Automotive Counseling & Litigation

No other industry in Michigan generates as much need for seasoned legal counsel as the automotive industry.

Privately Owned Business Disputes

Owners of privately owned businesses often encounter intracompany disputes that arise as a result of their capital and management structures. Shareholders in corporations and members in limited liability companies often serve as their company’s principal management level employees. They often wear several hats which expose them to special risks and require that they abide specific duties and responsibilities controlled by state laws.   Learn More

Employment, Trade Secret & Non-Compete Counseling & Litigation

HHBJ works closely with clients to ensure that they have established policies and practices that help avoid costly employment disputes and litigation. We counsel clients through difficult employment issues to ensure that, if litigation does occur, they are in the best possible position to successfully defend the claim. Learn More

Class Actions

Class action lawsuits create risk and challenges for businesses that can easily overshadow the underlying merits of a particular dispute. Companies’ reputations may be called into question and public relations issues abound when there are challenges to new products and ongoing business practices. And the cost associated with such litigation – particularly with respect to e-discovery – often outpaces that of any regular case. Learn More

We have decades of experience handling complex and unique commercial disputes in the insurance industry. We have helped policyholders and insurers address claims related to coverage, breach of contract, trade practices, fraud investigations, and allocation of risk. Learn More

Above and beyond the experience needed for contract disputes, it takes particular expertise to litigate conflicts under Article 2 of the Uniform Commercial Code (“UCC”). These disputes go to the core of any manufacturing company’s business – transactions in the supply chain. Learn More
