Stoll Keenon Ogden PLLC receives Client Service A-Team accolades
After more than 300 interviews with corporate counsel of Fortune 1000 companies and large organizations, BTI has named Stoll Keenon Ogden attorneys Rick Griffith and Kendrick Riggs to its 330-member Client Service All-Star roster for 2014. They are two of three attorneys in Kentucky to receive this distinction, and Riggs is also one of 15 lawyers nationwide to be recognized three or more consecutive years as a Client Service All-Star.
The honor is achieved solely on outside counsel’s keen understanding of business issues, thought-leading approaches to legal services and total commitment to client needs. Griffith, who received the All-Star distinction for the first time, is a member of the board and serves as chair of the firm’s Labor, Employment & Employee Benefits practice. Riggs chairs the firm’s Utility and Energy practice and is vice chair of the firm’s board of directors.
“Every lawyer in our firm strives to deliver the quality of service and level of commitment that Kendrick and Rick offer. They are both outstanding role models of true business partners and exceptional attorneys,” said SKO Managing Partner Bill Lear. “I’m convinced the leadership they exhibit has become a part of our firm’s DNA. It’s certainly a big part of why we earned our 3rd ‘Client Service A-Team’ by BTI.”
SKO is one of 336 law firms nationwide rated “Client Service A-Team” by BTI, a leading provider of strategic market research for professional firms. It is the firm’s 3rd year to receive the honor.
“The fact that these distinctions were received based only on client input is very meaningful to all of us,” said Riggs. “Nothing is more important in our work than singular dedication to their interests, and it’s humbling that client feedback has landed us in the company of peers from outstanding firms across the country.”
The BTI Client Service A-Team is the only law firm ranking based entirely on independent, unbiased feedback from clients – no law firm influences the results, submits nominations or provides client names.
