Dickinson Wright relocates to Troy business corridor

Of the top 10 largest law firms in Michigan, four have had branch offices in or around the Woodward Avenue-Long Lake Road intersection of Bloomfield Hills.

Come the end of this week, there will be one fewer, as Dickinson Wright PLLC will move its Woodward-Lone Pine office to the Bank of America Building in Troy.

“The main motivating factor for the move to Troy was growth of our Oakland County office,” said Dickinson Wright CEO William T. Burgess in a statement, adding that “this growth could not be fully accommodated in our existing Bloomfield Hills space.”

More than one-third of the firm’s 218 Michigan attorneys are based in its Oakland County office, which also includes the firm’s Intellectual Property Academy internship program and a “sizeable proportion” of the firm’s administrative staff.

The Bank of America Building is at 2600 W. Big Beaver Road, Suite 300.

Dickinson Wright was ranked No. 4 in Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s 2011 list of “Largest Law Firms.”

The other three top 10 largest firms with branch offices still in the Woodward-Long Lake area are Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP (No. 2); Dykema Gossett PLLC (No. 5); and Butzel Long (No. 9). No. 8-ranked Plunkett Cooney has its main office across the street from Dickinson Wright’s soon-to-be former Bloomfield Hills branch.
