Scott Eldridge Named a Michigan Lawyers Weekly Go-To Lawyer

March 29, 2021

Miller Canfield is pleased to announce that Scott Eldridge has been named among Michigan Lawyers Weekly's Go-To Lawyers for employment law.

Eldridge is a principal attorney in the firm's Employment and Labor Group. He is also a member of the firm's Board of Managing Directors and serves as the Resident Director of Miller Canfield's office in Lansing, Michigan.

Eldridge represents colleges and universities, municipalities, nonprofits, public bodies, government contractors and commercial enterprises in state court, federal court, and administrative tribunals. He is currently the lead counsel for a number of the firm's largest clients. His recent work includes serving as Michigan litigation counsel for the 2020 Biden for President campaign, representing one of the state's largest universities in high-profile litigation, and a case in which the Michigan Court of Appeals opined in a matter of first impression that the Michigan medical marijuana statute does not prohibit public employers from enforcing zero-tolerance drug policies.

"Scott has become a go-to lawyer for his honest assessments of his clients' unique circumstances and matters," said Miller Canfield CEO Megan Norris, who formerly led the firm's Employment and Labor Group. "He becomes an extension of his clients' teams, their HR departments and their legal departments, so it's an easy choice to make to call on Scott and his team to handle legal matters because the client knows exactly what they're getting and who they're getting it from."

Eldridge has been named by Chambers & Partners, a top global lawyer and law firm research and ranking organization, as an Up and Coming Individual for Labor and Employment and has been named a Rising Star in Michigan Super Lawyers for Employment Litigation Defense. He is the past chair of the Michigan Chamber of Commerce Health and Human Resources Committee.

Eldridge will be profiled in a special section that will appear in Michigan Lawyers Weekly in April.
