Chambers USA 2017 Recognizes Bodman as One of Michigan’s Top Business Law Firms
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 2017 edition, Chambers again placed Bodman in “band one” (the highest possible rating) for Banking & Finance. Bodman has been the sole Michigan law firm ranked in band one for Banking & Finance for more than a decade.
Chambers ranked Bodman among Michigan’s top law firms in Corporate/M&A, Commercial Litigation, Real Estate, and Labor & Employment, and recognized the firm for expertise in Employee Benefits work.
