Dawda Mann is dedicated to helping businesses and the individuals who own them. We are located in Bloomfield Hills, Mich., with a clientele of Fortune 500 companies, financial institutions, publicly and privately owned companies of varied sizes; and emerging businesses located throughout the United States. We also represent many individuals in their tax, estate and personal planning matters.
As globalization makes the business world a smaller place, we strive to meet the national and global needs of our clients. In an effort to meet those needs, we use a wide range of internal and external resources, including in-house attorneys that speak Spanish, German and French. Additionally, we are fluent in the complex language of business.
Unlike many business firms, we do not want to be all things to all people. We offer our clients the expertise of a large law firm and the flexibility of a small firm.
