Alexander Dubose Jefferson & Townsend Announces the Addition of Nationally Recognized Appellate Attorney Marcy Hogan Greer

AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Alexander Dubose Jefferson & Townsend LLP—an internationally recognized appellate boutique law firm with offices in Austin, Dallas, and Houston—today announced the addition of Marcy Hogan Greer as a partner in the firm.

"Marcy (Greer) has a nationwide reputation as a formidable legal strategist in complex litigation," Douglas W. Alexander, a founding partner of the firm, said. "Following closely behind former Texas Chief Justice Wallace B. Jefferson in joining us, Marcy further expands our footprint on the national appellate stage."

Prior to joining ADJT, Greer was a partner at Norton Rose Fulbright, formerly Fulbright & Jaworski L.L.P., in its Austin office. Prior to joining Fulbright in 1994, Greer was a law clerk for the Hon. Carolyn D. King, former Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit.

Greer is recognized for her complex trial and appellate litigation in federal and state trial and appellate courts throughout the country. She serves as a leader for legal strategy in a wide variety of class actions and mass torts. Greer was selected by Best Lawyers in America as its 2012 Austin Appellate Lawyer of the Year and is recognized by that publication in the areas of Appellate, Bet-the-Company Litigation, and Commercial Litigation. She has also been listed in Texas Super Lawyers as one of the Top 100 lawyers in the state for the past several years. She is the National Editor for the American Bar Association's best-selling book, A Practitioner's Guide to Class Actions.

Greer chaired the Texas Bar Appellate Section in 2009-2010 and spearheaded that group's pro bono program. She also served as the Lead Pro Bono Partner with Texas Appleseed on a major project for the Texas Supreme Court focused on improving the lives of foster children in Texas and was awarded the Texas Bar Association's Frank J. Scurlock Award for Outstanding Legal Services to the Poor in 2011.

Greer has deep roots in Texas, as a great-great-great granddaughter of Sam Houston, the first president of the Republic of Texas.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
