We are thrilled to announce that Wendolyn Wrosch Richards has rejoined us at Miller Canfield in the role of Pro Bono Counsel, a new position in the firm.

“The creation of the Pro Bono Counsel position is a reflection of Miller Canfield’s serious commitment to supporting pro bono services, and our investment in the communities where we work and live,” said Miller Canfield CEO Mike McGee. “During the past year, the firm has contributed more than $1.8 million to pro bono endeavors, including the more than 5,000 hours of pro bono services our attorneys have performed. Under Wendy’s leadership, we can do even more.”

Richards previously worked as a senior litigation attorney, spending nine years working on numerous multimillion-dollar actions involving securities, intellectual property and general complex litigation.

In 2013, she left the firm to work for a Michigan nonprofit focused on improving communities through pro bono legal and technical services to nonprofits. There she helped launch the Small Business Legal Academy Detroit and led initiatives to develop community support for fundraising and entrepreneurship in underserved areas. She is active in professional and civic groups such as the State Bar of Michigan Justice Initiative, Pro Bono Initiative Committee, New Economy Initiative’s Neighborhood Business Initiative Worktable and Greening of Detroit Policy and Advocacy Committee.

In addition to her work as pro bono counsel at Miller Canfield, Richards will also work in the firm’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution group.
