Empowered at Varnum

Attorneys with the vision and desire to create a path to success will enjoy a career at Varnum, where initiative and results are resourced, supported and rewarded.

Our culture is differentiated by our appreciation of the entrepreneur. MiSpringboard is Varnum’s statewide initiative designed to remove some of the barriers associated with starting a business by providing free legal services to Michigan startups. To date, MiSpringboard has helped more than 350 new businesses in 80 cities across Michigan, from Houghton to Kalamazoo.

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 culture empowers you to:

  • Grow your practice by using and sharing new ideas
  • Become involved in causes you’re passionate about
  • Connect with other attorneys through professional and social integration
  • Develop your professional knowledge and skills
  • Leverage the resources of a large law firm

Our individual practice plan process and strong support departments are other tools of empowerment. It is our desire that everyone reach their fullest potential, whatever that may be.

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. If you're self-motivated, entrepreneurial by nature and enjoy the thrill of creating success with like-minded partners, talk to us. Find out what it means to be empowered at Varnum. Enquire in confidence to Carroll Velie, Director of Professional Development.
