Three Polsinelli Attorneys Named 2017 BTI Client Service All-Stars for Superior Client Service

Russell Jones, Jr. and Steven Imber received All-Star designations from BTI Consulting Group

Three Polsinelli attorneys have been named 2017 BTI Client Service All-Stars by BTI Consulting Group. With three attorneys ranked, Polsinelli sits in the top 10 percent of all firms with attorneys in the national 319-member All-Star list.

Kansas City-based Shareholder Russell S. Jones, Jr., Litigation Department Chair, was named a BTI Client Service All-Star for the second consecutive year, and was one of only 54 attorneys nationwide to be designated as a Client Service All-Star “MVP.” Overland Park-based Shareholder Steven L. Imber and Chicago-based Shareholder Charles D. Katz also received this year’s Client Service All-Star designation by BTI.

“Our firm is proud to have three attorneys included among BTI’s Client Service All-Stars list for 2017,” said Polsinelli Chairman Russ Welsh. “Russ, Steve and Chuck earned this recognition from their clients because of their tremendous service over the years and resolute dedication to understanding their clients’ business.”

This 2017 BTI designation extends the long list of career distinctions for Jones, who is a 12-time selection for The Best Lawyers in America for commercial, antitrust, intellectual property or patent litigation. Imber and Katz are both first-time recipients of BTI’s All-Star designation. Katz has more than 27 years of experience in public finance law. Imber currently chairs the firm’s Insurance Business and Regulatory practice group.

In November, Polsinelli was ranked No. 17 among 30 elite law firms that deliver the best client service, earning recognition in every dimension of the 2017 Client Service A-Team Report by BTI Consulting Group.

The BTI Client Service recognition is based on more than 300 in-depth corporate counsel client interviews. BTI’s All-Stars cannot be nominated, but rather are singled out by legal decision makers at companies with revenues greater than $1 billion.
