  • Complete victory at trial on behalf of five directors in a contentious board dispute
  • Secured a victory for a software manufacturer in arbitration after a successful motion for summary disposition
  • Successfully defended a fortune 500 company before the EEOC, which found plaintiff’s claims lacked merit

  • Represented over two-dozen high-level employees in arbitration against their former employer for breach of contract and fraud, resulting in a favorable settlement

In addition to his business litigation practice, Nick has also had the privilege of representing victims of sexual abuse against institutions that fail to protect the children in their care.   He recently secured a multi-million dollar recovery from an educational institution in the Eastern United States on behalf of a victim of childhood sexual abuse and is currently representing another victim on a case of first impression before the Michigan Supreme Court.  He has authored a chapter on “Corporate Litigation” in California Business Litigation published by ALM.
