Minority Owned Business Litigation

Whether you need assistance negotiating terms and conditions of an employment contract at the beginning of an employment relationship, or the relationship has or is ending and a dispute exists regarding the circumstances causing the termination, GMGMK is nationally recognized for assisting both individual employees and employers.


Led by Donald Gasiorek and Sam Morgan, the firm is AV rated ("Preeminent") by Martindale-Hubbell, a peer-review rating showing that the lawyer has reached the height of professional excellence. The firm has been recognized by U.S. News & World Report's "Best Law Firms in America" for Employment Law from 2010 to 2013.

Because we represent both employees and employers, we have unique insight and inside knowledge of how and why employment disputes get resolved. Both Donald Gasiorek and Sam Morgan often provide alternative dispute resolution services as neutral mediators or arbitrators to other Detroit-area employment litigators. The firm also counsels other law firms on their workforce issues. The depth of our experience uniquely qualifies us to evaluate employment matters, provide clients with knowledgeable and practical advice, and, when necessary, successfully represent clients in litigation.

GMGMK represents employees and employers in cases involving any of the following:

  • Wrongful discharge

  • Employment discrimination

  • Sexual harassment

  • Whistleblower retaliation

  • Breach of noncompete agreements

  • Breach of confidential information agreements

  • Sales commission disputes

  • Misappropriation of trade secrets

  • Minority shareholder oppression and freeze-out disputes

  • Complex class action claims in addition to individual employment-related lawsuits

Our clients and lawyer peers have recognized our effectiveness in employment law matters. Donald Gasiorek and Sam Morgan have been recognized for their employment litigation practices by Best Lawyers in America and Michigan Super Lawyers; they are both AV-rated by Martindale-Hubbell.

Gasiorek, Morgan, Greco, McCauley & Kotzian P.C., understands that while litigation is sometimes required to deal with employment disputes, it is not the only way—nor is it always the best way—to obtain good results for clients. We believe in the importance of knowing when and how to litigate and when to find a solution through negotiation and creative thinking. That sort of knowledge comes from years on the front lines handling cases for clients of all types against employer or employee opponents of all varieties.

Our employment law clients are often executives, senior managers, and family businesses. We advise and represent them in complex issues such as the following:

  • Executive employment contracts

  • Compensation plans

  • Stock options

  • Equity acquisitions, separation agreements

  • Taxes

  • Creative or technical intellectual property protection or enforcement
