Butzel Long adds attorneys to firm’s growing Labor and Employment Department

DETROIT, Mich. – Butzel Long, which has one of the largest Labor and Employment practices in Michigan, is growing with the addition of attorneys Terrence J. Miglio and Barbara Eckert Buchanan. They join the firm as shareholders. Formerly, they were with the Varnum law firm.

“Terry and Barbara are highly respected and experienced attorneys with distinguished careers,” said Dan Tukel, Chair, Butzel Long’s Labor, Employment and Employee Benefits Law Department. “They are a wonderful complement to our multidisciplinary team of firm attorneys.”

Both Miglio and Buchanan have significant trial experience, and represent employers before federal and state courts in litigation involving all types of employment and labor claims, including discrimination, wrongful discharge, breach of contract, whistleblower, wage and hour, trade secrets and credentialing of health care professionals.

They advise employers before federal and state administrative agencies in various matters including EEO charges, unfair labor practice charges, and wage and hour complaints, and in counseling employers in all aspects of labor and employment matters.

They also both work with health care organizations in matters such as peer review activities, professional credentialing and discipline.

Miglio is a graduate of the University of Michigan and an honors graduate of Wayne State University School of Law, and is admitted in Michigan and Ohio.

Buchanan is a graduate of the University of Michigan, and the Santa Clara University School of Law, and is admitted in both Michigan and California.

Both have received various honors, including being inducted as Fellows of the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers, a carefully vetted honor for which only those who have distinguished themselves in the field of labor and employment for at least 20 years are eligible. They join John Hancock, Dan Tukel, Jim Rosenfeld and Diane Soubly as Butzel Fellows of the College.
