A Boutique Practice Focused on Business Litigation and Transactions
I am a Michigan attorney and focus my practice on representing businesses and entrepreneurs in business and commercial litigation cases, as well as a wide variety of transactional and contract matters.
Business and Commercial Litigation Cases
A large part of my practice is devoted to representing clients in business and commercial litigation cases of all kinds. This means I help my clients resolve business and commercial disputes in state and federal court, outside of court, and in alternative dispute resolution venues such as mediation, facilitation, and arbitration.
My litigation cases include business and commercial disputes, breach of contract cases, business torts, trade secret and non-compete litigation, temporary and preliminary injunction proceedings, collection cases, employment matters, real estate disputes, trust, estate and probate litigation, and many other kinds of legal disputes.
Business Contracts and Transactional Matters
In addition to my business litigation practice, I also provide legal representation to business clients in a wide variety of transactional and contract matters. I represent clients at all stages of the business cycle, and help them with all kinds of legal needs. For example, I help clients set up corporations and limited liability companies (LLC's) and provide them with guidance through the often confusing number of issues faced at the beginning of a business. I also counsel clients on employment issues, non-compete agreements, franchise matters, real estate purchases, leases and contracts, as well as many other kinds of business contracts and transactions.
Additional Legal Services
In addition to my specialized business law practice, I also provide individual clients with personal legal services such as representation in divorce and other kinds of family cases, as well as the preparation of estate planning documents like wills, revocable living trusts, durable powers of attorney, and health care powers of attorney and living wills. I also represent clients in Michigan probate administration cases.
Focused on Helping Clients Achieve Their Goals
I understand that clients come to me to help them solve their problems and get results, and I focus all of my efforts on working with my clients to achieve the results they seek. My goal is to provide each of my clients with the highest quality, specialized representation possible, whether they need representation in a hotly contested business litigation case or assistance in resolving a thorny commercial transactional matter.
That said, sometimes a client will come to me and, for whatever reason, ask me to help them get a result that is simply not realistic or reasonable. In that case, I will do my best to accurately and honestly advise the client regarding the strength of their case and the realistic results that the client can expect to achieve in their particular situation. I am always honest and straightforward with my clients and recognize that sometimes the best thing I can do for a client is to tell them that what they want to do is a bad idea or not feasible.
Fair and Reasonable Fees
Although quality legal representation is never going to be cheap, I work hard to be as efficient and effective as possible in my clients' matters and to always charge them a fair and reasonable fee. Although I usually provide business and commercial litigation representation to clients on an hourly fee basis, I am always happy to discuss alternative fee arrangements, including contingency fees in the appropriate cases.
