On a late June morning, Dentons’ global chairman Joe Andrew found himself pulling out of a Super 8 motel. Wind shear and microbursts had caused his flight into Denver the previous day to be rerouted to Cheyenne, Wyoming, and after a missed connection and a motel stay courtesy of United Airlines, he was on his way to a panel pitch.

As one of two leaders of the largest law firm in the world, Andrew is often on the road, scoring more frequent flier miles than anyone else at Dentons. Part of that travel is checking in on the firm’s many outposts.
