MAYNARD COOPER’S INSURANCE PRACTICE RANKED AMONG TOP SIX IN U.S. BY FORTUNE 1000 COMPANIES
BTI Consulting Group recently ranked Maynard Cooper & Gale’s Insurance Practice as one of the top six in the nation. The ranking appeared in the BTI Client Relationship Scorecard 2014: Ranking Law Firm Client Relationships, and is based on an independent, in–depth survey of more than 500 corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 companies.
Maynard Cooper was the only regional law firm ranked in the Top Six, and the only law firm based in Alabama to appear in the insurance rankings. The firm’s insurance practice has more than 30 attorneys, many of whom are licensed and practice in jurisdictions across the country. The group provides litigation defense to various life insurance, annuity, and financial services companies throughout the United States, handling matters ranging from routine claims and sales practice cases to class action and complex multi-district litigation defense. Known for its reputation for aggressive strategic defense, the firm serves as national trial counsel and class action counsel for some of the industry’s largest insurers. The insurance practice group has served as lead counsel in defending significant exposure cases in state and federal courts from California to New York.
“We believe this ranking reflects both the high regard that our clients have for our work, as well as recognition from our clients that we offer exceptional value for the services that we provide,” said Jeff Grantham and Michael Mulvaney, who co-chair the Insurance & Financial Services practice at Maynard Cooper.
The BTI Consulting Group, based in Wellesley, Mass., is the leading provider of strategic market research to law firms and professional services firms.
