Law firm hires partner
A local law firm has added a partner who specializes in corporate and securities law.
Warner Norcross & Judd said yesterday that attorney Joscelyn Boucher has joined the firm’s Kalamazoo office after having been a partner at Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn.
She has been practicing law for more than 14 years, starting at Dickinson Wright and moving to Miller Canfield.
“I am thrilled to be joining Warner Norcross,” Boucher said. “The firm is incredibly well-respected in the legal community, particularly in West Michigan, and I am impressed with the collegial and team-oriented focus of the people at this firm.
“I am excited about being part of the growth of the Kalamazoo office.”
In her corporate and securities law practice, Boucher helps companies with strategic alliances, venture capital financing, private placements and other transactions. She advises clients on deal structure and strategy and serves as general counsel for emerging companies focused on life science, biotechnology and pharmaceutical development.
Boucher earned a B.A. in education from the University of Michigan and a J.D. from the University of Michigan Law School, where she was an editor for the Michigan Law Review.
She is a member of the American Bar Association, State Bar of Michigan and the Kalamazoo Bar Association.
Outside the office, Boucher serves on the board of the Stulberg International String Competition and on the Outreach Subcommittee of Michigan Community Resources.
Established in 1931, Warner Norcross & Judd is a corporate law firm with 230 attorneys practicing in eight offices throughout Michigan: Grand Rapids, Southfield, Clinton Township, Midland, Muskegon, Kalamazoo, Holland and Lansing.
