BTI Consulting Group Names John Keker & Michael Celio As Client Service All Stars


BTI’s analysis for The BTI Client Service All-Star Team for Law Firms 2013 draws on candid feedback from corporate counsel at the world’s largest organizations. BTI asks General Counsel and their direct reports to delineate, unprompted, the attorneys who drive superior client relationships. These in-depth telephone interviews determine precisely which attorneys top the charts in client service excellence.

Inclusion in this exclusive report is driven solely by direct feedback from corporate counsel. Law firms and their attorneys have no influence on these rankings.

Included in the 2013 report are:

John Keker - Since founding the firm with law school classmate Bill Brockett in 1978, John Keker has built a reputation as one of the country's top trial lawyers. Four decades of jury trials in white collar criminal cases, complex commercial and intellectual property cases, antitrust and securities cases, establish him as the lawyer clients turn to for their most important and high-profile litigation problems.

MIchael Celio - Mr. Celio handles white collar criminal cases, complex civil litigation, and enforcement actions brought by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission or the Department of Justice. An experienced trial lawyer, Mr. Celio has tried more than a dozen cases to verdict in state and federal courts. He has significant expertise defending civil and criminal securities cases, having tried the only two U.S. cases involving allegations of stock-options backdating.
