Michael S. Khoury, a Farmington Hills-based partner practicing law in Michigan with New York-based FisherBroyles, was named the recipient of the 17th Annual Stephen H. Schulman Outstanding Business Lawyer Award by the State Bar of Michigan’s Business Law Section.

This award honors Michigan business lawyers who consistently exemplify the characteristics the Business Law Section seeks to foster and facilitate: the highest quality of professionalism, the highest quality of practice, and a dedication to service, ethical conduct, and collegiality within the practice of law.

Khoury specializes in a variety of commercial, business, and technology business matters, with an emphasis in corporate and information technology transactions and mergers and acquisitions.

He has worked at FisherBroyles, a full-service distributed law firm, in the United States since 2016. Before this, Khoury worked as a business lawyer at Clark Hill PLC for 16 years. He also worked as in-house counsel overseeing IT procurement at Daimler Chrysler and as a vice president, general counsel and corporate secretary for a public Ann Arbor-based software firm as well as working 12 years with the Jaffe (now Taft) firm.

Throughout his career Khoury has counseled a range of corporate clients from small businesses to Fortune 1,000 organizations. He has been a featured speaker within the legal and business sectors for more than 30 years, often educating audiences on legal issues related to technology transactions and the interface between technology and insolvency.

“Anytime you are mentioned in the same sentence with any of past recipients it is quite an honor,” says Khoury. “(The award) is not something that you ever think will happen to you but being recognized by my peers is very gratifying and humbling.”

Khoury earned his B.A. from University of Michigan with Honors and Distinction and his J.D. from Wayne State University.

Khoury will be introduced at the Schulman Award Ceremony, conducted in conjunction with the section’s annual meeting on Oct. 6 in Grand Rapids, by Marguerite Donahue, another former chair of the Business Law Section and a corporate attorney with Taft Stettinius & Hollister.
