Honigman LLP, Interlaw’s partner firm in Detroit, USA, has announced that law firm founder and admired practitioner and community leader, Ira Jaffe, has joined the law firm as distinguished counsel in its corporate and private client practices.

After retiring in 2021 from both the law firm Jaffe, Raitt, Heuer & Weiss - which he founded in 1968 - and The Fisher Group, LLC, the Max and Marjorie Fisher family office, he formed his own consulting business, Ira Jaffe Consulting LLC. Through this firm, he consulted with a small group of high-net-worth clients on the non-legal family driven aspects of succession planning, business planning, estate planning, family and trust disputes, non-profit and foundation involvement and corporate board membership.

“We are honored to have Ira join Honigman as distinguished counsel, a special Honigman status reserved for attorneys who are widely recognized in the legal and business communities as preeminent practitioners,” said Honigman CEO and Chair David Foltyn. “Ira has over 50 years of experience working with and advising some of the nation’s most sophisticated and successful individuals, businesses, foundations and non-profit community organizations, a background and skill set that will prove invaluable to the many Honigman clients he will come to serve. We are delighted and honored that he will continue his remarkable career with us.”
