Former FEC Chairman’s Counsel Andrew Woodson Rejoins Wiley Rein

November 2015

Andrew G. Woodson, former counsel to Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman Lee E. Goodman, has joined the firm’s highly regarded Election Law & Government Ethics Practice as a partner.

Mr. Woodson, who previously served as of counsel at the firm, will advise clients in complying with state and federal campaign finance, ethics, and lobbying laws, assist clients in filing comments with the FEC and responding to enforcement proceedings, and pursue legal relief for clients when state or federal law infringes upon their First Amendment rights.

While at the FEC, Mr. Woodson advised Chairman Goodman on both policy and enforcement matters. During his chairmanship, Commissioner Goodman was an outspoken advocate of media and Internet freedom at the FEC, as well as a vocal supporter of federal, state, and local political parties.
In addition to his private practice experience and service at the FEC, Mr. Woodson served as a legislative assistant in the Office of Congressman Eric Cantor. He received his J.D. and his undergraduate degree from the University of Virginia.
