Smith Anderson Named to Prestigious List of 37 Midsize Law Firms in U.S. “Punching Above Their Weight”

Published by BTI Consulting Group

Smith Anderson is one of 37 midsize law firms across the United States “punching above their weight,” according to research conducted by BTI Consulting Group. BTI stated that the firms included on this list “bring the same level of confidence and reliability as the big firms and clients look to these midsize firms for a wide variety of risky, delicate, and thorny matters – including highly customized advice about [post-COVID-19] reopening and related issues.”

Smith Anderson is the only North Carolina-headquartered firm to be included on the list. Our commitment to unparalleled client service is a distinguishing factor, as according to the article, “The secret is in the client service. These firms are uber-responsive, dig deep, hard, and fast to find the answers. Clients report these firms bring industry understanding and the most important factor – an unfailing commitment to help. These overachievers are among the most active in providing up-close counsel and trusted advice.”

The research conducted by The BTI Consulting Group is based on more than 340 in-depth interviews, across 17 industries in the US. No law firm can self-submit, refer a client, or pay to be included.
