Bodman “Highly Recommended” in Benchmark Litigation 2021
Bodman PLC has been named a “highly recommended” law firm for business litigation in the 2021 edition of the internationally-recognized journal Benchmark Litigation.
Firms listed as “highly recommended” received the most favorable evaluations by peers and clients during Benchmark’s extensive research process and are regarded as “dominant” in their jurisdiction and area of practice. Benchmark also ranks Bodman as “recommended” for labor and employment litigation, which is the highest rating possible in that category. Benchmark recognizes individual attorneys at ranked firms as “Local Litigation Stars,” “Future Stars,” or as members of its “Under 40 Hot List” of up and coming litigation stars. Bodman attorneys listed in at least one of those categories include:
- Justin P. Bagdady (Ann Arbor office)

Bodman has more Michigan attorneys listed in Benchmark than any other law firm.
Benchmark is the only rating publication that focuses exclusively on litigation departments in the United States. Its findings are the result of four to six months of research with leading litigation attorneys and their clients. Researchers examine recent casework handled by law firms and ask individual litigators to offer their professional opinions on peers.
