WASHINGTON—The BTI Consulting Group has named Covington lawyers Andrew Smith, Jonathan Sperling, and Allan Topol to its 2018 “Client Service All-Stars” list, which recognizes “the leaders in superior client service.”

He heads the firm’s Music Industry practice and has particularly deep experience advising record companies and publishers in disputes over distribution of content through new media. He also has substantial experience handling governmental and internal investigations and advising boards on crisis management.

Mr. Topol, based in Washington, is a civil and criminal litigator, whose emphasis is on water, air, and major hazardous waste enforcement cases, as well as international environmental law and toxic torts.
