Corporate counsel rank Jones Day number 1 with the absolute best client relationships in the just-released BTI Client Relationship Scorecard 2014: Ranking Law Firm Client Relationships. Clients are the only true judge of strength for every law firm relationship, and the top 23 firms—the BTI Power Elite—turn clients into powerful allies and use superior relationships as a competitive advantage.
Morgan Lewis, Skadden, Kirkland & Ellis and Littler Mendelson round out the top five firms with the best client relationships. Both Jackson Lewis and Jenner & Block made moves to land at the top of the ranks, improving in both their primary relationships and client recommendations since the report was last published in 2009. Stalwarts Latham & Watkins, McGuireWoods, Faegre Baker Daniels and Sidley Austin maintain their strength of client relationships and appear once again on the BTI Power Elite.
