Thirty Plunkett Cooney attorneys were recently selected by their peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® for 2016.
First published in 1983, Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which lawyers within their own geographic region nominate their peers. These lawyers are not allowed to select nominees from the same area(s) in which they practice. Inclusion in Best Lawyers (Copyright 2015 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, SC) is considered a singular honor because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed.
Receiving special honors from Best Lawyers this year is Plunkett Cooney attorney Stanley C. Moore, III who was named Detroit “Lawyers of the Year” in Labor Law – Management. This designation is given to only a single attorney in each practice area in each community. Moore has been on the list of The Best Lawyers in America® since 2008.
An of counsel attorney at Plunkett Cooney, one of the Midwest’s oldest and largest law firms in Michigan, Moore devotes his practice exclusively to representing management in labor and employment law matters. He has represented both private and public sector employers in all facets of labor and employment law in union and non-union settings. Moore has represented healthcare providers in all aspects of both state and federal labor and employment law since 1973.
