Houston Complex Commercial Litigation Boutique AZA Named Among Top Law Firms for Client Service by BTI
January 12, 2012
HOUSTON – The Houston complex commercial litigation and intellectual property firm Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C. (AZA) is pleased to announce the firm’s selection to The BTI Client Service A-Team 2012, a ranking of law firms based on interviews with corporate counsel from across the United States.
The BTI Client Service A-Team 2012: The Survey of Law Firm Client Service Performance “evaluates individual law firm performance through the eyes of the client” and is developed from more than 240 one-on-one interviews with corporate counsel. Nationwide, only a select number of law firms that service Fortune 1000 companies were chosen based on superior client relationships. The BTI Consulting group is a 20-year-old Massachusetts-based polling and analysis firm.
“AZA prides itself on answering our clients’ needs in crisis and over the long haul. It’s gratifying to see that we’re doing it well,” says John Zavitsanos, a founding partner of AZA. “BTI’s national polling of general counsel has previously found that we are among only 32 firms in the nation dubbed ‘awesome opponents’ in court. We are pleased that our firm again has been named as one of the best by the corporate counsel we serve.”
Many of the law firms named in BTI’s surveys are much larger than the AZA boutique. The factors BTI considered in placing AZA on the Client Service A-Team include client focus, understanding the client’s business, providing value for the dollar, keeping the client informed, legal skills, dealing with unexpected changes, meeting scope and budget, anticipating client needs and providing innovative approaches.
