Spencer Fane LLP is pleased to announce Dean Smith has joined the Litigation and Dispute Resolution practice as an associate in the firm’s Dallas office.
Smith’s practice will focus on all types of complex commercial litigation, collaborating with other attorneys to provide effective and efficient advocacy for clients before mediators, arbitration panels, judges and juries. He understands the importance of aligning risk-mitigation strategies and tactical decisions with each client’s business perspective and specific goals.
Prior to entering private practice, Smith gained valuable legal experience through multiple internships and clerkships.
“While our attorneys have a proven track record of trial work, we understand that for our business clients, the best wins often come before litigation ever has a chance to begin,” said Jason Cross, Office Managing Partner for Spencer Fane in Dallas. “To achieve the most beneficial outcomes, in or outside of the courtroom, Spencer Fane continues to seek out qualified, talented attorneys who fit with our unique, established culture in the markets where we have identified a need. The addition of Dean speaks to our continued commitment to high levels of responsive client service.”
Smith completed his undergraduate studies in business administration and management at Texas A&M University and earned his Juris Doctor from Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law.
