BakerHostetler Recognized for Having "Standout Associates"

Press Releases / August 10, 2017

CLEVELAND – Aug. 10, 2017 – BakerHostetler is one of 38 law firms with “Standout Associates,” according to a new report from BTI Consulting Group. BTI interviewed 300 corporate counsel and identified eight firms as having the “Best Associates” and another 38 as having “Standout Associates.”

According to BTI’s president Michael Rynowecer, “Clients make a mental note of the firms who will put their associates on the front lines and make them visible.”

“We believe it’s important to give our associates the opportunity to meet face-to-face with clients,” said BakerHostetler Professional Development Partner Ron Okada. “Much of their success will depend not only on their skills as attorneys, but also how they communicate with clients.”

Rynowecer notes that clients enjoy meeting associates as much as associates appreciate clients’ advice. “Clients like to talk to associates and offer bits of advice on being an attorney, improving their work, and to share insight on what it’s like to be a client or about the nature of meetings,” he said. “They like to mentor and help. And, associates love the exposure and advice.”
