(Dallas, Texas) – Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld LLP announced today that partner J. Kenneth Menges Jr. has been named by a client to the BTI Client Service All-Star Team “for delivering truly outstanding and superior client service.” 

In preparing its exclusive client-defined list, Boston-based BTI Consulting Group, a market research, management consulting and executive education firm, surveyed corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 companies throughout the United States regarding their outside law firm relationships.  This year, only 93 attorneys from 73 law firms were named by clients to the All-Star Team. 

Mr. Menges is the partner in charge of Akin Gump’s Dallas office, as well as the manager of the corporate and securities practice group in Dallas.  He is principally engaged in offerings, mergers and acquisitions, both domestically and internationally.  He has extensive experience in the negotiation and preparation of acquisitions, public offerings, private placements, financing agreements, and partnership and employment agreements, as well as in general corporate counseling.  In addition, he has substantial experience in the financing of new ventures and in the restructuring and workout of complex financings.
