CHICAGO — Michigan law firm Miller Canfield Paddock and Stone PLC is expected to serve as local outside counsel to Detroit as the city embarks on a large-scale restructuring under a new emergency financial manager.

The city, under Mayor Dave Bing and the Detroit City Council, hired Miller Canfield last December to handle lawsuits and other issues tied to the financial stability agreement between the city and the state. The firm is likely to remain now that the stability agreement has been replaced by emergency financial manager Kevyn Orr.
