Banking and Finance Law

I work with Kristen Veresh in the banking practice at Varnum. She works in the Northville/Livonia office. Kristen handles several accounts in my lending portfolio. I appreciate her intelligence, legal knowledge, organizational and communication skills, her responsiveness, and her pleasant demeanor. I work with several other law firms, in the Southeast Michigan area, but none as good as the legal services, and responsiveness, that I get from Kristen. Kristen, and I, also work to refer business back, and forth, to each other. It has been a very rewarding and long-standing relationship. I also trust Varnum to have the breadth to bring in other lawyers, within their firm, to add strength to anything that I am working on. Kristen has called upon lawyers, in other areas of her firm, on many occasions. They are all very knowledgeable, responsive, and pleasant to work with.

Harvery Koning's M&A team at Varnum is first rate. They are pro-active and anticipate issues. They have helped us close key deals under tremendous time pressure.They also are flexible in their billing and are willing to consider arrangements that are not common in the M&A space. Highly recommended.

Commercial Litigation

I am an attorney and I know and have worked with many attorneys in my 32 years of practice. Ron DeWaard and Brion Doyle at Varnum are two of the finest attorneys I have had the privilege to ever work with. They both have my highest personal and professional recommendation.

Litigation - Tax

I've worked with Jeff DeVree for 20 years, 15 of those years at Varnum, mostly for tax planning, particularly for a M&A Transaction that resulted in a large tax savings. Also for company acquisitions and purchase-sale agreements, negotiations with sellers and energy sales & lease agreements. I was never concerned about having Jeff sit with me and negotiate with customer, seller or buyer.
