Andrew J. Giorgione

Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC

Andrew Giorgione assists clients with governmental relations, gaming, public-private partnerships and municipal law and finance. He co-chairs both the firm’s gaming and public-private partnership groups. He has represented both public and private entities providing legal and government affairs representation in Public-Private Partnership (P3) transactions throughout the Mid-Atlantic Region. For example:

  • Represented several private entities in Pennsylvania regarding the long-term lease of a public water system and before the Pennsylvania P3 Board on transportation and telecommunication projects in various stages of the procurement process
  • Assisted with the Tax Increment Financing and public investment in the Chrin Interchange in the Lehigh Valley. The $30+ million project will assist Chrin in the development of the surrounding 800 acres of land, which will create thousands of jobs and result in millions in new local and state tax revenue. Buchanan has provided financing, real estate and lobbying services to the Chrin Company.
  • Represented the Pennsylvania Credit Union Association in several pieces of legislation, including amendments to modernize the Credit Union Code, which had not been amended in several decades
  • Represented the private operators of a port, played an instrumental role in the representation of an international investment bank for the long-term lease of parking assets, and assisted in the representation of the public owner for the long-term lease of its parking assets

In a recent project, Andrew lead a team of firm lawyers serving as Pennsylvania counsel for Pinnacle Entertainment, Inc. (NYSE-PNK) in acquiring The Meadows Casino in Washington, PA. The firm provided regulatory, corporate, financial, real estate and labor advice and counsel to Pinnacle during the transaction.

Andrew worked directly on regulatory approvals for Pinnacle with the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, the State Horse Racing Commission and the Liquor Control Board to ensure seamless transition to and operation of the casino and racetrack by Pinnacle and its subsidiary companies.

Andrew has represented numerous public and private (profit and non-profit) clients in obtaining grants, loans and approvals from the state. A former acting city solicitor for the City of Harrisburg, Andrew was responsible for supervising and representing the city in many actions in federal and state court and administrative forums. During his tenure with the city, from 1992 through 1995, Andrew served as solicitor and chief legal advisor to the mayor, City Council and various boards and commissions.

In most projects, Andrew assists with all phases of the transaction, from negotiating and drafting of documents for the pre-bid and bid phases of the transaction, to negotiating and drafting concession lease agreements and operating agreements.

He assists in all “behind-the-scenes” work related to the project, including advising the client with respect to transaction form and timelines; negotiating and drafting agreements with financial advisors, infrastructure analysts and third-party vendors; and addressing related bidding issues and the continued preparation of the necessary agreements to close the transaction.

Clients find Andrew’s counsel to be both responsive and practical. And because he understands and has access to all of the firm’s legal assets in many disciplines, Andrew is adept at building teams with the right experience to handle any client need. Somehow, this multidisciplinary approach to transactions seems to go well with one of Andrew’s favorite out-of-office pursuits: cross-fit training.
