BTI is the leading provider of strategic research to the legal community. BTI Industry Power Rankings is the only law firm ranking based solely on direct and unprompted feedback from corporate counsel. BTI’s interviews focused on 18 industries and divided the results into two short lists per industry: Core Firms and Recommended Firms. Core Firms have the best opportunity to represent clients on their most important legal matters. Recommended Firms have the honor of being the unprompted response when a client is asked, “Which law firm would you recommend?” According to BTI, the average large organization utilizes 37 different law firms to help manage their legal needs, and 15 of those firms are considered “core.” Additionally, BTI’s research has found that nearly 60% of corporate legal decision makers will hire a law firm from an unprompted recommendation from a peer.
