Curtis Litigation co-Chair Eliot Lauer Nominated as BTI Client Service All-Star

New York, February 17, 2011 - Eliot Lauer, co-chair of the Litigation department at Curtis Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP, has been nominated as a BTI Client Service All-Star for Law Firms 2011.

The BTI Client Service All-Stars is an elite group of attorneys nominated solely and exclusively by clients in BTI's independent study as “delivering the absolute best in client service.” Mr. Lauer is one of 318 individual attorneys from 201 unique firms selected as 2011 BTI Client Service All-Stars.

“We are honored to welcome Mr. Eliot Lauer and Curtis to this exclusive club,” said Michael B. Rynowecer, president of The BTI Consulting Group. “The only path to becoming a BTI Client Service All-Star is for corporate counsel and C-level executives to single out an attorney in an unprompted manner as part of BTI's independent research.”

BTI conducted more than 300 individual interviews with corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 and large organizations. BTI researchers probed clients on every aspect of law firm relationships, including needs and priorities, the law firms they rely on and, perhaps most importantly, the quality of service they receive. BTI does not accept law firm submissions, attorney self-nominations or law firm suggestions as to which corporate counsel are interviewed.
