Varnum Welcomes New Associates
Three new associates have joined Varnum LLP and will be practicing in the Grand Rapids office. They bring a variety of legal service backgrounds to the firm, including serving as judicial clerks, working at pro bono legal clinics and serving as summer associates at firms including Varnum.
As new associates, each attorney will be able to take advantage of Varnum’s “free agent” approach, practicing in a variety of legal areas for about two years before deciding on a specific area of legal focus.
