BTI Consulting Group has selected partner Kim Eilerts as a “2015 Client Service All-Star” based on unprompted client feedback it received during its annual survey of corporate counsel at Fortune 1,000 and other large organizations.
“The attorneys in this report are the individuals clients think of — and turn to — first. Why? They service clients better than anyone and everyone,” according to BTI Consulting, which named 354 All-Stars this year.
“BTI went straight to the source ... to find out exactly which attorneys are truly influencing and changing the legal industry.”
Kim was recognized as an All-Star in “Corporate & Securities.” Kim counsels business leaders and legal professionals in acquisitions and dispositions of stock and assets, mergers, joint ventures, securities law compliance and corporate governance. She has served as lead counsel on multi-million acquisitions for companies like Bunge North America Inc., and Aegion Corp. Kim also provides advice on a wide variety of general corporate matters. In 2012, Kim was named an “Up & Coming” attorney by Missouri Lawyers Weekly.
BTI’s research for Client Service All-Stars focuses on six key factors: client focus, innovative thought leadership, exceptional understanding of a client’s business, legal skills, outsized value and outstanding results. BTI called the All-Stars “a rare breed” who combine “exceptional legal expertise with practical advice, business savvy and innovative, effective solutions.”
The research process included surveying more than 300 corporate counsel on every aspect of law firm relationships, including needs and priorities, the firms they rely on and client service expectations.
