Kalamazoo

Local Representation

Warner established a Kalamazoo office in October of 2013, making it our eighth office in the state of Michigan and home to some of our most experienced attorneys. Located in the city’s thriving business district, we opened our doors to better serve the Kalamazoo-area clients in banking, higher education, health care, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, manufacturing, estate planning, business succession planning, charitable gift planning, nonprofit planning, family businesses, craft beer and real estate.

Some of our top litigators call Kalamazoo home. They have served as national discovery and defense counsel for global Fortune 500 companies, handling complex litigation in multiple jurisdictions. One of our partners has traveled to Guantanamo Bay where she served as an official observer for the American Bar Association during the trials of the alleged perpetrators of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Our attorneys are deeply engaged in the fabric of the Kalamazoo community, serving on boards that support the visual and performing arts, education, faith interests, women’s issues, children’s matters and disability rights.

Kalamazoo is the base for our Data Solutions team, a group of experienced attorneys who provide an integrated team approach to full life-cycle support for business data. Our records management specialists create comprehensive plans that allow businesses to properly manage data with programs that save money and reduce risk. Our eDiscovery team enables clients to take control of their electronic documents, prepare for litigation and develop strategies that meet compliance requirements – without breaking the bank.

And, we are a phone call away from our 200+ attorney network across our seven other offices throughout the state. Whatever your legal need, we have the people, experience and resources to provide exceptional service and value. At Warner, we get it right the first time.
