Chambliss Attorneys Named 2012 BTI Client Service All-Stars
Feb. 7, 2012
Three Chambliss attorneys – William P. Aiken, Anthony A. "Bud" Jackson, and William H. Pickering – have been named 2012 BTI Client Service All-Stars by BTI Consulting Group. BTI is the leading provider of strategic market research of law firms and professional services firms.
Aiken, Jackson and Pickering are among only 272 lawyers selected for this honor nationwide. Chambliss also ranks as a firm alongside an elite group of 24 out of 169 nationwide firms with three or more BTI Client Service All-Stars. This is the second year in a row that Jackson and Pickering have received this award, an honor that only 21 attorneys received. Aiken was notably among only three other attorneys nationwide that were nominated by two separate corporate counsels, which earned him the designation of Super All-Star by BTI.
“The reason this designation is profoundly important is because it is based on client feedback that is unprompted even by firm name,” said Michael Rynowecer, BTI President. All-Stars are nominated exclusively by corporate counsel with Fortune 1000 companies and other large corporations. Attorneys are selected for their exceptional commitment to client service, considering the lawyer’s client focus, understanding of the client's businesses, outstanding results, outsized value and legal skills.
Mr. Aiken was recognized by BTI for his work in business. He represents clients from a variety of business sectors and focuses his practice in the areas of commercial and business transactions, manufacturing law, automotive law, acquisitions, corporate and securities law, and health care.
Mr. Jackson was recognized by BTI for his work in complex litigation. He represents commercial clients, engaging in business litigation, product liability and media law. He has had numerous trials and arbitrations throughout the United States and in Canada.
Mr. Pickering was recognized by BTI for his work in complex litigation. He is labor counsel for several of the area’s largest manufacturers and has been lead counsel in complex business and employment litigation in Tennessee, Georgia and a number of other states. He is a former President of the Chattanooga Bar Association.
