The Ultimate Legal Pitch: 30 Firms Named by BTI Consulting Group in Annual Survey of Top Legal Decision Makers

The Ultimate Legal Pitch: 30 Firms Named by BTI Consulting Group in Annual Survey of Top Legal Decision Makers 2

How do you know which biglaw firm makes the best pitch for new clients?

“There’s a new ranking for that,” says Michael Rynowecer of BTI Consulting Group. “These seasoned clients have seen it all before. Or at least most of it. And they can spot a great pitch in an instant.

Clients want to learn and see a path to their goals.” Rynowecer is referring to the 22nd Annual Survey of Top Legal Decision Makers, in which almost 350 corporate counsel were interviewed.

The survey identified 30 firms that not only gave the best pitches, but also met their goals for a pitch.

While presentations remain common, there are different approaches too when securing valuable corporate work for the big law firms.

For instance, one-on-one conversations, the coffee meeting in informal surroundings and other interactions are all growing in importance.

As The Mad Clientist discussed last week, clients might not announce they are considering you for new work. So – if a client or potential client calls with questions be prepared to share your best and most specific thoughts. It could be they are considering you for new work.
