Biography

Commercial litigation, employment law and litigation lawyer serves clients throughout Southern Michigan and the United States

With more than 25 years of legal experience, attorney Mark T. Butler is known for his efficient and skilled legal representation and for his strategic and effective legal tactics. With a background in business and a reputation in the industry for successfully resolving complex cases, attorney Butler represents clients in federal and state court litigation throughout Michigan in:

  • Business litigation
  • Civil litigation
  • Contract law
  • Confidentiality and non-compete agreements
  • FINRA arbitrations
  • Employment law
  • Estate planning
  • Insurance coverage litigation
  • Media law
  • Criminal law
  • Sales representation agreements

A litigation management firm based in Mount Clemens, the seat of Macomb County, Michigan, we represent clients ranging from individuals and small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.

Over the course of his career, attorney Butler has worked in law firms of nearly every size and has used his experience to develop a system of litigation management, providing his clients with the service and efficiency of a small firm and the expertise and resources of a mid-size or large firm.

A central precept of our practice is that litigation should never be undertaken - either as plaintiff or defendant - without the attorney and client first agreeing upon a clearly defined business purpose and realistic exit strategy. Without such a plan, litigation can take on a life of its own, causing the client to incur exorbitant costs while achieving none of the objectives. The development of a sound litigation plan is the first step in each and every case we accept.
