August 24, 2009

Grand Rapids, Mich., August 24, 2009 – Varnum is pleased to announce that 37 attorneys from the firm are included in the upcoming edition of The Best Lawyers in America® 2010, including seven lawyers who are listed for the first time.

Of significance, Varnum has the highest number of attorneys listed in the area of Employment Law of all Michigan law firms. In Grand Rapids, Varnum has the highest number of attorneys listed in Trust and Estates and Real Estate Law.

Founded in 1981, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence in the United States. Because Best Lawyers is based on a peer-review survey in which over 13,000 leading attorneys throughout the U.S. and Canada cast nearly two million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their specialties, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor.
