Bass, Waller make consultants' 'Brand Elite' list

A number of local law firms — some headquartered in Nashville, others with prominent offices here — are featured on BTI Consulting Group's recently published BTI Brand Elite ranking of top firms as seen by in-house counsel at many of the world's largest companies. Making the list are locally based firms Bass Berry & Sims and Waller. Ranked firms headquartered elsewhere but with a solid presence here include Adams and Reese, Baker Donelson, Bradley Arant Boult Cummings, Burr & Forman, Butler Snow, Frost Brown Todd, Nelson Mullins, Ogletree Deakins, Pillsbury Winthrop and Stites & Harbison.

The consultants' list — check out an executive summary here — features more than 200 firms that score well on recommendations, value delivered and innovation. Of note: The BTI team, which interviewed more than 500 in-house attorneys, did not prompt the lawyers with firm names. All mentions were unsolicited.
