Stephen Muhich Named 2014 BTI Client Service All-Star

Dykema Lawyer is One of Just 330 Attorneys—and 49 Employment Lawyers—Nationwide to Earn Distinction

April 2, 2014

Stephen S. Muhich, Grand Rapids-based member whose practice focuses on employment litigation and general commercial litigation, has been announced as a 2014 BTI Client Service All-Star, an honor accorded to just 330 lawyers in the U.S. As reported in Employment Law360, Muhich is also one of just 49 employment lawyers nationwide to receive this honor.

In its analysis of this year’s Client Service All-Star list, BTI identifies six factors as key drivers to being viewed by clients as a top-tier provider of client service:

  1. Client Focus 
  2. Innovative Thought Leader
  3. Exceptional Understanding of the Client’s Business
  4. Legal Skills
  5. Outsized Value
  6. Outstanding Results

The Client Service All-Star designation emerges from BTI Consulting Group’s annual survey of corporate counsel at the world’s largest organizations. This year’s survey, the 13th year BTI has conducted this comprehensive research effort, was based on in-depth interviews with nearly 300 corporate counsel from Global 500, Fortune 1000 and top-spending organizations. Almost half of survey participants are Chief Legal Officers and General Counsel; the remainder are direct reports to General Counsel.

Respondents were asked to identify—unprompted—those attorneys who drive superior client relationships. The quality and depth of those replies determined which lawyers earned Client Service All-Star status.
