According to BTI, Polsinelli is one of 30 law firms clients identify as leading the charge in cybersecurity. The recognition accentuates Polsinelli’s influential impact on the technology industry.

“To be among the very best of national law firms known for cybersecurity highlights our early commitment to this area and deep understanding of the related technology and data security data security issues,” said Polsinelli Chairman Russ Welsh. “As a leader in cybersecurity law, we’ll continue to look to our innovative attorneys to help our clients meet their strategic business goals while protecting their increasingly valuable data.”

This recognition marks Polsinelli’s debut on BTI’s Law Firms Best at Cybersecurity list, and builds upon its recent No. 20 ranking for brand strength as part of BTI’s 2017 BTI Brand Elite. The firm was also recently selected to BTI’s Client Service A-Team as No. 17 in Client Service.
