright
prosecution includes clearing, registering and maintaining trademarks and
copyrights through the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. And he works closely
with other attorneys at CGA in our business and litigation departments to
defend his clients intellectual property rights.


While attending York College,
Andrew served all four years in student government and was elected president of
his Senior Class. Andrew earned departmental honors in Political Science and
was awarded the William Kain Good Citizenship award for his service to the
College and community. Andrew currently serves as President of the York College
Alumni Board of Directors.  Andrew's
previous legal experience includes work at the Pennsylvania Securities
Commission in their Enforcement and Compliance Division in Harrisburg, PA
and an internship with the Pennsylvania Public Utilities Commission.
