McDermott Recognized Among the Top 24 Law Firms for Superior Client Service


CHICAGO AND NEW YORK (June 29, 2016) – BTI Consulting has named McDermott Will & Emery one of the nation’s top 24 law firms in its new report: BTI Power Rankings: The Law Firms with the Best Client Relationships.

McDermott was ranked number 19 among this exclusive group of law firms recognized for having superior client relationships.

BTI Power Rankings 2016, “is the only law firm client relationship ranking based solely on objective feedback from top legal decision makers,” according to the company.

Legal decision makers at the world’s leading organizations ranked more than 500 law firms in 16 industries based on the strength of their client relationships. “These are the law firms clients name as their core, go-to firms, the firms they recommend most to their peers, and those prized firms who lay claim to both: Clientopia,” or what BTI judges to be ideal state of a client relationship. A client who considers a law firm as both their leading primary provider and the first firm they recommend to other legal decision makers has found Clientopia, according to BTI.

“Exceptional client service and a keen focus on the client relationship have always been important hallmarks of McDermott,” said Firm co-chair Jeffrey E. Stone. “We are enormously pleased to be recognized for our success in putting the client front and center in all of our work.”

“It is real honor to know that our clients recognize us and hold us in such high esteem,” added Peter J. Sacripanti, co-chair of McDermott Will & Emery. “In today’s fiercely competitive marketplace, such strong attorney-client relationships are rare. We work every day to continue to earn the trust of our clients and we are grateful to them for naming McDermott among their top law firms.”
