Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel ranks in the top 25 percent of law firms with the best client relationships, according to an independent study by BTI Consulting Group. The firm’s strong client relationships within the manufacturing and consumer goods spaces position Chambliss in the upper tier of law firms across the nation.
The study analyzes more than 500 interviews with corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 and other large organizations, including more than 15 industry sectors. Driven by candid feedback from leading corporate counsel, BTI’s analysis quantifies interviews to determine which law firms have the strongest relationships with their clients.
“We strive each day to cultivate strong partnerships with our clients and to provide the most valuable service possible,” said Mike St. Charles, managing shareholder of Chambliss. “To have those efforts reciprocated with a recognition like this is rewarding for the entire firm.”
Chambliss’ William P. Aiken, Richard W. Bethea and William H. Pickering were also recently honored by BTI as Client Service All-Stars. Aiken, Bethea and Pickering were part of a select group named by BTI as Client Service MVPs—lawyers who have received All-Star recognition for two or more consecutive years. The firm was also named to BTI’s annual Client Service A-Team for the fourth consecutive year.
