A Career Home
Varnum is not for everyone. Those who hope to ride out a career by lying low and blending in may be more content elsewhere. But if you have the vision and desire to create a path to success, chances are you'll enjoy your career at Varnum, where initiative is resourced and supported, and results are rewarded.
Our culture is differentiated by our appreciation of the entrepreneur. In 2011, we launched MiSpringboard, a $1 million commitment in free legal services to entrepreneurs and growing businesses with plans to create jobs in Michigan. Since then we have helped more than 160 clients, in industries ranging from on-demand software to medical devices to alternative energy and fueling systems.
Just as we support client entrepreneurs, we encourage our attorneys to explore opportunities that will help them build a successful practice. And we allocate resources to ensure that opportunities are realized. Our encouragement of the entrepreneur is enhanced by our individual practice plan process and strong support departments. It is our desire that everyone reach their fullest potential, wherever that may be.
Another tenet of our culture is teamwork. People working together for a common goal will generate more success -- for our clients and for our firm.
While many large- and mid-size firms are risk-averse, we believe the opportunity to explore new ideas adds to the enjoyment of practicing law. Varnum is not for everyone. But if you're self-motivated, entrepreneurial by nature and enjoy the thrill of creating success with like-minded partners, talk to us. Varnum may be your career home.
Varnum has five locations across Michigan and will open our sixth office in 2015. For more information about practicing law in Grand Rapids, check out the GRabLaw website (Grand Rapids = Achieve Balance).
