DLA Piper is named a technology ‘powerhouse’ by BTI Consulting Group
DLA Piper has been recognised as a technology ‘powerhouse’ by the BTI Consulting Group in its newly published 2014 BTI Client Relationship Scorecard.
BTI also ranked DLA Piper number 20 out of 650 law firms serving large clients for having the best client relationships, placing the firm on the ‘Power Elite’ list.
Between March and July 2013, BTI conducted interviews with 300 corporate counsel at large and Fortune 1000 companies about what law firm activities drive superior client relationships. BTI’s valuations were based on their feedback on legal spending and key issues they are facing, among other areas.
