Dennis R. LaFiura, a litigation partner at Day Pitney LLP, has been named a "Client Service All-Star for 2013" by the BTI Consulting Group. The annual list is based on feedback provided by corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 companies. This year, the survey named 307 attorneys who have met and exceeded clients' expectations and have earned their recognition for delivering "the absolute best client service."
Mr. LaFiura has been named to the list twice before, in 2006 and 2009.
"We are very proud of our firm's client service program, and we are delighted to see Dennis recognized once again for his outstanding client service," said Day Pitney Managing Partner Stanley A. Twardy.
Mr. LaFiura practices in the following distinct areas of litigation: franchising, with particular emphasis in matters involving motor vehicles, hotels, rental cars, and consumer products and services; officer and director liability; securities litigation; professional liability; consumer litigation; and general equity matters. He regularly represents companies in arbitrations, mediations, and other alternative dispute resolution proceedings.
In January, Day Pitney was also recognized by BTI as a leader in client service in its 2013 BTI Client Service A-Team. According to BTI, no law firms or attorneys influence the results, submit nominations or provide client names. Only in-house counsel who were surveyed can identify an attorney who delivers the "highest levels of client service."
Day Pitney has an established firmwide client service program that trains all lawyers and staff on the delivery of excellent client service. The firm has been named to the BTI "A-Team" six times in the past 10 years, and a number of partners have been recognized by BTI for outstanding client service.
