In a profession where people make the difference, Kerr Russell is among the very best. We devote all of our energy, skill and considerable resources to protecting our clients and accomplishing their goals as quickly and economically as possible.

Kerr Russell is a firm of intelligent and creative problem-solvers, who apply ingenuity and fresh approaches to legal challenges, despite their size or complexity. Our professional abilities are enhanced, and our efficiencies increased, by our state-of-the-art technology information systems that allow us to work in real time.

We have handled the cases related to the most significant developments in business and health care law in Michigan. Our trial lawyers are frequently involved in some of the most notable commercial cases in the state, as well as in other jurisdictions. Our lawyers have been recognized for their achievements through their election to leadership positions in prominent professional associations and bar committees that serve to set policy. In the business and legal communities, Kerr Russell is respected for our high standards, the quality of our work, and our professional ethics and integrity.

What most distinguishes Kerr Russell, however, is our uncompromising adherence to delivering superb client service. We keep our clients informed every step of the way, and we are always available. No matter the day or hour, our clients can always reach us – wherever in the world they are.
