Ballard Spahr is among the top law firms for client relationship strength, according to a recent survey of general counsel and top legal decision-makers across the country.

The BTI Power Rankings 2019: Client Relationship Scorecard recognizes Ballard Spahr as a Contender—one of only 45 firms across the country with the potential to build market dominance based on the strength of its client relationships. The report was issued by BTI Consulting, a leading provider of strategic research to law firms and general counsel. The rankings are based on a survey of nearly 650 corporate legal decision-makers.

In the past year, Ballard Spahr also was recognized by BTI's Legal Innovation and Technology Outlook report for its use of technology to enhance client value and by BTI's Brand Elite Report for the firm's top brand recognition. Ballard Spahr has invested significantly in its Client Value and Innovation Program, which is designed to provide clients with value-based pricing, matter management, and technology solutions tailored to meet their needs.

"This achievement is directly attributable to the attention we devote to understanding our clients' business and delivering value," said firm Chair Mark S. Stewart. "This investment in understanding their business, industry, goals, and challenges—and finding ways to help—produces the best results for them and for us."
