May 23, 2012

Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP was one of 12 West Michigan businesses to receive an “Elite” award from the Michigan Business & Professional Association (MBPA). The announcement was made at a recent event in the Grand Rapids area honoring the law firm’s Lansing and Kalamazoo offices among the “West Michigan 101 Best and Brightest Companies to Work For” named by the MBPA. “Elite” winners are those companies within the “101 Best and Brightest” that earned the highest score in 10 specially defined categories addressed in the MBPA survey. Ten companies won in the specific categories and two were honored for the highest cumulative scores in all categories.

Honigman earned the “Elite” title for receiving the highest score of all the companies surveyed in the Strategic Company Performance category, where Honigman’s staff and attorney respondents expressed a high level of satisfaction with the manner in which the firm leadership and employees plan and collaborate to drive company performance in a proactive and meaningful way.

"Our Elite winners this year were so impressive with their dedication to coming up with inventive and motivating programs for their employees. We are proud to provide an opportunity for West Michigan companies to demonstrate their accomplishments," said Jennifer Kluge, MBPA president.

The “101 Best and Brightest” awards were created to honor those companies that work with imagination and conviction to create organizational value through their human resource practices. Honigman was also named one of the “West Michigan 101 Best and Brightest” in 2011. In 2004, 2010 and 2011, the firm was honored as one of the “Metropolitan Detroit’s Best and Brightest.”

Honigman was also named one of the “50 Best Law Firms for Women” by Working Mother magazine and Flex-Time Lawyers, LLC in 2008, 2009 and 2011 and as a “Top Workplace” by the Detroit Free Press in 2011.
