Wiggin and Dana logoNEW HAVEN (February 11, 2016) - Wiggin and Dana partner Merton Gollaher has been recognized for client service excellence in an annual survey of US corporate leaders conducted by BTI Consulting Group. The “BTI 2016 Client Service All-Stars” list is based on feedback by more than 300 corporate counsel from Fortune 1000 companies. According to BTI, “(t)he All-Stars is a data-driven ranking based solely on in-depth telephone interviews with leading legal decision makers.  This research is independent and unbiased – no law firm or organization other than BTI sponsors this study.  No law firm or attorney influences the results, submits nominations, or provides client names to BTI.”  BTI notes that the 312 attorneys named 2016 BTI Client Service All-Stars possess six essential traits: superior client focus, innovative thought leadership, unmatched business understanding, legal skills, outsized value and outstanding results.

Paul Hughes, Wiggin and Dana’s Managing Partner, said “We are not surprised that Mert was selected as a BTI ‘All-Star’ for providing stellar client service.  Mert is held in high regard not only by his peers here at the firm, but also by his clients, and this recognition is a reflection of his commitment to them and the legal profession.”
