Russian Attorneys Visit Detroit Law Firm

May 16, 2000

The law firm of Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C. hosted a group of Russian attorneys in its downtown Detroit office on May 3. Local Rotary groups and the Rotary International sponsored their visit to learn about America's legal system.

Detroit is one of several cities the Russian attorneys visited during their trip to the United States. "The purpose of the visit is to educate the attorneys--all of whom are in private practice in Russia--on how U.S. firms are organized and how they practice" said Miller Canfield's CEO, Thom Linn. Topics the group asked Miller Canfield to address included: How a private law firm is structured and successfully managed; the commercial lawyer's role and the sort of advice given; breadth of services commonly provided; marketing efforts employed; and how fees are determined.

The 260-attorney law firm of Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C., established in Detroit, Michigan in 1852, has offices in Ann Arbor, Detroit, Grand Rapids, Howell, Kalamazoo, Lansing, Monroe, Troy, Washington, D.C., New York City, and in Gdynia, Katowice, and Warsaw, Poland; with an affiliated office in Pensacola, Florida.
