I’m pleased to announce that one of Michigan’s premier business journals, DBUSINESS, recently announced its 2010 “Top Lawyers” in metropolitan Detroit – and three of the principals with Wright Penning & Beamer made the list.
DBUSINESS compiles its list as a resource and reference guide for its readers. Selection criteria include:
The list was published in the journal’s November/December 2009 edition.
According to the publication, selected lawyers “possess the highest professional ability and ethical standards.”
Dirk Beamer, Lee Flaherty and I were selected this year. Beamer for his expertise in business and commercial litigation; Flaherty for her work with non-profits and charitable organizations, and I was recognized for business and estate planning.
As a founding shareholder of the firm I’ve focused my practice areas primarily in planning for business entities including family businesses, estate planning for business owners, individuals, families with special needs children, and succession planning for family cottages and farms. Through these practice areas our firm has become a leading resource for individual and business clients.
Beamer oversees our firm’s diverse litigation practice, focusing primarily on business and commercial litigation. He spearheads the firm’s efforts in insurance law, unfair competition, trademark infringement, employment matters and contract disputes. Dirk has litigated in state and federal courts across the country. He also counsels business owners and managers concerning employment practices and management.
In addition to her work with non-profits, Lee Flaherty is well versed in real estate, business law, estate planning and probate. Lee’s business expertise encompasses the support of ongoing businesses, business purchases and sales, and representation in commercial real estate transactions. Her estate planning practice focuses on the preparation of a wide variety of trusts and other documents to assist clients in avoiding probate, preserving assets and minimizing taxes.
I take pride in my colleagues’ accomplishments and wanted to share this good news with you. As a firm we continue to strive daily to deliver the highest quality legal services to our clients throughout Michigan and beyond.
