Taft Detroit Welcomes Attorneys Nicholas Binder and Aaron Boey

Taft Detroit, with legal offices in nine national markets supported by nearly 900 attorneys in every aspect of modern business, announces the addition of Attorneys Nicholas Binder and Aaron Boey.

In Taft Detroit’s latest expansion, an experienced corporate attorney, Binder, will advise clients on corporate governance, operational and restructuring issues. Meanwhile, Boey will represent clients in family law, providing comprehensive and personalized support. Boey’s extensive experience includes complex custody cases, high-asset divorces, child and spousal support, pre-and post-marital agreements, and enforcement.

“Nicholas brings a wealth of experience to provide clients with sound advice and effective execution in the field of bankruptcy and related restructuring,” said Mark Cooper, partner-in-charge of Taft Detroit. “His expertise will help clients find fair and equitable solutions to the complexities involved.”

Binder previously worked as an attorney with Kirkland & Ellis where he gained broad experience as a member of the firm’s transactional group. Binder served as a judicial extern for the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit for the Hon. David McKeague and as a research extern for the Michigan Court of Appeals.

Binder received his Bachelor of Arts in Kinesiology and his MBA from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario. He earned his law degree Summa Cum Laude from Michigan State University College of Law, where he was valedictorian and a contributing editor of the Michigan State Law Review.

Boey, a native of Michigan, began his legal career as a commercial litigator at national AmLaw 100 and AmLaw 200 law firms, where he handled complex commercial cases before shifting focus to family law.

“Aaron exemplifies the creativity, compassion and experience Taft Detroit seeks, especially in an area as critical and intensive as family law,” said Cooper. “He remains results-oriented while deftly navigating the emotional elements of these cases. Aaron advocates for our clients and provides clarity and confidence at challenging times in their lives.”

He attended Michigan State University College of Law, where he served as a Student Law Clerk for the Hon. Rosemarie E. Aquilina, 30th Circuit Court for Ingham County, Michigan. Boey obtained his bachelor’s degree from Madonna University and interned with the Hon. Laura R. Mack (Ret.), then Chief Judge of the 29th District Court in Wayne, Michigan.
