TROY, Mich.—Stephanie A. Douglas has been named partner at Bush Seyferth & Paige PLLC (BSP), a leading boutique litigation firm in Troy.
Stephanie leads BSP’s Appeals, Complex Briefing, and Class Action Defense team. Since joining BSP, Stephanie has helped new and existing clients—including Ford Motor Company, Chrysler Group LLC, FordDirect, William Beaumont Hospital, PulteGroup, Inc., and Citigroup Inc.—earn important victories in state and federal courts around the country. Many are high-stakes wins involving millions in claimed damages. With complex briefs covering subjects such as personal and subject-matter jurisdiction, torts, contracts, employment, trademarks, construction, insurance, UCC (banking), NAFTA, ERISA, LMRA, class actions, mass actions, and arbitrations, just to name a few, Stephanie has proven that she can tackle literally any legal topic.
Stephanie’s creative legal strategies consistently minimize her clients’ exposure. For example, in a significant Arizona case, Stephanie crafted briefs that resulted in the defeat of class certification and the with-prejudice dismissal of the named plaintiff’s claims, allowing the client to secure a substantial judgment in prevailing-party attorneys’ fees. In a major Kentucky trial, Stephanie joined a seasoned trial team as their Advanced Motion and Appellate consultant. Before and at trial, Stephanie’s arguments whittled down Plaintiffs’ claim for damages, precluded Plaintiffs from introducing evidence to satisfy their burdens of proof, and ultimately helped the trial team to secure a complete defense verdict.
In 2012, Michigan Lawyer’s Weekly recognized Stephanie as an Up & Coming Lawyer, an honor awarded annually to just 20 lawyers in Michigan. The attorneys around the state also recognized Stephanie as a Rising Star in Appellate law in 2013. By promoting Stephanie to partner, BSP echoes the confidence her clients have expressed in her legal talents and leadership. Congratulations, Stephanie!
Based in Troy, Mich., Bush Seyferth & Paige PLLC is a specialized firm providing national-caliber litigation services with trial skills second to none. Some of America’s best-known companies look to BSP for successful results in complex commercial, employment, class action and tort litigation.
