Varnum’s Expansion in SE Michigan Continues with Larger Footprint in Ann Arbor
Varnum has announced another expansion of its Ann Arbor office with the firm’s recent move to 101 North Main Street. The move comes just three years after the firm opened its office in the Kerrytown neighborhood and five years after establishing a presence in Ann Arbor.
“It was very important to us that we be downtown, in the heart of the city,” said Matt Bower who serves as the lead attorney in the Ann Arbor office. “In addition to being in walking distance to the courthouse and Main Street amenities, the larger space will help us keep up with our growing head count in Ann Arbor.”
Varnum’s client base in Southeast Michigan has grown more than 50 percent in the past five years, and a majority of the attorneys who have joined the firm in the past 18 months are based in one of the firm’s four Southeast Michigan offices. In addition to Ann Arbor, Varnum has offices in Detroit, Birmingham and Novi, as well as Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Lansing and Grand Haven.
Currently ranked as the fourth largest firm in the state, Varnum continues to actively recruit talent in the Southeast Michigan region. A total of eight attorneys are based in the Ann Arbor office, which can accommodate about twice that number. The new space includes dedicated parking in a covered lot and a state-of-the-art office environment – attractive features for clients as well as recruits.
In addition to Bower, attorneys resident in the Ann Arbor office include Christopher Baker, Christopher Ballard, Tom Forster, Matthew Maltz, Rick Manczak, Sarah Wixson and Rebecca Wrock. Practice areas represented range from business and corporate work to real estate and estate planning, as well as specialized service offerings to the regulated beverage control industry and healthcare profession.
“While the office has particular strengths in business, corporate, and real estate matters, we are a full service law firm offering an array of sophisticated legal offerings, no matter which office you visit,” Bower said.
The address for the Ann Arbor office is 101 North Main Street, Suite 525, Ann Arbor, MI, 48104. The main office phone number is 734-372-2900.
