Kreis Enderle is pleased to announce that four of our attorneys were named to the 2019 list of Michigan Super Lawyers and Rising Stars.
- Managing partner Stephen Hessen has more than 30 years of experience in commercial litigation, estate planning, and business planning. His broad litigation and transactional experience combined with a reputation for fairness and professionalism among his peers have made him a sought-after mediator for parties seeking dispute resolution outside the courtroom. This is the seventh consecutive year Steve has appeared on the list of Michigan Super Lawyers.
- Shareholder Jesse Young represents individuals and businesses involved in serious employment disputes including severance negotiations, discrimination, retaliation, whistleblowing activity, employment contracts, terminations, compliance, and Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) violations. This is the eighth consecutive year Jesse has been named a Michigan Super Lawyers Rising Star.
- Associate Elliot Church concentrates his practice on legal issues surrounding software development, database administration, and IT procurement. His combined legal, technical, and transactional experience allows him a comprehensive understanding of the risks and opportunities in IT and an ability to anticipate issues arising in the negotiation and performance of IT agreements. This is Elliot’s third consecutive appearance on the list of Michigan Super Lawyers Rising Stars.
- Associate Nicholas Spigiel represents clients at all stages of litigation, from pleadings to trial. He has secured several summary disposition and summary judgment victories in matters ranging from breach of contract claims to adverse possession actions to Fair Debt Collections Practices Act violations.
