It is always our objective to help clients solve problems as quickly and economically as possible. In addition to our practice in state and federal courts, we also represent clients in alternative dispute resolution forums such as administrative proceedings, mediation and arbitration tribunals. Our litigators are often asked to serve our community as mediators and arbitrators.

Finally, a growing part of our practice involves work to minimize the risks and exposure of doing business in today's litigious world. Our attorneys work with our clients to define, assess and minimize litigation risks and to develop programs to help them comply with specific contractual requirements and with the laws and regulations that affect their business.

  • Court Considers Chapter 7 Trustee's Ability to Sell LLC Property in Sole Members Bankruptcy

    Michael I. Conlon

    A bankruptcy trustee has the right to liquidate any property of a Chapter 7 Debtor subject to claimed exemptions and liens. Does this right extend to a membership interest in an LLC where the sole member files bankruptcy? The Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Michigan addressed this issue recently in In re Hopkins, Bankr. W.D. Mich. (Feb. 2, 2012).
