A Better Partnership

Business Start-Ups and Early Round Financing


Warner Norcross + Judd attorneys have experience in all the areas that matter to any early-stage businesses, including corporate and general business law, laws relating to securities and the raising of capital, human resources, employee benefits and related matters. But our attorneys also bring to the table practical knowledge about family businesses and closely held businesses. A significant change takes place when you combine family and business. Our law firm understands that and can address the unique issues that present themselves.

Warner is skilled in laws pertaining to partnerships and limited liability companies. We work closely with other practice groups in our law firm to provide valuable counsel in areas that directly affect family and closely held businesses, including estate planning, income-tax planning and retirement-plan design. We have worked with hundreds of businesses, in Michigan and beyond, to develop and implement succession-planning strategies that keep business goals in mind, yet understand and respect the dynamics of family and of closely knit management teams.

For early-stage businesses, our attorneys have worked on all aspects of "friends and family," angel and venture capital financing on behalf of both the operating companies and the investors. That includes not just individual investors, but funds and institutions too. We have represented Grand Angels, an angel-investor group based in West Michigan, as well as local seed capital and hedge funds in the formation and investing businesses. We have also represented companies that receive funds from such organizations.
