For more than 120 years, clients have trusted Varnum for excellence, innovation and superior results in the delivery of legal services. Over the years, as the needs of our clients have become more complex, we have kept pace by constantly expanding our areas of practice, our understanding of evolving trends and issues, and our ability to harness technology effectively.
Breadth of experience
Today, with over 150 lawyers practicing in five offices, Varnum is firmly established as one of the region's premier law firms. A full service-provider of legal counsel, Varnum has a strong core of expertise.
Varnum clients represent a diverse range of business and legal interests: manufacturers, financial institutions, health care providers, professional groups, municipalities, colleges and universities, school districts, developers, publishers, retailers, governmental units, transportation, trade associations, charitable organizations, and utilities.
Our team approach to client service provides an outstanding model for maintaining the close personal relationship that traditionally exists between lawyer and client, while ensuring the clients also have available to them the full resources of the firm. One of our lawyers will assume primary responsibility for the client relationship, and he or she will be assisted as needed by other lawyers within the firm who can offer their expertise on a particular matter.
Varnum attorneys have distinguished themselves in public service as leaders of state and civic agencies including the Michigan Employment Relations Commission, the Michigan Public Service Commission, and the Michigan Natural Resources Commission. Varnum attorneys have also served as presidents of the State Bar of Michigan, the Grand Rapids Bar Association, the Detroit Bar Association, the Muskegon Bar Association, and chaired various practice sections of the State Bar of Michigan.
Our associates are gifted women and men who bring to the table their intelligence, energy, strong legal training, and shared commitment to the success of our clients. Varnum also has a staff of highly-skilled legal assistants who coordinate their efforts closely with the firm's lawyers to provide cost-effective work in a wide range of areas. Together, our team of experienced legal professionals ensures the best balance of service and level of attention, to every client's needs.
Varnum has made substantial investments in information technologies designed to improve client service. Research, communications, time tracking, invoicing and document management all play crucial roles in overall client satisfaction. By investing in the information management tools to handle these complex functions, Varnum has achieved superior levels of productivity, accuracy and response times.
