Freeman Freeman & Smiley Named to BTI Power Rankings 2016

Freeman Freeman & Smiley has been recognized in the BTI Power Rankings 2016: The Law Firms with the Best Client Relationships.  Clients ranked FFS as a Leading Core firm in Financial Services, in the top 5% of law firms in the Financial Services industry.

The BTI Power Rankings is the only law firm ranking based solely on direct, unprompted feedback from corporate counsel. The strength of a firm’s client relationships in 16 industries is based on in-depth interviews with more than 320 corporate counsel at the world’s leading organizations.  These strong client relationships are determined by 3 criteria:

  • The law firms clients name as their core, go-to firms
  • The law firms clients recommend most to their peers
  • The prized firms who are both core, go-to firms and the most recommended to their peers

Michael Blumenfeld and Sylvia Scott, partners of our Financial Services, Securities Regulation and Litigation practice, are nationally-recognized for representing securities professionals (financial consultants, branch office managers and regional managers) in litigation against their former employers and in investigations or enforcement proceedings conducted by the Securities and Commodities regulators. They are also nationally recognized for representing members of the securities industry in regulatory proceedings before FINRA, the Securities and Exchange Commission, state regulators and other agencies.
