Fraser Trebilcock Attorney Michael E. Cavanaugh was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America© 2015 in the fields of Administrative/Regulatory Law, Bet-the-Company litigation, Commercial Litigation, and Labor and Employment Litigation. He was also selected as a 2014 Super Lawyer in the area of Business Litigation.
Mr. Cavanaugh is a past recipient of the 2008 Ingham County Bar Association Outstanding Attorney award, and is a life member of the "Fellows of the American Bar Association". He is an AV preeminent rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell, and has successfully represented clients before all levels of the state and federal court system including the United States Supreme Court.

Best Lawyers© is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which almost 50,000 leading attorneys cast nearly five million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas; because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
Super Lawyers is a rating service of outstanding lawyers from more than 70 practice areas who have attained a high-degree of peer recognition and professional achievement. The selection process is multi-phased and includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations. Only five percent of attorneys in Michigan are awarded with the honor.
