A Better Partnership

Closely Held Businesses


Warner Norcross + Judd's attorneys have experience in virtually all legal matters for businesses, including corporate and general business law, human resources, employee benefits and related matters. But we also bring tremendous practical knowledge about family and closely held businesses to the table. 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.

Our firm also 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.
