Firm is One of Only 24 Named to the “BTI Power Elite,”
NEW YORK – September 29, 2005 – LAWFUEL – The Law News Network – A new survey ranks Holland & Knight LLP as one of the nation’s “BTI Power Elite” – a select group of two dozen law firms rated by America’s Fortune 1000 companies as their primary, recommended, “go-to” and “bet the company” firms. Holland & Knight ranks 11th among more than 300 top law firms in the country for outstanding client satisfaction and a premier client recommendation rate, according to BTI Consulting Group, Inc.
The survey, BTI Power Rankings: The BTI Client Relationship Scorecard, was independently compiled through interviews with 329 corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 organizations, large privately-held companies and major financial services firms. The interviews focused on the market perspective of the relationships clients have with outside law firms by measuring indicators such as client recommendations and satisfaction, short lists, go-to and primary relationships.
Holland & Knight scored especially high in the categories of exceeding expectations, “bet the company” and outstanding client satisfaction, and is named as a “predominant recommended” firm. The firm also is included on clients’ short lists in numerous industries, including banking, health care, high tech, hospitality, industrial manufacturing, manufacturing, retail and wholesale trade.
“Large clients are quick to delineate the law firms they see as primary, recommended, go-to and bet the company,” said Michael B. Rynowecer, BTI President. “Only 24 law firms click on all these cylinders with clients and some are close.”
“We are pleased to be recognized for our commitment to establishing successful, strong relationships with clients,” said Howell W. Melton, Jr., Holland & Knight Managing Partner. “Our ongoing focus is the delivery of exceptional client service, and the enthusiastic recommendations and vote of confidence by our clients is very satisfying.”
