Bodman is pleased to announce that our new Grand Rapids office opened on May 1, 2017. The office is temporarily located in the Calder Plaza Building in downtown Grand Rapids and will move to permanent quarters later in the year.

Grand Rapids, the second largest city in Michigan, has a strong and diverse economy and a rich history. In the late 19th century, the city's position near the Great Lakes and Michigan’s vast forests made it a natural furniture manufacturing hub, earning Grand Rapids the nickname "Furniture City." Furniture production is still a component of the region’s vibrant business community, which also includes a thriving financial services sector, a significant manufacturing base, a strong health care segment, and a growing high tech component. Tourism is also a major economic contributor, and the city's burgeoning craft beer industry led Grand Rapids to be voted "Beer City USA" in 2013.

The city's cultural institutions make it an attractive place to work, visit and live. Grand Rapids has hosted a multitude of art festivals, highlighted by ArtPrize, a nineteen-day long celebration of art in which the artworks are spread throughout public spaces and a public vote decides the winner. The city is also home to popular art and history museums, including the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Museum.

We are pleased that Floyd E. Gates, Jr., a highly regarded Grand Rapids attorney with more than 18 years of experience representing financial institutions, insurance carriers, and a broad range of other businesses, has joined Bodman and will lead the new Grand Rapids office. We look forward to serving our clients with operations in West Michigan with even better responsiveness and efficiency from our new base in Grand Rapids.
