A Career Home

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. Originally launched in 2011 with a $1 million commitment, Varnum renewed its commitment in 2016 by dedicating a second $1 million to the program. To date, MiSpringboard has helped more than 300 new businesses in 78 cities across Michigan, from Houghton to Kalamazoo. Varnum partners with more than 30 organizations – including business incubators, private investors and angel funds – who refer candidates to the program. Learn more

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. 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.
