Ballard Spahr has been ranked among the top law firms nationally in BTI Consulting Group’s inaugural Leading Edge Law Firms report, which examines how firms are helping meet clients’ demand for innovative approaches to managing risk, capitalizing on market opportunities, navigating existing challenges, and identifying proactive solutions for emerging issues.

Ballard Spahr was ranked among the top four percent of all firms in the category of “Law Firms Serving as the Source of New Ideas.” Firms in this category are “hungry for innovation and transformation,” the report noted, adding that they are “made up of big-picture thinkers who spot risks, get creative with solutions, and find ways to flip problems into opportunities.”

In the area of “Law Firms Bringing New and Creative Interpretations,” Ballard Spahr was listed among the top 13 percent. Law firms in this category “offer up answers the naysayers don’t bring” and “uncover new possibilities by analyzing issues through different lenses.”

Said Ballard Spahr Chair Peter Michaud, “The market has begun to realize what our clients have known for some time: that Ballard goes beyond for clients by investing in their success, bringing truly forward-thinking legal and business solutions, and delivering them with uncommon efficiency.”

To compile its report, BTI Consulting conducted more than 300 interviews and spoke with top legal decision-makers at companies with $1 billion or more in revenue across 15 industries, from banking to utilities. BTI Consulting has previously named Ballard Spahr an “Intimidating Opponent” in its “Navigating Litigation Spending in the New Unpredictable World” report and a six-category standout in its “M&A Outlook: A Whole New World of M&A” report. The firm’s attorneys and business professionals also are regularly recognized by other legal outlets and organizations; 104 of its attorneys and 50 of its legal practice teams were recognized for excellence in the most recent Chambers USA rankings, and 26 of its practices were ranked in the highest tier nationally by Best Law Firms; its Client Value and Innovation Team won Best Business Team at The American Lawyer’s Industry Awards.
