Chambers USA 2016 Recognizes Bodman as One of Michigan’s Top Business Law Firms

By: Bodman PLC


The prestigious client- and peer-review journal Chambers USA has again rated Bodman PLC as one of Michigan’s top business law firms.

In the newly released 2016 edition, Chambers again places Bodman in the “first band” (the highest possible rating) for Banking & Finance, where Chambers has ranked the firm for over ten consecutive years. Chambers also ranked Bodman among Michigan’s top law firms in Corporate/M&A, Litigation, Real Estate, and Labor & Employment. Bodman is one of a small number of firms that maintained the previous year’s rankings without dropping in any category.

The Chambers research process includes interviews with clients and peers at other law firms as well as an assessment of recent client matters handled by the firm.

Chambers also ranks individual lawyers based on their legal knowledge and experience, effectiveness, and client service. Bodman attorneys maintained their rankings, with the addition of several newly ranked lawyers. Our attorneys were ranked in each of the six practice areas that Chambers evaluates in Michigan, including:

Banking & Finance: Robert J. Diehl, Jr., Scott P. Gyorke, Kathleen O’Callaghan Hickey, Joseph J. Kochanek, Ralph E. McDowell, Larry R. Shulman (Star Individual), Daniel C. Watson, and Wendy L. Zabriskie
Commercial Litigation: Thomas P. Bruetsch (Recognized Practitioner), Dennis J. Levasseur, Joseph J. Shannon, and Thomas J. Tallerico
Corporate/M&A: Timothy R. Damschroder, Laurence B. Deitch, Carrie Leahy, Mark W. Peters
Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation: David B. Walters
Labor & Employment: John C. Cashen, Steven J. Fishman, and Karen L. Piper
Real Estate: David W. Hipp (Senior Statesman), Erik S. Prater (Up and Coming), Nicholas P. Scavone, Jr., and Andrew Z. Spilkin
