B&B’s Managing Partner, Mark Fletcher, announced the promotion of Tahmeena I. Ahmed to “Managing Partner, Client Relations.” Per Mr. Fletcher, Ms. Ahmed’s experience as Managing Attorney of B&B’s largest office, located in Tarzana, for the past decade has prepared Ms. Ahmed for her new role: “ensuring that client expectations are consistently met and exceeded on every file, furthering the development of attorney-client communication and rapport, and providing training and developmental opportunities to our clients.”
In response, Ms. Ahmed issued the following open letter:
A little secret to be shared—although the title change came as a pleasant surprise—I was venturing into the client relations territory long before the events leading to this exciting promotion. Every “problem solved” has been a lesson in learning.
So what exactly is it that I will do, or more precisely, continue to do, in this position? With your assistance, I hope to increase and improve rapport between you—our invaluable clients—and our attorneys firm-wide who fight for you. Getting you the right person for your job will lead to successful outcomes. Getting you the responses quickly will save you time, money and effort. Working to bring closure to your files is our first and only goal—be it through expeditious settlement or aggressive litigation.
The single most important attribute in an attorney/client relationship—trust—can fast erode without proper, professional handling of issues as they arise. Knowing the law can be as important as knowing your opponent. As the Managing Partner, Client Relations, my responsibility will be to know the inner workings of each client’s risk management force so as to permit the proper pairing of the right attorney who specializes in mitigating defense exposure to the types of issues at hand.
Competence, confidence, and caring are the necessary cornerstones of an attorney’s success. Please allow me to represent your interests and provide you with the quality representation that you so rightly deserve.
With nearly two decades’ experience defending workers’ compensation claims, Ms. Ahmed. originally brought her talents to Bradford & Barthel, LLP in 1998, as an Associate, quickly progressed to become the Tarzana office’s Managing Attorney in 2000, and a Senior Partner in 2002. During her tenure, the Tarzana office has grown from 2 to 19 attorneys.
Everyone at B&B wishes Tahmeena a hearty congratulations!
