BTI Consulting Group Recognizes Chambliss Law Firm Nationally For Collaboration

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Corporate counsel has recognized Chambliss, Bahner & Stophel, P.C. for leading collaboration, according to BTI's Law Firms with the Best Collaboration national report. The Chattanooga-based law firm is one of 42 firms recognized nationwide by top legal decision makers. 

"Our primary focus is to help our clients succeed and grow," said Mike St. Charles, managing shareholder of Chambliss. "Today's client has a variety of business and legal needs. Our practice groups emphasize working with our clients through effective communication to provide tailored solutions addressing their needs. We are delighted to be recognized by corporate counsel for the impact collaboration has within our firm and among our clients." 

Corporate counsel were unprompted when selecting the top firms showcasing collaborative skills. The BTI Consulting Group’s report said, "Clients hesitate to give more than one or two matters to a firm whose attorneys don’t collaborate on an ongoing basis… Clients say collaborative law firms show deep understanding of client needs across the team, are up to speed on all the issues whenever an attorney joins the team, and are all focused on the same overriding objective." 

The report also includes the Seven Rules of Collaboration, a set of guidelines the BTI Consulting Group says will virtually double the practices a law firm delivers to clients.

Deal With The Graffiti Vandals

I travel to other neat old cities and don't see nearly the graffiti vandalism as in Chattanooga. Why do we allow one or two or three repeat vandals to mar our venerable Walnut Street Bridge, the pillars to the Holmberg Bridge, the remodeled Chief John Ross Market Street Bridge, the walls along our multi-million-dollar Riverwalk, our sidewalks, street signs and our old limestone ...
