BakerHostetler One of Only Three Firms Named "Best at Collaboration"

Press Releases / August 14, 2017

CLEVELAND – Aug. 14, 2017 – In a BTI Consulting Group report released this week, the firm was named one of only three firms in the country identified as “Best at Collaboration” by top legal decision-makers. The recognition is affirmation that clients recognize BakerHostetler’s commitment to providing superior client service seamlessly across the firm.

“We’re gratified that our clients view us this way,” said Chief Marketing Officer Dave Southern. “Our lawyers are always focused on our clients’ needs – which enables them to collaborate in ways that are most valuable to our clients. I believe there is no more powerful organizing principle than our commitment to understanding and fulfilling our clients’ needs to ensure collaboration across practice groups and teams.”

According to the BTI study, “collaborative law firms show deep understanding of client needs across the team, are up to speed on all issues and are all focused on the same overriding objective.” The study also found that collaborative firms have more access to new work, with collaborative firms delivering 3.2 practices to their clients, compared with only 1.8 for the average law firm.

Clients told BTI that law firms that show collaborative skills stand apart from all the others. In contrast, BTI found that 50 percent of top legal decision-makers see lack of collaboration as a law firm’s biggest weakness, limiting the work given to these firms.
