Charlotte, NC – Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein LLP is pleased to announce that BTI Consulting Group has ranked the Charlotte-based law firm among national leaders for its unparalleled client relationships. BTI’s rankings are based solely on in-depth interviews with top legal decision makers. This feedback demonstrates that clients in several industries turn to Parker Poe as their primary firm and when peers ask for recommendations.
In the “Recommended” category, BTI ranked Parker Poe as a “Leader” in the health care industry, among the top 2 percent of all law firms. The firm was also on the “Honor Roll” for recommendations in the real estate industry. In the “Core” category, Parker Poe was named a “Leader” in the banking and health care industries, as well as on the “Honor Roll” in the high-tech industry.
BTI Consulting Group is among the preeminent sources for client interviews and strategic research. For the 2017 report on industry power rankings, BTI conducted nearly 1,000 interviews with general counsel, chief legal officers and other leading decision makers from March 2015 through February 2017.
For the “Recommended” category, BTI asked clients – without suggesting names – what law firm they would recommend to peers. BTI compiled the results and found that Parker Poe was among the top 2 percent of all law firms in the health care industry. The firm was also highly recommended in the real estate industry.
With the “Core” category, the questions focused on clients’ relationships with their current law firms. Firms receiving core rankings are in coveted positions, with the greatest access to clients’ most attractive work. Parker Poe’s recognition in this category reflects the firm’s significant status for banking, health care and high-tech clients.
The report also details how clients prefer law firms that are organized around industry groups rather than practice areas: Businesses are taking a big-picture approach to their challenges and opportunities, and they want law firms to do the same. This past year, Parker Poe reorganized into industry teams to best serve its clients.
“This is the latest example of how we are responding directly to client feedback to improve the way we do business,” Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer Kristen Leis said. “We are proud of our rankings with BTI because they are based on the metric that matters most to Parker Poe: what our clients think of us.”
