Warner Successfully Resolves Complex Family Business Dispute

Warner represented the family patriarch in a generational dispute regarding the ownership and control of one of the marquee, family-owned businesses in West Michigan. There were multiple cases in multiple courts that involved highly complex estate-planning issues, family law issues, tax issues, fiduciary duty issues, valuation issues and corporate governance issues, along with very challenging family dynamics. Warner’s creative approach to problem-solving and deep bench of experienced attorneys, working as a team across all these disciplines, helped the client achieve a global resolution - one that at the outset appeared to be impossible.
