Law firm joins international network
A law firm has been named the Michigan-based member of an international network of law firms.
Warner Norcross & Judd said last month that it has joined the invitation-only USLAW Network.
The organization is composed of about 100 national and international firms and more than 6,000 attorneys across the U.S., Canada, Latin America, Europe, Asia and Africa.
The network was created to meet legal needs that often “transcend geographic boundaries,” with the benefit of regional, independent firms, as opposed to the alternative “mega-firm” model, according to USLAW’s website.
Warner Norcross said its USLAW membership will benefit clients by “facilitating direct access to a network of attorneys who can provide insight and information specific to venues in other states and countries.”
“We are pleased to welcome the attorneys from Warner Norcross to USLAW,” said C. Erik Gustafson, chair of USLAW and a partner at USLAW member firm LeClairRyan in Virginia.
Gustafson called Warner Norcross “one of the most successful law firms in Michigan” and said the firm will serve as a “tremendous legal resource to USLAW member firms and their clients.”
Warner Norcross operates eight offices throughout Michigan with 230 attorneys.
“We’re proud to be included among the firms USLAW has identified as having significant trial and litigation experience, as well as considerable expertise in commercial, business, employment and labor law,” said Doug Wagner, managing partner, Warner Norcross.
Warner Norcross highlighted its key practices and expertise that will benefit the USLAW network firms.
The firm’s litigation and dispute resolution practice focuses on antitrust and unfair competition, class-action defense, employee benefits, employment, environmental, insurance, product liability, real property, securities, tax and other areas.
The firm also has an appellate and Supreme Court practice, with attorneys appearing regularly in Michigan courts, as well as circuit appellate courts and the U.S. Supreme Court.
USLAW firm members are experienced in commercial and business law, employment and labor law, litigation and other business-related areas of law.
Firms are admitted to the network following a “substantial due-diligence” process and after being “rigorously reviewed.”
