On The Beat Industry News In Brief

Joe Andrew, the former chairman of the Democratic party in Indiana who later led the party’s national committee, has been named co-chairman of an international law firm.

The firm, SNR Denton, is the result of a June 9 merger between Washington, D.C.-based Sonnenschein Nath & Rosenthal LLP and United Kingdom-based Denton Wilde Sapte LLP.

With more than 1,400 lawyers in 18 countries, SNR Denton officially will launch on Sept. 30.

Andrew, a native of tiny Poe near Fort Wayne, is a senior partner within Sonnenschein’s corporate and mergers and acquisitions practices.

He earned a bachelor’s degree from Yale University in 1982 and his law degree from the same school three years later.

A stint at the Indianapolis law firm of Baker & Daniels LLP was interrupted in 1989 by then-Secretary of State Joe Hogsett, who asked Andrew to be his chief of staff. He returned to the law in 1991 as head of Bingham Summers Welsh & Spilman’s (now Bingham McHale LLP) intellectual property group.

He also was a partner at the former Johnson Smith LLP and chaired the firm’s intellectual property practice.

Andrew became chairman of the Indiana Democratic Party in 1995. Four years later, President Bill Clinton nominated him as chairman of the party’s national committee.
