“I am a creative, strategic, and result-oriented advocate for my clients.”
I have a wide-ranging litigation practice with an emphasis on business and appellate matters. Regardless of the type of case or the scale of the problem, I start by looking at the big picture and identifying an efficient and effective path to my client’s objective. I am not afraid to use strategies or make arguments that are outside of the box if they serve my client’s goals. I understand what is important to judges, arbitrators, and other decisionmakers, and I work hard to present my clients’ perspectives in a clear, concise, and persuasive manner.
I regularly represent clients, including businesses, their owners, and their officers, in matters involving breaches of contracts, ownership disputes, minority-shareholder oppression claims, trade secrets, intellectual property, noncompete agreements, and employment issues. I also represent broker dealers and investment advisors in litigation, FINRA arbitration proceedings, and regulatory actions. I serve as local counsel to national and multinational corporations in sophisticated litigation in Michigan state and federal courts.
Additionally, I have successfully represented numerous clients in appeals in state and federal courts. I have pursued and defended appeals involving diverse issues from business disputes to domestic-relations cases to medical-malpractice actions. Whatever the case may be, my goal is always to reach an optimal result based on pragmatic and efficient representation.
