About me

Marc L. Newman concentrates his practice on business and commercial
litigation of all types, including complex litigation, contract cases,
automotive supplier issues, real estate and land use matters,
shareholder and partnership disputes, and creditor/debtor litigation. In
2008, he was named as one of the Top 100 Attorneys in Michigan by
SuperLawyers Magazine, a peer review survey that selects the top 5% of
attorneys in Michigan. He is the youngest among the Top 100 attorneys.
He was originally named to the SuperLawers list in 2007. Mr. Newman has
received an AV rating by the Martindale-Hubbell legal directory, its
most distinguished rating.

He has successfully tried several jury trials in both state and federal
courts, and has litigated cases throughout Michigan, New York, Arkansas,
Colorado, Georgia, and Tennessee. In negotiating settlements, Mr. Newman
has obtained exceptional results, including several multi-million dollar
settlements in favor of his clients. One of his cases was featured in
the "Article of the Week" in 2006 in the Michigan Lawyers Weekly for his
defense of a client at trial in which he received involuntary dismissal
of the plaintiff’s lawsuit and sanctions against the plaintiff in the
amount of $750,000, by demonstrating that the plaintiff and a material
witness conspired to commit perjury. His cases are routinely featured in
the Michigan Lawyers Weekly as representing among the top settlements in
Michigan each year.

Mr. Newman graduated from the University of Michigan Law School in 1994.
He began his successful law school career at the University of
Detroit-Mercy School of Law where he finished fourth overall in his
first year class. He received several American Jurisprudence Awards, as
well as the Dean's Scholarship for Academic Excellence, and was invited
to join the Law Review before transferring to the University of Michigan
Law School. He is a 1991 graduate of Michigan State University's James
Madison College.

Mr. Newman has co-authored several articles in the Michigan Bar Journal,
including Still Keeping The Faith: The Duty of Good Faith, 76 Mich B.J.
1190 (Nov. 1997), dealing with various issues in contract law. He
regularly serves as a judge at the University of Michigan Law School
Henry M. Campbell Moot Court Competition.
