“I take great satisfaction in delivering exceptional value to my business clients, whether I am handling a litigation matter or a business issue. To me, that means not only providing excellent work product at a fair price, but genuinely caring about the clients’ needs and well-being. Today’s business environment is incredibly challenging and stressful. I like my clients to feel that once they involve me in a matter, they no longer need to worry about it.”
- Michael C. Gibbons

Mike has been admitted to practice law in Michigan for over 20 years with a focus on business
and commercial law and litigation. While a substantial part of his practice relates to the
automotive industry, Mike has a diverse client base that includes non-profits; closely and
privately held businesses; and publicly traded corporations in the manufacturing, distribution,
finance, service and retail sectors. He regularly counsels clients on a wide range of business
matters, including business formation and succession planning, corporate governance, buy-sell
agreements and minority protections, complex transactions, employment matters, and buying
and selling businesses.

Mike also has extensive experience representing businesses (and their owners) in litigating
complex business and commercial disputes. Those matters include purchasing and supply
disputes, business break-ups and shareholder/member litigation, trade secret and
noncompete litigation, debtor/ creditor disputes, and employment litigation. Mike litigates
throughout the U.S. in federal and state courts, both at the trial and appellate court levels, and
in arbitration proceedings. His litigation experience is invaluable in helping clients minimize any
litigation exposure, if not avoid it altogether.

Mike speaks frequently at seminars and programs concerning various aspects of business and
commercial law and litigation, and he has authored and published numerous articles and
materials on those topics.

Mike is a graduate of the Detroit College of Law/Michigan State University College of Law), and
received his Bachelor degree in economics from the University of Michigan.
