Milone. “This prestigious ranking demonstrates how deeply our client service efforts resonate among those we serve across a broad array of industries and geographies.”
The BTI Client Service A-Team rankings are based on interviews with nearly 300 corporate counsel at Global 500 and Fortune 1000 organizations spanning more than 15 industries. Law firms’ client services performance is segmented into 17 categories among which include client focus, commitment to help, understanding of the client’s business, legal skills and innovative approach.
