A creative problem solver and aggressive litigator to resolve your business disputes in your favor, one way or another.
I am an experienced New York trained business litigator and trial attorney, helping clients identify goals and win. By always working to see any matter from my clients’ perspectives and goals, while being open to understanding the other side’s viewpoint, I maximize results for my clients. I offer thoughtful, pragmatic advice and aggressive representation to clients in disputes, litigation, negotiations and business management.
I resolve disputes where practical, and aggressively prosecute and prepare matters for trial where settlement is not practical. While most lawyers aren’t prepared to take most cases to trial, only attorneys prepared to take a case to trial are likely to extract an acceptable resolution from the other side. Because I understand what it takes to prepare and try a case, I am better able to settle cases when the time is right.
I regularly counsel clients in matters of restrictive covenants, trade secrets, employee raiding, unfair competition, labor and employment issues, as well as business organization and dissolution, licensing, technology, real estate, contract and business torts.
Practice area focuses on commercial litigation and business disputes generally centered on contract and business tort disputes, including:

I found myself in a precarious legal situation in which I needed clarity, sound advice, and a person who I could trust to help. Alex was my first call. Always available for a call or email, his responsive nature and strong understanding of my situation was excellent. Subsequently I have asked for Alex’s help on more day to day situations, and he is more than willing to give me direction or personalize a solution for a reasonable fee. Hopefully I won’t have another major problem, but if I do, Alex will again be my first phone call.
Alex is a wonderful business attorney and an even better person. I wish we lived closer because I know that we could become great friends.
Alex Stotland is one of Michigan’s finest lawyers. I have had the opportunity to work with him on many occasions, and am continuously impressed by Alex’s skill, trustworthiness, intelligence, and ability to communicate. I highly recommend Alex to anyone seeking a top lawyer in the field of trade secrets and commercial litigation.
Alex is a consummate professional. I’ve had Alex represent me on a number of business matters and his advice and actions were always expertly informed and, more so, legally appropriate. Always available, and always ready to explain and simplify the issues, I depend on him for both business opportunities, and emergencies all the same.
