WHITE PLAINS, NY (September 25, 2015) Jackson Lewis P.C., one of the country’s preeminent workplace law firms, is pleased to announce that for the fifth consecutive year the firm has been designated a Powerhouse in both Complex and Routine Litigation in the BTI Litigation Outlook 2016 : Changes, Trends and Opportunities for Law Firms. The results of this in-depth analysis of today’s litigation market are based on extensive one-on-one interviews with over 300 corporate counsel from Fortune 1000 companies.
Jackson Lewis Chairman Vincent A. Cino said the survey results were a testament to the firm’s commitment to client service. “The fact that our clients hold us in such high esteem is everything. We are in a service profession and must make sure we take care of their needs.”
“We are honored to be recognized by BTI,” said Joan Ackerstein, Jackson Lewis’ National Director of Litigation. “I congratulate our ever-growing team of hard-working, passionate litigators who have ensured Jackson Lewis has become known as a go-to firm for employment litigation.”
BTI President Michael B. Rynowecer said the Powerhouse firms are “noteworthy not only for their investments over the years but also for being willing to be flexible and utilize firm-wide resources to pursue and service clients” and are “making huge investments in understanding clients and the kinds of litigation they’re facing — in some cases designing specific systems and specific protocols to meet the larger needs of larger clients.”
“BTI’s recent survey makes clear that employers now, more than ever, are in need of legal review and guidance of their long-standing policies and procedures in light of an increased focus on background check policies, LGBT worker rights, recent National Labor Relations Board decisions and on-going wage-and-hour issues,” said William J. Anthony, Leader of Jackson Lewis’ Class Actions and Complex Litigation Practice Group. Given this dynamic landscape, we could not be more pleased that our litigation success has been recognized by our core constituency.”
