Michael Best has been named the Top Referring Firm by Lex Mundi in the 201+ lawyer category. The award recognizes member firms that have made the greatest number of outbound referrals to other Lex Mundi members during the 2019 calendar year.
Lex Mundi is the world’s leading network of independent law firms with in-depth experience worldwide, and Michael Best is the exclusive member firm in Wisconsin. As part of the Lex Mundi global network, Michael Best has the ability to provide its clients to preferred access to more than 22,000 lawyers at 160 premier member firms with over 700 offices in more than 125 countries.
To ensure high-quality service, each Lex Mundi member is evaluated on quality, responsiveness, range of legal services, reputation, technology, management structure, ethical standards, conflict procedures, size, court admissions, and other criteria. Members are admitted only after substantial due diligence and must undergo regular quality and peer review procedures. Award winners were determined from information submitted for the Lex Mundi Request for Referral Amounts Survey.
Furthermore, Lex Mundi’s Board of Directors elected Michael Best Partner Tom Miller as Treasurer at the Annual Meeting. Along with Miller, three others were named officers, and each of the elected will serve a four-year term.
“I’m honored to serve as Lex Mundi’s Treasurer,” said Tom Miller, Partner. “Lex Mundi provides us with connections to unmatched global legal resources, and being a part of this network and the board gives our clients access to excellent service across the globe.”
In addition to Miller's leadership role, Michael Best's Chief Marketing & BD Officer Susan Hollender also serves as the Global Chair of Lex Mundi's Marketing & Business Development Committee.
For the first time ever, the annual awards presentation was held virtually at the 2020 Lex Mundi Annual Meeting.
