Attorneys named to statewide class of Up & Coming Lawyers
A pair of local attorneys have been named to a statewide class of Up & Coming Lawyers.
Michigan Lawyers Weekly recently named Meredith Ervine of Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn’s Grand Rapids office and Amanda Narvaes of Drew Cooper & Anding in Grand Rapids to its 2017 class of Up & Coming Lawyers.
Both attorneys received their awards at the publication’s ninth-annual Up & Coming Lawyers luncheon and awards celebration at the Detroit Marriott in Troy this month.
Michigan Lawyers Weekly says the award is given to legal practitioners in their first 10 years of practice “who are establishing a name for themselves, go above and beyond and display ambition, drive, determination and accomplishments that set them apart among their peers.”
Ervine is a corporate attorney for Honigman who focuses on securities and corporate governance matters. She counsels public company clients on securities law and rules of exchanges, governance best practices and transactional and general corporate matters.
Honigman says Ervine has worked on more than 65 securities offerings, involving more than $11.3 billion.
Previously, she practiced at Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman in New York for six years.
She graduated from the Maurine A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and the University of Michigan.
Amanda Narvaes has been practicing at Drew Cooper & Anding for seven years.
She focuses on civil litigation that encompasses areas of complex commercial ligation, lender liability, copyright litigation and consumer protection.
Narvaes represents clients in Michigan trial courts across the state and in the Michigan Court of Appeals and before federal district courts in western and eastern Michigan.
She graduated from WMU-Thomas M. Cooley Law School and Carleton College.
