Miller Canfield Names Wendy Richards as Detroit Resident Director

March 23, 2023

Miller Canfield is pleased to announce that Wendy Wrosch Richards will serve as the resident director of the firm’s Detroit office.

Richards is Miller Canfield’s Pro Bono Counsel and a member of the firm’s Litigation and Dispute Resolution Group. As the leader of the firm’s pro bono initiatives, Richards has taken what was an already active pro bono team and turned it into a nationally recognized program. Her efforts have earned her an invitation to serve on the prestigious Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Executive Committee.

Richards is active in professional and civic groups such as the State Bar of Michigan Access to Justice Statewide Steering Committee, Goodwill Detroit, and the Association of Pro Bono Counsel, where she has served as the co-chair of its Voting Rights Task Force for over six years. Richards also co-chairs Miller Canfield’s Election Law group.

“Wendy says she is eager to lead the office through the continued transition to the workplace of the future and build and preserve Miller Canfield’s culture, relationships and friendships, which are at the center of why we love working for Miller Canfield,” said Miller Canfield CEO Megan Norris. “Her thoughtful and enthusiastic approach to everything she does will benefit the firm, our staff and attorneys, and ultimately, our clients, and the firm is thankful for her willingness to serve in this role.”

Richards succeeds Joseph Vernon, who is stepping aside after serving as resident director since 2018.
