Crain's Best in Class Law: LogoFollowing an extensive review conducted by a board comprised of Metro Detroit legal and business professionals working in conjunction with the special projects editor for Crain’s, Plunkett Cooney was selected the first ever winner of the Law Firm of the Year honor.

“I can’t tell you how proud all of the men and women of Plunkett Cooney are about receiving this honor,” said Plunkett Cooney’s President & CEO Tom Vincent. “It’s a validation of the hard work, expertise and results our attorneys and staff achieve from the boardroom to the courtroom to the community. We’ve always known that ours is a great law firm, but it’s nice to be acknowledged by such a prestigious publication like Crain’s.”

The firm’s selection as Law Firm of the Year was based on trial verdicts, impactful litigation, appellate decisions and noteworthy business deals in 2017 and 2018. The honor was announced in the Oct. 29 edition of the business news publication.

Established in 1913, Plunkett Cooney employs nearly 300 employees, including approximately 150 attorneys in eight Michigan cities, as well as in Chicago, Illinois, Columbus, Ohio and

Indianapolis, Indiana. The firm, which provides a range of transactional and litigation services, has achieved the highest rating (AV) awarded by Martindale-Hubbell. For eight consecutive years, U.S. News and Best Lawyers have also named Plunkett Cooney among its top commercial law firms in the United States.

Additionally, Plunkett Cooney was honored earlier this year by the National Law Journal as being among the top law firms nationally for female attorney diversity. The firm has also previously received state wide honors for being among the top places to work.
