David S. Lefere

Attorney, Of Counsel Grand Rapids, MI

Helping businesses succeed and grow isn’t just a job. It’s a passion, one that’s led me to specialize in business transactions, mergers and acquisitions, private financing structures, along with corporate business law, corporate governance, commercial disputes and negotiations, entity selection and formation, UCC lien filing and enforcement, and real estate law, including real estate sales and acquisitions.

In my spare time, I enjoy fly fishing, golfing, skiing and spending time with my wife and three children. I also serve as a board member of the St. John Vianney Foundation and a coach for Fox Motors Hockey Club.
