Warner Norcross Sponsors Newest Grand Rapids' Sister City

Warner Norcross & Judd LLP is sponsoring Grand Rapids' newest sister city: Zapopan, Mexico.

The relationship will be formalized during Festival, a three-day celebration of arts and culture slated June 6-8 in downtown Grand Rapids. Zapopan is the fifth city to establish a global "sister" relationship with Grand Rapids, which is the headquarters of Warner Norcross.

"Warner Norcross is pleased to sponsor the newest sister city of Grand Rapids," said Craig N. Meurlin, chair of the International Business Practice Group at Warner Norcross. "The program is dedicated to establishing meaningful relationships between like-minded locations with the goal of promoting mutual respect, understanding and cooperation.

"Our firm has a large and growing international law practice. Supporting this program will strengthen the ties that our firm has to Mexico and to Latin America – and that our community has to the larger globe. We look forward to traveling to Zapopan later this year for the second ceremony to celebrate this new relationship."

The International Business Practice Group at Warner Norcross regularly advises clients on mergers and acquisitions, joint ventures and subsidiaries, importing and exporting, foreign labor laws, intellectual property protection, licensing, international banking and tax, and related matters.
