Bodman PLC is pleased to share that Kelly M. Burnell, member and co-chair of Bodman’s High Net Worth Practice Group, has been appointed to CATCH’s Board of Trustees.

CATCH (Caring Athletes Team for Children’s and Henry Ford Hospitals) is a children’s charity founded in 1987 by the late Detroit Tigers Manager Sparky Anderson. Through an ongoing series of special events and an annual giving program, CATCH raises funds for items and services that improve the quality of life of sick, injured and economically disadvantaged pediatric patients from Children’s Hospital of Michigan and Henry Ford Health. Since its inception, CATCH has provided nearly $10.5 million for such items and services.

As a board member, Burnell will help guide the organization’s operations and fundraising activities, which include the CATCH Golf Classic, CATCH Night of Champions, The Detroit News/CATCH Outstanding High School Graduate Awards program, as well as various other third-party functions. She has a three-year renewable term and will be up for reappointment in 2027.

As co-chair of Bodman’s High Net Worth Practice Group, Burnell serves as a trusted advisor to high net worth individuals and families and assists them with managing many aspects of their personal and financial affairs. She advises clients on estate planning, trust and estate administration, wealth transfer and tax planning matters, business succession planning, and the formation and administration of private foundations. She was recently recognized by Crain’s Detroit Business as a Notable Women in Law. Burnell has been listed in Chambers HNW for Private Wealth Law since 2021 and in DBusiness Magazine Top Lawyer for Trusts and Estates since 2020.
