February 7, 2012
Houston, Texas

(Houston, TX)—Andrews Kurth is proud to announce that partners Jeff Dodd and Dean Harvey have been elected 2012 BTI Client Service All-Stars by The BTI Consulting Group.

272 individual attorneys from 169 law firms were nominated by clients to The BTI Client Service All-Star Team for Law Firms 2012. These BTI Client Service All-Stars are identified solely and exclusively by corporate counsel and are considered the leaders of client service excellence.

Jeff Dodd has extensive experience in a variety of domestic and international intellectual property and information transactions. He represents clients in the planning, design and implementation of electronic commerce strategies and arrangements, domestic and international (including those relating to business-to-business exchanges, co-branding, hosting, development, and other similar activities), electronic data interchange arrangements, and electronic trading transactions and activities. Jeff is also co-author of Modern Licensing Law, the leading treatise on licensing.

Dean Harvey’s practice focuses on technology and business process-related commercial transactions, such as outsourcing and licensing arrangements. In addition, he assists clients in acquiring and developing intellectual property, software and other technology. He regularly advises clients on topics such as cloud computing, mobile applications, and data privacy and security. Before practicing law, Dean worked in the software industry for ten years.


BTI’s analysis for The BTI Client Service All-Star Team for Law Firms 2012 draws on candid feedback from corporate counsel at the world’s largest organizations. BTI asks General Counsel and their direct reports to delineate, unprompted, the attorneys who drive superior client relationships. These in-depth telephone interviews determine precisely which attorneys top the charts in client service excellence.

Inclusion in this exclusive report is driven solely by direct feedback from corporate counsel. Law firms and their attorneys have no influence on these rankings.
