The firm’s partners bring in over 30 years of experience in providing guidance to small business owners and professionals, including contract reviews, transaction negotiation, litigation, and guiding businesses through the day-to-day issues that arise in today’s complex legal environment.

The firm’s partners also represent property owners, developers, landlords and tenants for a variety of real estate legal needs. Because of the downturn in Michigan’s economy, property owners often find themselves protecting their hard-earned assets from attacks by creditors, and others. The partners at Nykanen Dorfman have vast experience in negotiating with those creditors to protect the firm’s clients.

In addition, property owners are now laser-focused on managing costs. As a result, property tax appeals are being filed in record numbers in Michigan and throughout the US, both by high-end residential owners and industrial/commercial owners. Mr. Nykanen has extensive experience in the property tax field, and is a frequently cited media source for his expertise in tax appeals.

Mr. Dorfman also has a unique focus that has a personal connection for him–special education law. As an advocate for families struggling with the legal nuances of equality in education for children with special needs, Mr. Dorfman hopes his special education law practice will help these families to secure the services they need and deserve to thrive educationally.
