Civil Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

Civil Litigation and Alternative Dispute Resolution

Litigation is one of the most difficult situations a client must confront. We believe that careful investigation and analysis, together with the effective application of an agreed upon strategy, can make a great difference not only in how a client deals with litigation, but also in its outcome. We have an experienced staff of Michigan litigation attorneys and paralegals who represent clients in civil litigation in all state and federal courts. We are experts in most types of business litigation, employment litigation and class action defense. Although most of our litigation is in Michigan, our attorneys have appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Michigan Supreme Court, the U.S. Tax Court, numerous federal and state courts of appeal and trial courts. We have frequently been in the forefront of changes in the law as part of the vigorous representation of our clients.

A key technique in dealing with conflict resolution is alternative dispute resolution. We are on the leading edge of alternative dispute resolution through the development and implementation of collaborative non-adversarial models of conflict management. We are experienced in arbitration, mediation and facilitation procedures in domestic and international disputes. Using these methods, our attorneys have successfully resolved complex commercial, employment, class action defense and business disputes and have saved our clients hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal fees.

In litigation matters, our goal is to achieve results which meet our clients’ business objectives. We believe it is essential that our clients become our partners in litigation matters so that we are always moving in the direction of the desired outcome. Although, not every dispute can be resolved without a trial, when litigation is the only appropriate way to reach a conclusion, our Ann Arbor, Birmingham and Detroit litigation attorneys provide zealous, aggressive and cost effective representation.
