“Law360, New York (February 03, 2014, 7:56 PM ET) — Nearly 100 litigators were chosen by corporate counsel as being the most client-friendly thanks to their commitment to understanding business’ needs and goals and finding the right solution to problems that can seem to have many possible answers.
The litigation specialists were among 330 lawyers nominated by their clients in the 2014 BTI Client Service All-Stars report from The BTI Consulting Group Inc.
BTI president Michael Rynowecer said the winning attorneys were recognized by their corporate counterparts for their client focus, innovation, business competency, value provided, legal skills and ability to get good results.
“What really stands out in litigation is clients are looking for flexibility and understanding,” Rynowecer said. “Clients are trying to settle more cases and manage these matters and cases before they ever get to trial.”
He said the all-star litigators have a deep understanding that many clients now want to now get rid of lawsuits instead of try them, and have the wherewithal to act accordingly. . . .
. . . litigators singled out by general counsel for stellar client service include . . . Richard Patch of Coblentz Patch Duffy & Bass LLP.
