Commercial Litigation

  • We take pride in assisting each client with pro-active measures to avoid litigation and many times find that the most effective measures are pre-emptive. However, sometimes litigation is the necessary route. That’s when we will provide you with an aggressive, yet practical strategy to pursue your goals.

    Numerous clients who initially sought assistance from the firm due to major conflicts and litigation battles have since continued to retain the firm in the negotiating process – before entering to contracts or relationships. Lawsuits are costly and remind everyone that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

    Our clients appreciate our attentiveness to their goals, our prompt attention, and our strategic advice in managing risk and resolving disputes.  We are knowledgeable about the practices of many in the judiciary, along with the rules and procedures of the courtroom which allow us to provide exceptionally tailored advice.  Our lawyers are highly regarded for their stand-up advocacy in submission of briefs and courtroom presentation.

    We handle litigation in various practice areas – primarily civil matters involving complex commercial litigation.  We represent clients in numerous industries, including, but not limited to, pension systems, automotive suppliers, construction, real estate, gaming, professional services, and consulting.  In addition to state court actions in district and circuit court, the Michigan Court of Appeals and the Michigan Supreme Court, we litigate in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court – Eastern District of Michigan, and in courts in other jurisdictions after being admitted pro hac vice. We handle complex commercial arbitration matters in Michigan and elsewhere. Document management in multi-million dollar lawsuits is second nature to this small, yet extremely organized firm.
