WASHINGTON, DC - February 17, 2015 - O’Melveny & Myers LLP partner Richard Parker has been named a 2015 BTI Client Service All-Star by BTI Consulting Group.  Parker is among a select group of lawyers who earned recognition from leading general counsel and legal decision makers for exceptional client service.

Roughly 300 corporate counsel at Fortune 1000 and other large companies surveyed by BTI nominated attorneys who deliver unparalleled client service through superior client focus, innovative thought leadership, exceptional understanding of the client’s business, tremendous depth and breadth of knowledge, outsized value, and outstanding results.  “Most attorneys are focused on building out the expertise and practice capabilities needed to tackle every client need. Relatively few focus on delivering the absolute best client service.  The BTI Client Service All-Stars are the exception: serving the client better than anyone else,” BTI noted.  “It is a true achievement to earn this level of praise from influential clients.”

Parker is the chair of O’Melveny’s Antitrust and Competition Practice and resides in the Firm’s Washington, DC office.  He has extensive experience in antitrust matters both before the enforcement agencies and in the courts.  After Parker served as lead trial counsel and negotiated a very favorable settlement for US Airways Group Inc. that resolved the DOJ’s attempt to block the airline’s merger with American Airlines, Global Competition Review recognized him as “Litigator of the Week.”

Parker discussed his approach to client service in Law360's coverage of the BTI report.  "I try to think in very practical and concrete terms of what would be desirable or necessary to address the problem, what is the most cost-effective means to address the problem, and what are the lessons learned from whatever situation has arisen," he said.
