The “All-Star” designation is reserved for attorneys who stand out with corporate counsel for providing top client service. Clients recognize “All-Stars” as those who demonstrate superior client focus because they are highly engaged and make time to invest in clients, are savvy and know their way around to get things done, are clear and concise, and are always looking forward and planning for the next steps before clients ever ask. Only 475 attorneys and 181 firms were selected for this recognition in 2020.
