Howard and Howard is a proud sponsor of the Michigan Wine Collaborative (MWC). Just like no one person can be an expert in everything from grape growing to marketing to filing business taxes, no one lawyer can be an expert on all the above-referenced topics either. The partners at Howard & Howard, a business law firm, come from an array of business backgrounds, with diverse experiences, and unique practice areas. We would be honored to help your business navigate this complicated legal environment, so that you can continue to make the Michigan wine industry what it has become and beyond.
Mark Vanneste of Howard & Howard is an honorary board member of MWC, holding our official Legal Seat. Reach out to him HERE!

Migratory Bird Management– Wild Goose Chase, Inc (WGC) was founded in 1998 by Susan Hagberg, who was managing commercial landscaping accounts in the Chicagoland’s commercial real estate market. During this time, Sue began to realize that there was a real need for Canada goose control services. As there were no options available locally for her landscape clients Sue took the initiative to research how to best manage Canada geese in an urban environment. Then, she implemented a business model that focused on providing safe and humane Canada goose control with the use of trained border collies to harass geese off properties. We specialize in bird control in every possible setting you can imagine …from Refineries, Industrial, Multi- housing Commercial office and of course Agriculture. We have been utilizing the AVX Mark II laser systems since 2015 to help resolve bird issues with Avian-flu that impacted the Poultry/Egg producing industry back in 2015. CLICK HERE to learn more
