CEO and Managing Partner, Nixon Peabody
As CEO and managing partner of Nixon Peabody, Andrew Glincher ’84 heads a leading global 100 law firm employing more than 600 attorneys worldwide.
“I’m big into relationships and consensus-building and helping people be their best,” says Glincher, who envisioned a career as a solo practitioner but ended up joining a large firm as a result of his co-op experiences and network.
The appeal of managing a global law firm is in “delivering differentiating value to our clients and helping attorneys grow,” says Glincher. “The emphasis on community and collaboration at Northeastern is very similar to Nixon Peabody. That’s what separates this law school and our firm from the pack.”
On his first co-op, Andrew worked with a general practice, where he focused on corporate and real estate transactions.
Under the supervision of Judge Robert Hallisey, Andrew wrote jury instructions and participated in a wide variety of criminal and civil matters. In particular, Andrew worked with the judge on the WEEI helicopter crash case, in which a pilot and reporter were killed in 1977.
As a result of meeting Thomas Burns during his co-op with Judge Hallisey, Andrew was invited to join the summer associate program at Burns and Levinson.
As a research assistant to Professor Dan Givelber, Andrew delved into pro bono death penalty cases involving inmates in Georgia.
Corporate work related to public utilities opened Andrew’s eyes to yet another area of law.
After graduating from law school, Andrew served as an associate with Looney & Grossman before joining Peabody and Brown (now Nixon Peabody) in 1987.
