Former summer associate joins Plunkett Cooney as attorney


Former summer associate Emily M. Coyle has returned to Plunkett Cooney, one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest law firms, as an attorney in the Bloomfield Hills office.

“We are extremely fortunate to have Emily as a new associate,” said Plunkett Cooney President & CEO, Henry B. Cooney. “She has demonstrated an outstanding work ethic, knowledge of the law and commitment to client service.”

Plunkett Cooney’s 12-week summer associate program provides participants with an opportunity to demonstrate their potential by working alongside the firm’s attorneys on actual client matters. Coyle was a member of Plunkett Cooney’s 2009 summer associate class.

Coyle, who joined the firm as a member of the Banking, Bankruptcy and Creditors’ Rights Practice Group, focuses her practice in the areas of loan workouts and foreclosures, commercial real estate transactions and loan documentation. She represents financial institutions in commercial lending actions, including collections and real estate disputes.

A member of the Michigan and American bar associations, Coyle received her law degree, summa cum laude, earlier this year from Thomas M. Cooley Law School. While there, she received numerous academic awards, including an honors scholarship and multiple certificates of merit. Coyle received her undergraduate degree in 2003 from Juniata College.

Established in 1913, Plunkett Cooney employs more than 160 attorneys in nine Michigan cities, Columbus, Ohio and Indianapolis, Indiana. The firm, which provides a range of transactional and litigation defense services, has achieved the highest rating (AV) awarded by Martindale-Hubbell, a leading, international directory of law firms, and is also listed among the “Best Law Firms” in 2010 as determined by U.S. News and Best Lawyers in America ®.
