|Description||If you met Janet in line at a local bookstore, she wouldn’t introduce herself as an attorney. She doesn’t let the practice of law define her as a person. Instead, she might tell you about her latest trip, Cross Fit, a great recipe she recently tried or one of the dozens of books on her nightstand. But, when you did get around to discussing work, Janet will make it clear that she is not an attorney – she is a litigator.|
With a deep foundation in commercial litigation, Janet has developed an expertise in intellectual property litigation, particularly advertising and marketing disputes. Janet has worked on cases involving false advertising, intellectual property infringement, business defamation, trade secret theft, unfair competition and breach of contract. She has successfully obtained temporary restraining orders and preliminary injunctions for clients in both state and federal court.
As a result of her litigation experience, Janet began counseling clients on how to avoid false advertising claims through appropriate claims substantiation and related procedures. Janet also counsels clients looking to challenge advertising by competitors, working to achieve the best solution possible based on the client’s specific goals and budget.
Janet’s experience and expertise has not gone unnoticed. Janet was named a "Michigan Rising Star" by Super Lawyers in 2009 and 2010. And, the year before, Janet was honored by Michigan Lawyers Weekly as one of the "Up & Coming Lawyers" in the state. According to the selection criteria, "Up & Coming Lawyers" have established a name for themselves early in their careers and are "posed for even greater accomplishments in the future."
She is a frequent lecturer on various topics, including advertising and marketing law, e-discovery and intellectual property litigation.
