Robert Riley Joins Michigan State Bar Foundation Fellows

Press Release

Robert Riley, along with 27 other Michigan attorneys, was welcomed as a new Fellow by the Michigan State Bar Foundation. Established in 1984, the Michigan State Bar Foundation’s Fellows Program recognizes distinguished Michigan lawyers for their professional excellence and service to the community. The Fellows Program supports the Foundation in providing leadership and grants for improvements in the administration of justice and the delivery of civil legal aid to low-income individuals and families.

Riley is a partner in Honigman’s Litigation Department and represents international manufacturers, private equity firms, and closely held businesses in complex commercial and shareholder disputes. He is also the Co-Chair of the firm’s Appellate Advocacy Practice Group and has argued multiple cases before the Michigan Supreme Court and represented parties to disputes before appellate courts throughout the country. Riley also serves as the firm’s Chief Value Partner, where he leads Honigman’s strategic efforts to consistently deliver value to clients, including through the implementation of the firm’s client service standards, legal project management, process improvement, knowledge management, and the use of alternative fee arrangements and value pricing.

The opportunity to join the Fellows is only extended to a limited number of Michigan lawyers each year. Fellows are nominated by their peers and must have been admitted to practice law for a minimum of 10 years. The MSBF Board of Directors has final approval of all Fellows nominees.

There are nearly 1,500 Michigan attorneys who are active Fellows. Since the program’s inception, Fellows’ contributions have provided more than $2 million to support the Foundation’s leadership and grant programs.
