Frost Brown Todd has been named one of eight “standout” law firms in IP litigation in the Litigation Outlook 2011 report published by Law360 and conducted by The BTI Consulting Group.
According to BTI’s report – for which 240 corporate counsel, including 18% of the Fortune 100, were surveyed – standout firms have “made an indelible mark on clients. These firms have positioned themselves with the world’s most demanding clients as the ones corporate counsel would most like to have by their side in head-to-head competition. In essence, they are the best players in the game.”
“We believe this ranking is the result of our continuing efforts to provide superior service at a competitive cost, and to act as a partner with in-house counsel to bring innovative solutions to their most challenging problems,” said John R. Crockett III, Chairman of the Firm.
In an article published in Law360 the president of BTI Consulting, Michael Rynowecer outlined the criteria for the award when he said that “emphasis on client service, paired with some form of innovation, helped these firms rise to the top.”
