Founded in 1951, Sullivan, Ward, Asher & Patton P.C. is a business and litigation law firm serving national corporations, businesses of all sizes, families and individuals in a wide variety of legal matters. We assist clients across the country from our offices in Southfield and Grand Rapids, Michigan. Our firm numbers nearly 50 attorneys, supported by 45 staff and legal professionals.

We are known for the diverse backgrounds and broad work experience of our attorneys. Combined with our legal acumen and training, these attributes bring an industry insider’s perspective to the practice of law. It is the hallmark of our firm, and a reflection of our founders’ philosophy of “doing what we know best.”

Our attorneys possess experience beyond book training, including real-world work experience and accumulated knowledge relevant to their areas of practice. Before practicing law, many of us owned, operated or directed family businesses, oversaw corporations, founded start-ups and ran entrepreneurial enterprises. We worked for engineering concerns, insurance companies, banks and other financial institutions. Our attorneys previously served in municipal government, state legislature and legislative agencies; were commissioned and non-commissioned officers in the military; and managed and directed healthcare institutions and charitable organizations.

At Sullivan Ward, we surround ourselves with like-minded people who appreciate our roll-up-the-sleeves environment. From attorneys to staff, each day we re-dedicate ourselves to the success of our clients. Their hard work inspires, motivates and challenges us to demand equal measure of ourselves. For every one of us, it is the very reason we do what we do.
