The prestigious Chambers USA has again rated Bodman PLC as one of Michigan’s top business law firms.

In the recently released 2023 edition, Chambers placed Bodman in “band one” (the highest possible level) for Banking & Finance and for Bankruptcy/Restructuring. Bodman has been ranked in band one for Banking & Finance continuously for 20 years.

Chambers also ranked Bodman among Michigan’s top law firms for Corporate/M&A, Commercial Litigation, Real Estate, and Labor & Employment, and recognized the firm for expertise in Intellectual Property and Employee Benefits work.

Select Bodman client comments quoted by Chambers include the following:

  • “Bodman has a great ability to turn around documents and meet tight deadlines.”
  • “The team has great knowledge, they are reliable and clients trust them.”
  • “Bodman is always on budget for the matters that it handles, and the service that it provides is well above the value for the money.”
  • “Calls and e-mails are routinely answered in a matter of minutes and always the same day. Its responsiveness is excellent.”
  • “The team is always very responsive and adept at meeting client needs.”
  • “Bodman is efficient, very detailed and its attorneys are deal-makers.”

Chambers ranks individual lawyers based on their legal knowledge and experience, effectiveness, and client service.  Bodman attorneys were recognized as leaders in eight practice areas, including:

  • Banking & Finance: Kathleen O’Callaghan Hickey, Joseph J. Kochanek, Adam B. Norlander and Larry R. Shulman
  • Bankruptcy/Restructuring: Robert J. Diehl, Jr., Ralph E. McDowell, and Jaimee L. Witten
  • Commercial Litigation: Jeffrey G. Raphelson and Joseph J. Shannon
  • Corporate/M&A: Timothy R. Damschroder, Laurence B. Deitch, and Mark W. Peters

  • Intellectual Property: Susan M. Kornfield
  • Labor & Employment: John C. Cashen and Aaron D. Graves
  • Real Estate: Michael B. Peterman, Nicholas P. Scavone, Jr. and Andrew Z. Spilkin

The Chambers research process includes extensive interviews with law firm clients and with peers at other law firms as well as a detailed review of recent matters the firm has handled. Individual lawyer rankings are based on an independent assessment of lawyers who best exemplify the qualities most valued by clients, including technical ability, professional conduct, client service, commercial astuteness, and other factors.
