Miller Canfield Among Top 15% of Complex Employment Litigation Firms in America

September 21, 2016

Detroit (Sept. 21, 2016)—Miller Canfield is pleased to announce that the BTI Litigation Outlook 2017 has ranked the firm in the top 15 percent of all U.S. law firms in Complex Employment Litigation.

Miller Canfield’s employment litigation team is regularly ranked alongside the best known major national law firms. With attorneys licensed in several states and admitted to more than 30 federal courts, the team has the capacity to litigate cases throughout the United States and Canada, including: wage and hour disputes; Equal Employment Opportunity Commission harassment, retaliation, discrimination and civil rights claims; Family Medical Leave Act and Americans wth Disabilities Act claims; wrongful discharge, whistleblower and employment-related tort claims; non-compete disputes; and employment-related arbitrations.

The BTI Litigation Outlook reports on client behavior and spending, how it is changing in 2017, and what law firms can do to adapt and strengthen their client relationships. BTI is predicting that there will be little change in spending on litigation, but opportunities for law firms remain strong as many clients are increasingly looking to their existing law firms to do both everyday litigation work and complex litigation. The report noted that specific areas of growth include employment, class action and intellectual property litigation, while commercial litigation spending is expected to decrease in the coming year.
