Experienced Attorneys

We are committed to adding and effectively integrating experienced attorneys into the firm and, in recent years, have successfully attracted attorneys from major law firms in money-center cities.  Having worked elsewhere, many experienced attorneys have a unique perspective on the tremendous advantages and opportunities available by practicing at our firm. In turn, Honigman recognizes the tremendous value, experience and contributions that experienced attorneys offer.

Honigman has a continuing commitment to attracting experienced attorneys at all levels. Our firm handles complex and challenging legal matters from our Michigan offices for clients across the United States and in many foreign countries.
