BTI Recognizes Four Baker & McKenzie Partners As Client Service All Stars

10 February 2012
Chicago, USA, February 10, 2011 – Four Baker & McKenzie partners based in the United States were recently recognized by BTI Consulting as being “Client Service All Stars” as nominated by in-house counsel. 

Partners Roger Bivans, Alan Harvey, John Murphy and Craig Roeder were each recognized by BTI as among those lawyers who “drive superior client relationships” and “top the charts in client service excellence.”  Baker & McKenzie was one of only five firms with four attorneys recognized in the report. 

BTI, the leading provider of strategic market research to law firms, developed its 2012 All Stars ranking based on candid, unprompted feedback gathered from interviews with more than 240 corporate counsel.

Michael B. Rynowecer, President of BTI Consulting Group, said in a statement, “Baker & McKenzie is home to four BTI Client Service All-Stars this year. This performance demonstrates that each of the attorneys was able to use rising client expectations as a rallying cry to deliver superior client service.” 

Mr. Bivans is a seasoned corporate and securities lawyer representing a number of public companies in capital formation, mergers and acquisitions and other strategic transactions, as well as with respect to securities regulation and corporate governance matters.  Based in Dallas, he regularly represents clients with respect to U.S. and global securities offerings and complex mergers and acquisitions in a variety of industries and is a member of the Firm's North America Private Equity Steering Committee.

Mr. Harvey is a partner in the Firm’s Dallas office and focuses on public and private securities offerings, mergers and acquisitions and corporate governance.  A member of Baker & McKenzie's Executive Committee, he also chairs the Firm's Professional Responsibility and Practice Committee and the North America Financial Management Committee.

Mr. Murphy advises and represents clients in connection with domestic and international business disputes involving corporate fiduciaries. Based in Chicago, he regularly appears on behalf of US-based and non US-based businesses in federal and state trial and appellate courts throughout the United States, as well as in domestic and international arbitrations.

Mr. Roeder advises clients in a broad range of industries on domestic and cross-border merger and acquisition transactions, including public company mergers and tender offers, joint ventures and strategic alliance arrangements, public and private securities offerings, securities law compliance and corporate governance, and other corporate transactional matters.  He is the practice group leader for the Corporate and Securities Practice Group in Chicago.
