Polsinelli Shughart litigation attorney Roy Bash has been selected as a 2013 Client Service All-Star and MVP by BTI Consulting Group, Inc., a firm that annually surveys in-house counsel from Fortune 1000 companies and other multibillion-dollar enterprises to identify the nation’s top attorneys whose hallmark is client service and who foster the best client-counsel relationships.

The BTI Consulting Group, a leading provider of strategic market research to law firms, noted in its annual report that “corporate counsel’s keen assessment of outside counsel separates the attorneys who deliver excellent client service from those simply delivering good client service. The BTI Client Service All-Stars set the standard for client service excellence – standing above all others in the eyes of clients.”

Of the 307 total lawyers nominated by their clients, only Bash and 42 other attorneys were selected as Client Service All-Stars. Forty-one of the attorneys, including Bash, also received MVP recognition for appearing on the list two or more years.

“The All-Star and MVP designations are a tremendous honor and the firm congratulates Roy for his national recognition. Consistently exceeding clients’ expectations, delivering quality counsel and providing outstanding client service is a hallmark of our firm,” said Polsinelli Shughart Chairman W. Russell Welsh.
Bash is a firm shareholder and chair of the Construction/Energy/Real Estate Litigation practice group. The attorney has more than 35 years of experience in the construction industry and has represented the interests of numerous constituents in the industry with an emphasis on those entities providing general contracting, CM, EPC or design-build responsibilities. Bash also has extensive experience in representing many architectural/engineering firms with design liability issues.
Bash earned his law degree from the University of Iowa in 1974 and his B.B.A degree from the same university in 1971. He is a member of the Missouri and Colorado Bar, as well as the American Bar Association.

Among his professional recognitions, Bash has consistently been ranked as a top commercial litigator in Chambers USA: America’s Leading Lawyers for Business and a Top 50 Super Lawyer. He was selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2005-2013.

Bash is an excellent source for reporters working on stories about:

• Construction industry including “green” construction issues
• Litigation and dispute resolution, including mediation
• Architectural/engineering design liability
