February 17, 2015 -- Locke Lord LLP Partner Don Glendenning (Dallas) has been selected for BTI Consulting Group’s “2015 Client Service All-Star Team,” a prestigious group chosen by corporate counsel in an independent study identifying lawyers who are recognized in delivering the absolute best client service.

This year, 354 lawyers around the world were cited as All-Stars -- named after nearly 320 in-depth, independent interviews with legal decision makers at the world’s leading organizations.

Glendenning is Co-Chair of Locke Lord's Corporate and Transactional Department and Managing Partner of the Firm's Dallas office. He has extensive experience in a broad range of corporate and securities matters and transactions, and regularly advises on private equity and venture capital transactions, senior and subordinated debt financings, asset and stock acquisitions, going-private transactions and divestitures, spin-offs and corporate mergers. Glendenning is listed in The Best Lawyers in America and in Chambers, which refers to him as "brilliant and one of the most client-service oriented lawyers out there."
