21 November 2011
, one of the UK’s leading legal publications, recently released the results of its annual client satisfaction survey of best legal advisers. Squire Sanders is ranked at the top of the UK national legal adviser category for the second consecutive year. The survey, now in its eighth year, is based on responses from more than 1,000 senior in-house lawyers and finance directors from companies operating in the UK including 78 FTSE 100 companies.
Clients graded firms on six criteria: cost/billing practices; service delivery and responsiveness; use of IT and knowledge management; personal/partner relationships; and the quality of commercial and legal advice. Squire Sanders featured highly in each of the performance categories.
Commenting on the survey, Peter Crossley, Squire Sanders’ managing partner for Europe, said: “We are extremely pleased with the results of the Legal Week survey. Client-centric values have always been part of the make-up of the firm, indeed our combinations were founded on a shared culture of working in partnership with our clients. The results show that we are continuing to make good progress in providing cost-effective quality legal advice that our clients value – and now on a global scale.”
