"We recognize that every client interaction is important. It is an ongoing goal of Stoel Rives to ensure that every person at our firm consistently provides exceptional client service. This ranking is particularly valuable because it comes from surveying the clients themselves. We appreciate their confidence in us."
The top 30 firms on the BTI list received the highest overall client service scores, based on in-house counsel ranking of 17 client relationship factors. These attributes include high level legal expertise, client focus, anticipating client needs, providing value, dealing with unexpected changes, providing a breadth of legal services, and providing counsel on business issues.
