Harris Beach Partner Abbie Eliasberg Fuchs has received one of the legal profession’s most prestigious honors for outstanding client service. BTI Consulting has named her to the 2020 Client Service All-Stars. Only 475 attorneys nationwide are included on the All-Star list.
“My goal is to make every client feel as though they are my only client by providing counsel that is responsive, thorough, insightful and designed to achieve the best result for the business,” Fuchs said.
Fuchs leads the Harris Beach U.S. News and World Report nationally ranked Tier 1 Mass Torts and Industry-Wide Litigation Practice Group and the Product Liability and General Liability Practice Group. Based in the firm’s New York City office, Fuchs serves as national coordinating counsel, regional counsel and local counsel to Fortune 100 companies and concentrates in the areas of toxic and mass tort litigation, complex products liability litigation, complex commercial disputes including breach of contract actions and catastrophic injury cases where immediate responses are required. She represents clients in consumer products, pharmaceuticals, construction, chemical manufacturing, energy production and transmission and numerous other industries. She is a member of select national defense counsel committees and national expert steering committees in a wide variety of industries.
BTI Consulting selects Client Service All-Stars based on unprompted responses during in-depth interviews with more than 350 legal decision-makers at organizations with more than $700 million in revenue. From these interviews, BTI identified client service activities common to All-Star attorneys. These include demonstrating a high level of communication and engagement with the client, investing the time to understand the client’s business, displaying savvy solutions to overcome obstacles, being unequivocal in their recommendations, and anticipating client needs and sharing knowledge.
