Andrew J. Costa, a recent graduate of Drexel University’s Thomas R. Kline School of Law, is an associate working in the firm’s intellectual property and litigation practices. During law school, Andrew worked as a co-op student with ND Galli Law through Drexel Law’s co-op program and later as a full-time law clerk while his admission to the bar was pending. He has experience working on federal intellectual property (“IP”) litigation, including trademark, trade secrets and patent matters, as well as trademark prosecution, copyright licensing and other IP counseling matters.

Prior to law school, Andrew spent over a decade working in the performing arts and entertainment industries in Southern California and Arizona where he first encountered the importance of intellectual property protections and developed a zeal for oral advocacy and entrepreneurship. Drawing on these experiences and his experience with his family’s businesses, Andrew founded and ran a startup mobile application and gaming company from 2014 to 2017, when he decided to attend law school.

Before law school, Andrew also served as a national volunteer advocate with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society working with Congressional leaders to increase patient access and affordability of blood cancer treatments, as well as a volunteer and film producer with Walk Now! For Autism Speaks fundraising to support children with autism and their families. Andrew aspires to continue his philanthropic work through a commitment to pro bono service and by engaging in new volunteer activities, as well as becoming more active in bar associations and professional organizations.
