SBW Named “Go To” Firm in National Survey on Professional Services Litigation

September 5, 2017

Savitt Bruce & Willey has been named a “core, go-to firm” for professional services litigation in a survey of more than 950 top legal decision makers at the world’s leading organizations.

The survey, BTI Industry Power Rankings 2017: The Law Firms with the Best Client Relationships in 18 Industries, is in its 16th year. Results are based on in-depth telephone interviews each year with corporate counsel and executives with control over outside firm retention. BTI says it relies on “candid, direct feedback from your clients and your market to delineate key market trends and define the most intricate nuances of complex, large-scale professional services relationships.” The survey ranks more than 500 law firms based on the strength of their client relationships.

“As a regional boutique firm, we appreciate this recognition,” said Jim Savitt, an SBW partner and co-founder. No attorney can self-nominate, self-refer or asked to be named by BTI’s interviewers in its survey; the only way to be recognized is to be identified by the clients. “Unsolicited praise from some of our most litigation-savvy clients about our work in important cases, often against the Am Law firms, means something to us”, Savitt said.

Based on Boston and founded in 1989, BTI performs research in 42 countries and improves performance for clients on 5 continents. They benchmark how Fortune 1000 companies buy, how professional services firms sell, and how to manage service provider performance. Through more than 14,000 independent interviews with C-level executives and systematic analysis, BTI has helped professionals boost client service for 25 years.
