PHILADELPHIA, April 24, 2023—Duane Morris LLP has been named to the BTI Client Service 30: Best of the Best in Client Service Delivery. The designation, part of BTI Client Service A-Team 2023: Survey of Law Firm Client Service Performance, marks the firm’s third consecutive appearance among what BTI Consulting Group considers the “elite firms that outperform everyone else” in terms of client service. Duane Morris is ranked at No. 23 among the 650 core law firms that serve Fortune 1000 and large private clients. The ranking is based on BTI’s annual survey of a broad cross section of hundreds of general counsel and other in-house decision-makers at organizations with $1 billion or more in revenue.
“Our internal effort to heighten our focus on clients is clearly yielding results and our attorneys are more culturally fluent than ever in terms of communication, responsiveness and being proactive on behalf of our clients,” said Duane Morris Chairman and CEO Matthew A. Taylor.
“To be recognized for our efforts and included in the Top 30 for a third consecutive year by BTI Consulting and our clients is a great honor.”
BTI’s report notes that, “The one-two punch of keeping clients informed and handling problems, along with the firm’s client focus and understanding of the client’s business, shows Duane Morris’ investment in their client relationships. Clients note the firm’s culture of serving the client and use of client feedback to inform their actions and strategies makes them a standout among their peers.”

- “Duane Morris are the gold standard in excellent client service performance and deliver unparalleled service at the highest level.”
