4 Largest Law Firms Directory By Douglas J. Levy Picking up the pieces State s biggest firms stay extra careful in the aftermath of a harsh economy In the wake of a painful, economically challenging 2009, many Michigan law firm managing partners said they came into 2010 with an attitude of being cautiously optimistic. Based on the activity each saw throughout the year, that appeared to have been the right approach. There weren t any layoffs or practice group dissolutions among the 63 largest law firms, and no new associate classes faced deferral. Toward the year s end, many reported positive shifts in work among once-cool practice sectors, such as real estate transactions, commercial contracts and loan originations. Yet, tremors of 2009 s angst could still be felt. Rex E. Schlaybaugh Jr., chairman and CEO of Dykema Gossett PLLC, told Michigan Lawyers Weekly that economic trends still show overall demand for legal services is going to be pretty flat. The clients willingness to accept pricing increases will be limited, and it will put a huge pressure on law firms to run their business more efficiently than ever before, he said. Dykema was ranked fifth among the firms on Lawyers Weekly s 2011 list of Largest Law Firms. The list chronicles activity from Jan. 1, 2010, to Jan. 1, 2011, among Michigan firms that have 20 or more attorneys. Not everyone viewed 2009 s challenges as a bad thing. Lawrence J. Murphy, managing partner at No. 7-ranked 3 Firms reduced in size by 10 or more attorneys Varnum LLP, said that his firm s 2009 reductions in operating costs, in addition to reassessing strategic considerations for new business development and delivery of services, helped in We got better at it as a result of the impact of 2009, he said. As a general practice firm, we are, in some ways, the canary in the mineshaft you can almost look internally to see how the economy is performing externally. 2 Firms increased in size by 10 or more attorneys But Michael W. Hartmann, managing partner at No. 1- ranked Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C., said that strategy only goes so far. You have to match your workforce to the demand as

5 4 Michigan Lawyers Weekly When businesses in Michigan are faced with very competitive times you look closer to make sure every dollar is spent wisely and that there s a reason for your investment in a particular area, and you get something out of it. Mark E. Morley, Secrest Wardle Lynch Hampton Truex & Morley, PC closely as possible on a long-term basis. Everyone tries to figure out how it s going to look two or three years out and try to plan for it, he explained. But the last three years in the U.S. has shown it s a tricky business. In this world, things change pretty quickly, and you have to adapt pretty quickly, Hartmann said. Law firms have concluded that; I don t think you can assume what you did two years ago will work two years from now. Law firms have to adapt like clients do and clients don t get [much time] to adapt. Sectors that saw sizzle In surveying practice sectors, it s clear that Michigan firms adapted to suddenly hot fields in 2010, even returning to ones that cooled off just a few years ago. The most activity was reported in intellectual property, regulatory and restructuring matters for financial institutions, labor and employment and health care. At No. 19-ranked Howard & Howard Attorneys, PLLC, creditors rights, bankruptcy and loan workouts were strong for most of the year. Firm president and CEO Mark A. Davis said that such work slowed down near year s end, as banks that had worked through troubled loans and clients financial difficulties are coming through to the other side. 4 Firms debuting in this year s directory No. 2-ranked Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP had a lot to celebrate in its record year Not only was its real estate tax appeals group robust, it also identified up-market areas, such as private equity and financial institutions in corporate matters. And it wasn t just Michigan that felt it, said firm CEO and chairman David Foltyn. We ve found that we were able to sell our services all around the country to businesses that are comparing us to Chicago and New York firms, he said. By those standards, our value proposition is extraordinary. So much so, he added, that in the latest SNL Financial rankings in terms of national deals for financial institutions, Honigman ranked No. 1. The 2009 amendments to the state s foreclosure-by-advertisement statute where borrowers must come up with a loan modification plan before the lender forecloses on a principal residence played a strong part in Trott & Trott P.C. moving up five spots to rank at No. 14 on the Largest Law Firms list. We re having a lot of one-on-one meetings with borrowers to try to help them avoid foreclosure, which has been a very productive and rewarding effort for our attorneys, said David A. Trott, 1 Firm appeared in last year s directory, but was ineligable for inclusion in this year s directory for having fewer than 20 attorneys Difference in average new-hire salary among the 20 largest firms $19,000 compared to the 2001 edition of Michigan s Largest Law Firms president and managing partner. The firm added 17 attorneys in 2010 because of the surge in that activity, Trott said, adding that coming into the new year, We knew we d have some [additions], but we didn t anticipate as many as we received. Dykema s Schlaybaugh said that the firm s financial institutions practice spent part of 2010 gearing up for implications of the passage of Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. Obviously that requires a huge investment, and we expect that a lot of our clients will be dealing with how to respond to it, he said. When you have any new major overhaul, there will be lots of work that will come out of it as our clients try to figure out the landscape.

6 Largest Law Firms Directory Schlaybaugh said that besides its automotive and energy sectors doing brisk business, expansion of national health care regulation has given Dykema an uptick in activity. Craig A. Mutch, managing member at No. 15-ranked Miller, Johnson, Snell & Cummiskey, P.L.C., also reported good numbers in the firm s hospital practice group, which deals with everything from employment to reimbursement. The nice thing about hospitals is, they need to be here, unlike manufacturing plants that can pick up and go to Mexico or China, he said. And we ve made a significant effort to cultivate that work. Justin G. Klimko, president and managing shareholder at No. 9-ranked Butzel Long, reported strong activity in the firm s banking and restructuring, white-collar crime and internal investigations, international antitrust litigation and automotive groups. As with , he cited slowness in the real estate 20 Firms reduced paralegals market and an uneven economic landscape for transactions as hurting points for most of The values got to the point where people weren t willing to make deals, and sellers just weren t willing to sell, Klimko said. 10 Firms increased paralegals Keeping a good balance Many firms, like No. 10-ranked Bodman PLC, had internal transitioning to balance things out among hot and cool. We are not so specialized here that we don t kind of pick up in other areas when one area is slower, said Ralph E. McDowell, chairman of the firm s executive committee. There are several people here who do a variety of things, such as a real estate attorney who keeps busy with foreclosures and other types of actions, and when that slows down will move toward sales, mergers and acquisitions, and financing as those pick up. You don t have a shift of people in and out of the real estate group, but more a shifting of what they re working on. That was the same thinking for Howard & Howard; in 2010, attorneys there who traditionally did loan documentation work for banks were doing loan workouts for them instead. Plunkett Cooney, ranked No. 8 on the list, had general litigation attorneys stepping into busier areas such as creditors rights and insurance coverage. See Picking up the pieces on page 20
