ABOUT THIS COMPANY:A fixture in Detroit since 1852
Founded in 1852 in Detroit, the 154-year-old Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone began rapid-fire expansion in the late 1970s that took the firm to New York, Florida, Canada and even Poland. With a client list that includes more than 20 percent of the Fortune 500 -- including seven of the top 10 -- Miller Canfield has no doubt solidified its presence as one of Michigan's leading law firms. The impressive credentials of the firm's clientele are matched by those of its attorneys, several of whom have held high-profile positions in places such as the U.S. Department of Energy, the National Economic Council and the Michigan Department of Treasury before entering private practice. That's not to mention the four Michigan Supreme Court justices, a U.S. District Court judge and the two U.S. senators. Oh, and then there are the 79 attorneys named to the 2007 edition of The Best Lawyers in America -- more than any other Michigan firm.
