Joe Andrew is the Global Chair of Dentons. An accomplished and highly regarded corporate lawyer, Joe may be best known for his role as Chairman of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) in the US from 1999-2001. In January 1999, while Joe was serving as the Indiana state Democratic chair, President Bill Clinton, Vice President Al Gore and the Democratic leadership in the US Congress asked Joe to chair the DNC. He was elected in February 1999 and served until February 2001. Joe was one of the youngest national chairs in the nearly 200-year history of the DNC and is widely recognized as one of the most successful. He brought the party out of debt, raised nearly a quarter-billion dollars, hired and managed the most diverse staff in the history of the party and successfully served as CEO of an organization with thousands of employees on Election Day. For more than 20 years, Joe has practiced corporate law, focusing on mergers and acquisitions of regulated companies. In addition, because he served as chair of the DNC, Joe is well-suited to his role as an advisor to companies and organizations on the policy issues associated with large-scale transactions. Joe is a graduate of Wayne High School in Fort Wayne, Indiana; Yale University, where he was a Scholar of the House; and Yale Law School. He clerked on the US Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. Joe is married to former US Ambassador Anne Slaughter Andrew.
