Business and Corporate Services


Warner Norcross + Judd was founded as a corporate law firm in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Business and corporate law remains at the core of our Firm's practice.

In Michigan and beyond, our law firm has unparalleled experience in all aspects of corporate transactions, including mergers and acquisitions, reorganizations, tender offers, hostile takeovers and going-private transactions. We routinely advise businesses in all areas of commercial transactions, antitrust, franchising, dealership and distributorship law, and licensing.

The firm has some of the leading securities attorneys in Michigan. We have broad experience in SEC reporting, Sarbanes-Oxley compliance, asset and stock transactions, investor relations and corporate governance matters. We regularly advise general counsel and boards of directors on non-transactional matters, including takeover and proxy defense, disclosure issues, executive compensation and fiduciary duties.
