Top clients single out 565 attorneys delivering the absolute best client service — standing above all others. These are the BTI Client Service All-Stars 2022.

Corporate legal decision makers single out each BTI Client Service All-Star — by name and in an unprompted manner. No attorney or firm can self-nominate, self-refer, nor pay to be included among these elite attorneys. Clients have the final — and only — say.

This year’s BTI Client Service All-Stars lineup is robust. We see return performances as well as new All-Stars who make their debut. They are all bound by a single theme — the ability to stand above the rest in client service.

BTI’s 21st annual BTI Client Service All-Stars include some new records.

2 attorneys are nominated by 6 clients each:
Andrew Serwin, Partner, DLA Piper
Lisa Sotto, Partner, Chair of the Global Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice, Hunton Andrews Kurth
