Royal Oak, Michigan (PRWEB) December 12, 2011
Mark Demorest was recently selected a Top Lawyer by Dbusiness magazine in the specialized area of eminent domain and condemnation law. Dbusiness magazine is one of Detroit’s premier business journals. Mr. Demorest is one of only nine lawyers from this practice area to receive this distinction.
The Top Lawyer designation is a peer-reviewed award, meaning that Mr. Demorest was selected by other metropolitan Detroit lawyers. The selection process is demanding. Over 21,000 lawyers were polled and asked to name three lawyers for each practice area.
DBusiness magazine also previously honored Mr. Demorest as one of the Top Lawyers in Detroit for the area of general Business Law in 2010. He has also been named a Michigan Super Lawyer every year from 2007 through 2011 for Business Law.
Among other cases, Mr. Demorest represented the prevailing parties in two precedent-setting inverse condemnation cases in Michigan, both of which resulted in large jury verdicts for our clients. In Merkur Steel Supply, Inc. v City of Detroit and Steel Associates, Inc. v City of Detroit, he obtained jury verdicts of $6.8 Million and $4 Million, which were subsequently affirmed by the Michigan Court of Appeals and Michigan Supreme Court. In these cases, his clients were tenants of commercial property in the City of Detroit. The City of Detroit interfered with the operation of their businesses because the City of Detroit planned to acquire the property where the tenants were located. He proved that the City of Detroit had improperly interfered with the property rights of the tenants.
Mark Demorest and Demorest Law firm take great pride in their eminent domain and condemnation law practice area. Demorest Law firm has represented numerous clients in this area, both businesses and individuals.
