Alari K. Adams has been spending an increasing amount of time in downtown Detroit over the last few years, so it’s little wonder she moved her legal firm down here with her.
ASquared Legal Group
, formerly based in Bloomfield Hills, now calls the Motor City's Central Business District home. Adams, the firm's managing attorney, moved to downtown Detroit in recent years. After a few months living there, she knew she would be bringing her law firm with her.
"I'm able to hop on the People Mover to get to work now," Adams says.
Adams got her start practicing corporate and employee law at a firm in Grand Blanc. She started ASquared Legal Group four years ago as her primary way to practice law with small businesses. The company focuses on advising businesses with their legal matters and human resources management.
"I get much more enjoyment out of small business practice," Adams says. "I help them grow their businesses and they help grow my business, too."
ASquared Legal Group currently employs two people after Adams hired an assistant over the last year to help her juggle the growing caseload. Adams wants her law firm to continue growing downtown and hopes to eventually add more staff.
