Representing the Greater Detroit Area

(December 1, 2023, Southfield, MI) – Leading Michigan law firm Sullivan, Ward, Patton, Gleeson & Felty, P.C., is pleased to announce their selection by Counsel Holdings, Inc., as a member of “Your House Counsel®” representing the greater Detroit area.  Partner and CEO Lee C. Patton was selected as Point of Contact at the firm.

Your House Counsel is a consortium of independent, highly regarded insurance and corporate liability defense law firms, serving as a referral source for in-house counsel. Member firms are rigorously vetted, and must possess a stellar reputation within the legal community and the clients they serve. Among other requirements necessary to be considered for membership, firms must maintain consistent AV ratings in Martindale-Hubbell, and have been ranked in “Best Lawyers in America,” “Super Lawyers,” and other directories that recognize legal excellence.

In awarding membership to Sullivan Ward, Your House Counsel cited strong client recommendations as a factor in their decision, as follows: 

“Sullivan Ward has done work for [name of law firm redacted] for more than thirty years. For the first twenty years, they were primary counsel on their insurance policy with Lloyd’s… If their results weren't good, they would not be doing work for him for so long. Their fees are reasonable and he has never had an issue.”

“They have been defense counsel in MI for [name of law firm redacted] for 25 years. He works primarily with Lee Patton and Brian Patton. They handle all defense premises liability claims - in various areas in MI. They have the longest running relationship with him. There have been times when he has had to replace counsel at properties - not them. He can't say anything negative. They adhere to standards and take good direction - whether billing or reporting. When he makes requests, they get it done. They have great results.”
