December 22, 2022
The law firm of Warner Norcross + Judd LLP and the Original Equipment Suppliers Association invite automotive supplier executives to the “2023 Automotive Supplier Legal Trends” seminar to be held on Wednesday, Jan. 25.

Warner attorneys will lead sessions in this annual event focused on legal issues and trends that supplier executives should be aware of and prepare for as the industry continues to transform into 2023. Held at the Michigan State University Management Training Center at 811 W. Square Lake Road in Troy, the event begins with registration, networking and a continental breakfast at 8 a.m. and concludes at 10:30 a.m.
