Miller Canfield’s Tom Cranmer Chosen as Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s “Lawyer of the Year”
Thomas W. Cranmer, a principal and co-leader of Miller Canfield’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution Group (Troy, Mich. office), has been chosen by a vote of his peers as Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s “Lawyer of the Year” for 2014.
Cranmer was honored during a luncheon recognizing 30 Michigan lawyers as “Leaders in the Law.” He was chosen as the Lawyer of the Year by a vote of the other 29 Leaders in the Law. It's a distinct honor, not only for professional success, but also for striking a balance that includes giving back to the legal profession.
A former president of the State Bar of Michigan, Cranmer is a trial lawyer who concentrates his practice in civil and criminal litigation. With more than 35 years of courtroom experience, his practice focuses on white-collar criminal defense, complex commercial litigation and "bet-the-company" litigation.
He has been listed in the Top 10 Attorneys in every edition of Michigan Super Lawyers, and he has been the highest or second highest rated attorney out of more than 42,000 Michigan attorneys for the past six years in a row.
He received his J.D. (1975) from Ohio Northern University and his B.A. (1972) from the University of Michigan.
