Clients point to 207 attorneys who climbed the wall of worry to deliver exceptional client service. Better than all others.

These M&A BTI Client Service All-Stars immediately were able to grasp client’s new needs (often before they did), expectations and risks. And, they set the standard for delivering the absolute best client service.

More importantly, they knew what to do — and how to communicate all this back to clients in real-time  — because top management wanted to know the strategy and the progress every step of the way.

Top legal and deal-related decision makers single out each BTI M&A Client Service All-Star attorney — by name and in an unprompted manner — as delivering the absolute best client service. No attorney or firm can self-nominate, self-refer, nor pay to be included in this report. Clients have the final — and only — say.
