Andrews Kurth Partner Jerry L. Beane Recognized Among Dallas' Top Business Defense Attorneys

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - June 17, 2008) - Andrews Kurth LLP partner, Jerry L. Beane, is being recognized as one of Dallas' most formidable and accomplished business defense lawyers in "The Defenders," a special publication of the Dallas Business Journal highlighting 15 local attorneys who companies turn to in high-stakes litigation.

"It is incredibly gratifying to be recognized alongside such a fine group of attorneys," says Beane, a partner in Andrews Kurth's litigation section. "I am humbled to be honored for the work I have done on behalf of clients."

To determine its third annual listing of "The Defenders," published June 13, 2008, reporters and editors from the Dallas Business Journal interviewed general counsels, judges and other attorneys across the city to identify the "go to" attorneys for high-stakes legal matters.

"It is so fitting for Jerry to be honored in such a way by his colleagues," says Andrews Kurth Dallas Office Managing Partner Mark Solomon. "He is very unassuming about any accolades. The firm is extremely proud of Jerry and this well-deserved recognition."

He recently was recognized by Texas Lawyer newspaper as one of the state's "Go-To" lawyers for antitrust issues, and was profiled in the Chambers USA guide to America's Leading Lawyers for Business.
