Clifford W. Taylor, former chief justice of the Michigan Supreme Court, is joining Miller Canfield Feb. 15 as of counsel in the appellate section of the firm’s litigation and trial group. He will work out of Miller Canfield’s offices in Lansing, Mich. and Naples, Fla.

Taylor brings 16 years of judicial experience to the role. He was appointed to the Michigan Court of Appeals in 1992 and elected later that year. In 1997 he was appointed by former Gov. John Engler to the Michigan Supreme Court. He served as chief justice from 2005-09.

“Justice Taylor will be a valuable resource for clients,” said Michael Coakley, head of Miller Canfield’s litigation and trial group. “From his years of experience on the appellate bench, he knows first-hand what works and what does not in pursuing and presenting an appeal.”


Taylor will appear on behalf of amici curiae on appeals involving federal and state constitutional, statutory and public policy matters.  He will also serve as an arbitrator and mediator.

Miller Canfield has more than 370 lawyers with offices in Michigan, Illinois, Florida, New York, Ohio, Canada, Mexico, Poland and China.
