Butzel Long attorneys named to The Best Lawyers in America® 2019

Sixty-two Butzel Long attorneys have been chosen by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2019 (copyright 2019 by Woodward/White, Inc. of Aiken, SC).

Moreover, the following firm attorneys have been named Lawyer of the Year (Metro): Daniel B. Tukel (Employment Law – Management – Bloomfield Hills); Diane M. Soubly (Employment Law – Management – Ann Arbor); Donald B. Miller (Mass Tort Litigation/ Class Actions – Defendants – Detroit); James S. Rosenfeld (Labor Law – Management — Detroit); and, Thomas C. Simpson (Litigation – Real Estate).

Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 50,000 leading attorneys cast more than five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
