Bodman Ranked Nationally and Locally for Excellence in Banking Law Services

By: Bodman PLC


Bodman PLC is pleased to announce that the firm’s Banking Practice Group and Bankruptcy and Debtor-Creditor Rights Practice Group, as well as 18 of our lawyers who primarily serve banking clients, have been recognized for excellence in rankings released today by two leading business publications.

First, U.S. News, in association with The Best Lawyers in America, has ranked Bodman nationally for Banking and Finance Law and for Bankruptcy and Creditor Debtor Rights/Insolvency and Reorganization Law on its 2020 “Best Law Firms” list. Bodman is ranked in these practice areas at the same level as many significantly larger firms with national or global footprints. Within the local southeast Michigan market, U.S. News ranks both practices at the highest possible “Tier 1” level.

U.S. News bases its Best Law Firms list on an extensive evaluation process that includes detailed client evaluations, peer review from other leading attorneys, and an analysis of additional data provided through a law firm submission process.

Also, Detroit-based DBusiness Magazine has recognized 69 Bodman attorneys, including 18 attorneys who primarily serve banking clients, as 2020 “Top Lawyers” based on a peer survey. The Bodman banking attorneys who appear on the DBusiness Top Lawyers List include:

  • Marc M. Bakst
  • David C. Bosman
  • M. Brian Braum, Jr.
  • Robert J. Diehl, Jr.
  • Scott P. Gyorke
  • Kathleen O’Callaghan Hickey
  • Joseph J. Kochanek
  • Melissa A. Lewis
  • Kelly M. Lockman
  • Ralph E. McDowell
  • Adam B. Norlander
  • Michael B. Peterman
  • Damali A. Sahu
  • Nicholas P. Scavone, Jr.
  • Larry R. Shulman
  • Brian R. Trumbauer
  • Jaimee L. Witten
  • Wendy L. Zabriskie

To compile its list, DBusiness conducted a peer survey of more than 18,000 attorneys in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Washtenaw, and Livingston Counties. Participants were asked to nominate up to three leading attorneys in each of 53 legal specialties.
