About the Firm

Rossman Saxe, P.C. specializes in business litigation and commercial transactions.   The firm represents business owners and companies of all sizes, ranging from start-ups, small businesses, and sole proprietorships to large companies.  Unlike other firms, the firm believes in tailoring its fee arrangements to the special circumstances of each client, offering flat-fees for its transactional and litigation projects, fixed monthly outside-general counsel fees, and blended hourly-contingency rates.  The firm's goal is to achieve optimal results with predictable fees, so that its clients can focus on growing and managing their business pursuits.

The firm's attorneys have a reputation for tough yet cost-effective and sensible representation in litigation involving any variety of business torts, shareholders and partnerships, employment relationships, breaches of contract, and bankruptcies. And when litigation becomes bloodsport, the attorneys at Rossman Saxe are ready for the fight.  The firm's attorneys have netted their clients tens of millions of dollars, and their business litigation recoveries have repeatedly ranked among the highest in the state. In 2013 and 2015, Mark Rossman and Brian Saxe, respectively, obtained the #1 largest settlements reported in Michigan Lawyers Weekly, both in complex business cases. They also have helped shape the law on business litigation through briefing to the Michigan Supreme Court.  In 2015, DBusiness Magazine named Mark and Brian Top Lawyers in Commercial and Corporate Law.  In 2017, the firm was profiled by Michigan Lawyer's Weekly for an $840,000 settlement it obtained on behalf of a minority member of a hotel business.

Outside the courtroom, the firm is excited to be representing new and growing enterprises in the burgeoning metro-Detroit business community.  Rossman Saxe guides its clients in navigating the transactional complexities of forming, growing, and protecting their businesses.  One of the pillars of a successful business is a solid legal structure to protect against liability and future disputes.  Whether for a start-up or an existing business, the firm will build this foundation.  

In addition to its business practice, Rossman Saxe also provides family law and estate planning services.   In the divorce context, the firm applies unique strategies to resolve matters as quickly and efficiently as possible, to minimize the damage that the divorce process causes to families, both emotionally and financially.
