Andy Ninh brings a deep passion for technology to his role as an Associate Legal Solutions Architect, using his wealth of knowledge and understanding of tech trends to help clients solve their legal and business problems.
A two-time award winner in Michigan State’s ReInvent Law competition with an undergraduate degree in biochemistry from the University of Florida, Andy’s interest in technology, process improvement, and legal project management makes him an ideal hybrid legal professional to tackle today’s legal and business challenges.
A J.D. from Michigan State University College of Law, Andy has worked in the startup tech world for two years. He was one of the first eight employees at TurtleCell, a startup that creates headphone cases for smart phones, where he was lead project manager and led design, branding, and social media efforts.
He returned to MSU Law to work as Innovation Counsel for the Center for Legal Services Innovation, where he received training in legal project management and Lean methodologies. He now co-organizes the Chicago Legal Innovation and Technology Meetup Group, which brings together thought leaders, technologists, and legal professionals to discuss legal technology, trends, and the future of the legal industry.
While in law school, Andy won Most Creative Business Pitch at MSU’s ReInvent Law Start-Up Competition for explaining how attorneys can use augmented-reality technology and tools, such as Google Glass, to provide on-demand legal services. This pitch led to a featured story on the Big Ten Network, a tour of the Google Glass lab and a personal Google Glass test run before the product was released.
Outside the office, Andy is a third-degree black belt in Isshin-Ryu karate and a first-degree black belt in Taekwondo, a fitness fanatic, a self-proclaimed foodie, and a fan of Chicago sports and exotic cars. A member of the New York State Bar Association, Andy enjoys traveling and discovering unique experiences and rich cultures.
