According to clients, just 565 attorneys nationwide perform at the level of “All-Stars.” Goldberg Segalla’s David S. Osterman is one of them.
Dave has been named one of the BTI Client Service All-Stars 2022, the only ranking and attorney recognition based entirely on client input. To identify the All-Stars, The BTI Consulting Group of Wellesley, MA, performed in-depth interviews with top legal decision makers from large and Fortune 1000 companies who define, delineate, and designate who is best, based on real-time experience and comparison.
When highlighting Dave’s service, clients called him “inquisitive” and “very, very innovative.” One client noted “He can pinpoint weaknesses in any adversary.” BTI identified additional aspects of a client service all-star, including knowledge of the client’s industry, moving quickly and switching gears as circumstances demand, and being there to answer questions no matter how urgent or casual they may be.
“My number one goal is to understand my client’s goals so we can mutually develop the most effective and efficient strategy for achieving that goal,” Dave said. “It’s not enough to be a good lawyer; clear and prompt communications about how we are implementing the plan and making progress towards the goal are just as essential.”
