Kerr Russell member Mike Carroll (construction) ... one of Detroit's Real Men (who) Wear Pink

August 24, 2018

We are certainly proud of Kerr Russell member Mike Carroll (construction) who has been chosen as one of the American Cancer Society’s “Real Men (who) Wear Pink.” The kickoff event was held at The Westin Book Cadillac Detroit on August 23, and, while Mike had a conflict, his “campaign manager” Roy Sexton represented. You can show your support here.

Why Mike Wears Pink
“I know how deeply this insidious and challenging disease can upend a life and a family. We can do better. We must do better. I wish my dad were still here as I wish for anyone who has lost a parent or loved one to cancer. It’s devastating,” 

Why Mike Supports the American Cancer Society
“My little niece said, ‘Uncle Mike … I’m glad to see someone appreciate your fashion sense … and that you’re secure enough in your masculinity to wear pink!’  Well, pink is a great color, regardless of gender, and darn trendy these days, so I’m up to the challenge. Most importantly, I’m thrilled to be helping this important cause, I’m humbled to be asked, and I’m looking forward to meeting the other gentlemen contributing to this campaign.  It’s going to be great fun!”


Mike maintains a general commercial litigation practice. He has substantial experience handling a wide variety of commercial litigation matters, including automotive supplier cases, non-automotive Uniform Commercial Code cases, employment and labor law matters, shareholder oppression, products liability, commercial leases and other real estate-oriented litigation, and creditor’s rights enforcement, including realization against collateral.

A particular focus of Mike’s practice is construction law. He is extremely familiar with all legal aspects of construction projects, ranging from contract negotiations to dispute resolution, including the use of litigation, mediation and arbitration techniques. Mike represents a broad range of clients in the construction area, including suppliers, subcontractors, general contractors, owners, design professionals and sureties.

Mike has been named a “Michigan Super Lawyer” by Thomson Reuters, one of U.S. News & World Report "Best Lawyers in America," and a "Top Lawyer" by dbusinessMagazine. He has achieved AV preeminent ranking from Martindale Hubbell, reflecting the highest standards of legal ability, professional ethics and integrity. He is a Fellow of the Construction Lawyers Society of America.
