Miller Canfield has earned its reputation for excellence among the world's law firms. This success has been built on hard work and a tradition of working as a team, by blending the talents of many fine attorneys to deliver services of the highest quality.
We believe that the team approach allows us to perform the client's work in high-quality, cost-effective fashion, and that it is a natural impetus for effective training.
Like any other team, we require members with a wide variety of skills and experience, so we believe it is imperative that we make smart hiring decisions. Many, but not all, of our entry level lawyers come to us through our Summer Associate Program. Among our lateral hires are lawyers who sought us out, those who were recommended to us by others as being of Miller Canfield caliber, and who we believe add special value to our firm and our clients.
No matter what road they travel to our door, new lawyers are welcomed, oriented to their new firm and practice group, and given the support they need to immediately take on challenging work. Our support system includes orientation, training and mentoring.
