Miller Johnson acquired Detroit-based Lusk Albertson, a law firm that focuses on serving the education sector.
The terms of the acquisition, which is set to close Monday, were not disclosed.
“After a decade of successfully representing education clients all over Michigan, we are thrilled to partner with Miller Johnson to provide our clients with even greater support going forward,” said Kevin T. Sutton, office managing member who will lead the Detroit office. “In making this move, we wanted to find a group that not only had incredible legal talent, but even better people. We’ve found that rare combination with Miller Johnson, and we look forward to continuing our commitment to education in Michigan as part of their team.”
Lusk Albertson’s team will join Miller Johnson. The firm also will add attorneys to its business, corporate, employment, labor and litigation practice areas. The firm’s three statewide offices in Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo and Detroit are now comprised of 105 practicing attorneys.
“This is an exciting step forward in implementing our strategic plan,” said Bob Wolford, external managing member for Miller Johnson. “We are gaining exceptional attorneys and staff who have developed strong relationships and are bringing them together into Miller Johnson’s down-to-earth, down-to-business culture.”
