Mountain View, CA (September 4, 2012) – The American Lawyer ranked Fenwick & West #2 nationally in its 2012 Associate Tech Survey. As part of the annual Midlevel Associates Survey, the ranking is based on associate responses in four areas: overall quality, training, support and use of technology on behalf of clients. Fenwick received the highest composite score among AmLaw 200 firms in technology and has been included in the top tier for many years.
“This recognition underscores Fenwick’s commitment to technology and more importantly to delivering client service,” said Matt Kesner, chief information officer at Fenwick. “A key example of how we address client service through technology is our cost-saving extranet program which automatically creates a ShareRoom for each new client matter that is customized to the type of matter,” he continued.
Kesner is also included in the article accompanying the survey results, “No Glitz, No Glamour,” where he describes an inclusive approach to making new technologies available in the workplace.
