Miller And Martin Recognized For Excellence In Client Service

Wednesday, November 20, 2013

BTI Consulting Group announced Wednesday that Miller & Martin PLLC has been named to the BTI Client Service A-Team 2014, as being one of the law firms corporate counsel identified as delivering the absolute best client service.

The BTI Client Service A-Team rankings are based on candid feedback from nearly 300 corporate counsel at large and Fortune 1000 companies to determine precisely which law firms top the charts in client service.  By using corporate counsel’s unprompted feedback, BTI analyzes how each firm performs in 17 client service activities.

  Of the 650 core law firms BTI’s research revealed as having served large and Fortune 1000 clients, only 336 – just over half – earned a spot on the BTI Client Service A-Team 2014.

“We are honored to be one of the distinguished law firms as ranked by BTI,” said Jim Haley, chairman of the firm.  “Building strategic relationships and delivering exceptional client service is at the heart of everything we do at Miller & Martin, and it is very gratifying to be recognized by our clients for our client-service focus.”

Miller & Martin is no stranger to the BTI rankings; this is the second consecutive year Miller & Martin has made the BTI Client Service A-Team.  Earlier in 2013, the firm was recognized as one of the The BTI Brand Elite: Client Perceptions of the Best-Branded Law Firms.  Miller & Martin attorneys Shelby Grubbs and Jimmy Daniel were named as BTI Client Service All-Stars in 2011, an elite recognition that only 318 other lawyers from firms across the United States share.

The BTI Consulting Group, Inc. is a Boston-based research company and management consulting firm and a leading supplier of information to the legal services industry.

I'm Number One In A Round About Way

Roundabouts have been popping up all over Chattanooga over the past few years and for the most part have been successful.  Unfortunately there are some who just don’t get it as I have found out the hard way.    My latest instance was last week when a young woman on her cell phone almost t-boned me as she flew into the roundabout without yielding.  A near miss ...

Roy Exum: Oscar Brock’s True Passion

I don’t pay much attention to the Hamilton County School Board. Once the moon and the stars aligned behind Superintendent Rick Smith, you hear very little, if anything, from the nine-member council that oversees an annual budget of almost $400 million and employs 4,480 people. So chew this for a minute: approximately 2,000 of those people are not teachers. Yes, there are 78 principals ... (click for more)
