Bodman named Michigan Law Firm of the Year

The internationally-recognized client- and peer-review journal Benchmark Litigation has named Bodman PLC its Michigan Litigation Law Firm of the Year for 2021.

Bodman has earned Benchmark’s Law Firm of the Year award for an unprecedented eight consecutive years dating back to 2014.

The selection was announced at the Benchmark US litigation awards ceremony held virtually on March 31. State Law Firm of the Year winners are chosen based on an analysis of cases handled during the prior year, including potential precedents set or matters with notably high dollar amounts at stake.

In the 2021 edition of Benchmark, Bodman is one of only six Michigan firms to achieve the highest possible “Highly Recommended” rating for Business Litigation, and eleven Bodman attorneys are recognized as “Local Litigation Stars,” “Future Stars,” or on the publication’s “40 and Under Hot List.” Bodman is one of only three Highly Recommended firms to also achieve the highest possible “Recommended” rating for Labor and Employment Litigation.

Bodman’s Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution Practice Group attorneys appear before state and federal courts, and also before non-judicial forums such as national and international arbitral panels. The group’s expertise spans many industries including accounting, banking and financial services, automotive, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing, real estate, and construction, among others.
