Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Legal Services

Litigation and Dispute Resolution

Kerr Russell attorneys are regarded as formidable advocates in the courtroom and around the negotiating table, and we are involved in all manner of disputes across our practice areas.

We bring significant resources to bear when our clients need us, whether that means defending them against claims or enforcing their rights. However, because we approach litigation as a final option, we are equally adept at achieving resolution without going to trial, and counseling clients on litigation-avoidance strategies in advance to avoid costly disputes in the first place.

Our wealth of experience in trial work provides us an acute sense of when it is best to try a case or to settle a dispute outside of the courtroom. We are extremely familiar with alternative dispute resolution, mediation, and negotiation strategies, and employ these tactics whenever possible. We keep clients advised and involve them in making key strategic and tactical decisions , while evaluating, together, both the costs and benefits of going to trial. Should litigation become necessary, our experience helps us to streamline the process, considerably reducing the costs and time commitments of a trial. While trial is a last option, our willingness and readiness to go the distance is the very quality that drives successful and cost-efficient outcomes for clients.

Our attorneys are frequently honored for excellence as courtroom advocates, including being selected as members of the American College of Trial Lawyers and other prestigious litigation organizations.

Our litigation services include:

  • Administrative proceedings
  • All pretrial and trial services
  • Commercial and personal injury litigation and claims of all types
  • Defense of professionals and executives
  • Arbitration proceedings
  • Mediation and facilitation
  • Settlement negotiations and structured settlements
  • Appearances before federal and state courts and agencies

Michigan courts have long held that a plaintiff cannot title his true cause of action as another simply to benefit from a longer statute of limitations. A medical malpractice plaintiff cannot call her claim for professional negligence (two-year statute of limitations) a breach of contract claim (six-year statute of limitations), or a general negligence claim (three-year statute of limitations). Similarly, a client cannot sue his attorney for breach of contract or fraud (six-year statute of limitations) when his claim is based on professional negligence (two-year statute of limitations).
