Overview

Now in its 22nd year as a labor and employment “boutique,” our firm is widely known in Michigan, the Midwest, and throughout the country for its specialized and high-level management-side practice. We are also known for our excellent clients, including Fortune 500 companies, start-up and small-to-mid-sized businesses, healthcare and educational institutions, non-profits, executives, courts, and law firms, and for achieving excellent outcomes for them.

Our practice covers the gamut of federal and state employment and labor law, from preventive counseling to litigation to appeals. A sizable segment is complex multi-state litigation including class actions. Our appellate practice has long been instrumental in establishing legal principles of major significance for employers.

Many of our clients have seen that, with the high level of sophistication, substantive knowledge, trial experience, and efficiency our practice offers, it is more cost-effective for us to handle their labor and employment work regionally or throughout the country. We offer better and more timely service at Midwestern rates. 

For years our firm has been designated by Chambers as one of the top employment and labor practices based in Michigan, and in recent years as the sole top-ranked firm. All of our principals are ranked by Chambers. A high percentage of our lawyers have been inducted into the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. All of our lawyers have devoted their careers to this specialized field.
