June 2, 2009


Dykema, a leading national law firm, announces that Corporate Board Member Magazine recently released the results of the 9th annual Corporate Board Member/FTI Consulting Survey and Dykema was voted the best corporate law firm in Detroit. This is the publication's ninth annual America's Best Corporate Law Firms survey sponsored by FTI Consulting, a global business advisory firm. More than 6,300 board directors and general counsel were surveyed and asked which law firm they would most want to represent their corporate matters, and Dykema garnered the top spot in Detroit.

"We are pleased that Corporate Board Member has affirmed Dykema's position as the foremost law firm in Detroit. This honor is particularly meaningful to us because we were selected as the top legal firm by the board directors and general counsel who use our services every day," said Rex E. Schlaybaugh, Jr., Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Dykema.

About the Survey

Corporate Board Member surveyed directors serving on boards of publicly traded companies listed with the NASDAQ, New York, or American Stock Exchanges. The directors were divided into groups based on the location of their companies within metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs). Directors in each of the 25 MSAs featured received a questionnaire specific to their location that included a list of 20 local firms and two write-in options. To be included in the list, each firm had to practice business, corporate, or commercial law and had to be one of the 20 largest firms in its area by number of attorneys. Respondents were asked to select the five local law firms, from the list provided or as a write-in, they would most likely select to aid their companies on a broad range of corporate legal issues.
