AZA Earns ‘Most Feared Law Firms’ Ranking in National Corporate Counsel Survey
July 17, 2015

HOUSTON – AZA, or Ahmad, Zavitsanos & Mensing, has again earned selection as one of the nation’s “most feared law firms” by a leading research group that conducts a comprehensive survey of corporate counsel at major U.S. companies.

AZA and its team of talented trial lawyers were selected through an analysis conducted by BTI Consulting Group, an independent research organization that regularly surveys clients to evaluate professional services. BTI’s “Honor Roll of Most Feared Law Firms” appears in BTI Litigation Outlook 2015.

The 40 firms across the country on the list were chosen on the basis of extensive interviews with 300 general counsel and in-house litigation counsel at top-spending companies and organizations. Feedback on more than 160 law firms was then analyzed for the final report.

“Being most feared in the courtroom is a reputation that we and our clients relish,” says John Zavitsanos, a founding partner of the complex commercial litigation firm. “Selection by BTI Consulting is especially heartening because it is based on corporate counsel surveys.”

BTI Consulting repeatedly has listed AZA and individual firm lawyers among the best for client service. In 2013, Mr. Zavitsanos was named to BTI’s All-Star list for client service. The previous year, the firm was named to the Client Service A-Team, and in 2010, AZA was named to the national “awesome opponents” list.

The BTI honor roll recognition comes just days after the firm was chosen by legal news publication Law360 for its 2015 list of 10 boutique firms “Giving Big Law a Run for its Money.”

AZA, or Ahmad, Zavitsanos & Mensing, is a Houston-based law firm that is home to true courtroom lawyers with a formidable track record in complex commercial litigation, including energy, intellectual property, and business dispute cases. AZA is recognized in Chambers USA 2015 among the best in Texas commercial law; U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America as one of the country’s best commercial litigation firms in 2014; and Law360 as one of only 13 Texas Powerhouse law firms. National corporate counsel named AZA one of the country’s best in client service among law firms serving the Fortune 1000. Read more at
