Bodman PLC named Michigan firm of the year by Benchmark Litigation


 The internationally recognized client and peer-review journal Benchmark Litigation has named Bodman PLC its 2014 Michigan Law Firm of the Year.

The selection was announced at a national award ceremony held on January 30, 2014 at the Essex House in New York.

State winners are chosen based on an analysis of case matters held during the prior year, including potential precedent set or verdicts with notably high dollar amounts at stake.

“This award is a well-deserved recognition for our Litigation Group, which had a fantastic year in 2013” said Bodman Chairman Ralph E. McDowell. “This is a true team win. The award is not based on a single high-profile case but on a track record of success over a broad range of matters for a variety of clients.” 

Benchmark Litigation is the country’s only publication that focuses exclusively on law firm litigation departments. The editors rank firms based on an extensive research process. For the current (2014) edition, the research process was conducted between March and November 2013 and included interviews with thousands of lawyers and law firm clients. As a result of that process, Bodman was ranked as “highly recommended” for business litigation, the highest level possible, and eight Bodman attorneys were listed as “Litigation Stars” or “Future Stars.”

Bodman’s Litigation and Alternative Dispute Practice Group focuses on a wide variety of civil disputes ranging from simple breach of contract claims to antitrust, securities, professional liability, trade secret, and other complex matters.

Bodman is one of Michigan’s largest business law firms with more than 150 lawyers in four Michigan offices in Detroit, Troy, Ann Arbor, and Cheboygan, and an affiliate office in Dallas, Texas. Bodman has a diverse client base that includes individuals and businesses in a variety of industries with emphasis on financial services, automotive, real estate and construction, high tech, health care, manufacturing, and other sectors.
