McGuireWoods is one of only nine law firms singled out for superior client service in BTI Consulting Group’s Most Recommended Law Firms report, based on feedback from corporate counsel.
In the report — covered in a Dec. 1, 2022, Law360 article — BTI said the exclusive group of firms received more unprompted recommendations from in-house leaders than all others. The findings are based on 340 interviews with corporate counsel at companies with $700 million or more in revenue.
“These firms exceed client expectations consistently and demonstrate deep business understanding,” the BTI report stated. Superior client service is the leading driver of law firm recommendations by corporate counsel, according to BTI, with 70% citing it as the reason behind an unsolicited recommendation.
“Every recommendation a trusted peer offers is a personal endorsement,” the BTI report declared. “It stands behind the type of provider — the commitment, service, quality, and demeanor — you are willing to entrust to a peer — from whom they would expect the same.”
BTI’s surveys of corporate counsel consistently rate McGuireWoods as a leading law firm. The firm has been recognized 16 times on BTI’s Client Service A-Team, the gold standard for measuring client service excellence. The firm recently was lauded as a powerhouse for commercial and class action litigation in “BTI Litigation Outlook 2023: Litigation Spending in the Uncertain Economy and Beyond.”
“We are proud to earn our clients’ endorsement as a leading law firm,” said J. Tracy Walker IV, McGuireWoods’ managing partner. “We strive to anticipate their business needs and we are grateful for the confidence they place in us.”
