- Creating, running, and counseling closely-held businesses, large and small, in varying sectors of the economy, from start-ups local in nature to enterprises with a national and international scope;
- Structuring, negotiating and consummating a wide array of commercial, financial and real estate transactions, from complex, multi-state mergers and acquisitions to single parcel real estate sales and leases;
- Designing, preparing and administering estate and succession plans in various contexts, from business “buy-sell” arrangements to individual trusts, wills, estate tax counseling and probate administration.
- Strategizing, advocating and resolving a myriad of individual and commercial disputes, through private negotiation, mediation/arbitration and formal litigation. Our lawyers have argued and appeared at every level of the State and Federal court system, from the United States Supreme Court to local State courts in southeast Michigan.
Our firm is dedicated to personal service, and we work closely with each of our clients to find practical solutions tailored to their specific needs. We have consciously chosen to maintain our size and status as a “boutique” firm, as we believe it enhances our focus on innovation and client-specific effectiveness. In matters requiring narrow specialty expertise that our lawyers do not have, we have maintained strategic relationships with other law firms across the country, giving us access to lawyers whom we believe are best-equipped to help us meet our clients’ needs.
Our firm and our lawyers have consistently been designated as “Preeminent” and among the “Top-Rated” lawyers in the United States by the nationally recognized Martindale-Hubbell attorney rating service. These ratings are based on confidential evaluations from other attorneys who are familiar with our work, and we are committed to maintain that high standard of service and excellence in each representation that we undertake.
