June 24, 2019
The BTI Consulting Group (BTI) has named Nexsen Pruet to their “BTI Brand Elite 2019: Client Perceptions of the Best-Branded Law Firms” list.
Out of 650 law firms serving large clients, Nexsen Pruet ranks at 231, up from 283 the previous year.
Drawing on nearly 700 in-depth interviews with corporate council at the world’s largest organizations, the list names the firms with the best brand among general counsel and legal decision makers.
According to BTI:
"Each and every law firm included in BTI Brand Elite 2019: Client Perceptions of the Best-Branded Law Firms is the direct result of a specific unprompted client citation. We did not present clients with any law firms, by name, for the purpose of this analysis."
The critical aspects included in BTI’s definition of law firm brand are the direct result of more than 5,800 interviews with buyers of legal services over the past 15 years. Corporate counsel isolated 9 key brand-related elements driving their decision to select, consider and hire a particular law firm. These are:
- Client Experience
- Recommended: Firm is recommended first to peers and colleagues without prompting
- Short-Listed: Firm is considered first for hiring in new assignments
- Premium Worthy
