February 17, 2015 -- Locke Lord LLP Partners Don Glendenning (Dallas) and Rory Radding (New York) have 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. Radding was also named an MVP All-Star for the second year in a row.
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. Corporate counsel noted six key factors in driving exceptional client service: superior client focus, innovative thought leadership, unmatched business understanding, legal skills, outsized value and outstanding results.
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."
A member of Locke Lord's Intellectual Property group and former head of the predecessor firm’s ITC practice, Radding has litigated diverse patent, trademark, copyright, and trade secret cases, acting for both plaintiffs and defendants on issues involving – among other items – LED lighting and lighting systems, plastic manufacture, electrochemical devices, ring laser gyroscopes, avionics, medical devices, communications, and pharmaceuticals. He also is well known for developing global IP strategies. He has been recognized in The International Who's Who of Business Lawyers, The International Who’s Who of Information Technology Lawyers, The Who's Who Legal: Technology Media & Telecommunications Lawyers, New York Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers in America. Radding serves on the board of directors of the International Technology Law Association (ITechLaw), where he previously was chair of the IP Committee for three years.
