Thank you to OESA's Ginger Juncker  and Drew Rhodes for the opportunity.

The Original Equipment Suppliers Association (OESA) champions the business interests of more than 430 member organizations.  Since 1998, the association is committed to addressing issues of common concern throughout the supply chain, and advocating on behalf of the automotive supplier community. 

OESA strives to foster collaboration throughout the supply chain and help members make critical business decisions. Through industry events, peer group councils, research and analysis, OESA provides relevant, timely and unique information and resources to and for the automotive supplier industry. 

James E. DeLine focuses his practice on complex business litigation, counseling automotive suppliers, and antitrust law.  Jim has extensive experience in all phases of state and federal litigation as well as domestic and international arbitrations.  

He regularly represents clients in several areas of law, including contract and UCC matters, automotive supply chain disputes, injunctions, product liability, antitrust, business torts, shareholder rights, creditor’s rights, and appeals.  Jim’s successful representation of an international automobile distributor against a global automobile manufacturer received acclaim as one of the largest verdicts in Michigan for 2012.
