Gregory M. Meihn is a Partner in the Detroit office of GRSM and is a member of the Employment Law practice group. He focuses his transactional and litigation practice in the core areas of employment and education law. He also has an active construction law practice.

Gregory represents and consults with insurance companies, cities, townships, municipalities, schools, and employers on employment and labor issues including but not limited to discipline, harassment, terminations, unions, discrimination, retaliation, unemployment, employment hiring practices, non-competition agreements, and issues involving Michigan Elliott Larsen Civil Rights Act, Title VII, ADEA, ADA, and related statutes. He represents his clients before all Michigan Federal and State Courts, the American Arbitration Association, FINRA, the Michigan Employment Security Commission, the National Labor Relations Board, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the Michigan Department of Civil Rights, and the Michigan Employment Relations Commission. He represents his clients on appeals to the Michigan Court of Appeals, Michigan Supreme Court, the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, and the U.S. Supreme Court. Indeed, recently Gregory successfully defeated a writ of certiorari before the U.S. Supreme Court on a religious discrimination claim.

In addition to his successful employment and labor practice, he represents insurance companies, residential and commercial construction companies, rock crushing operators, and construction supply companies with regard to public jobs, bonded jobs, federal and state compliance issues, mold defense, construction defect, defective products, third party claims, Michigan Builders Trust Fund Act claims, and related matters.

Gregory’s trial experience is significant as he has litigated through trial and/or arbitration more than 66 matters (bench and jury) relating to employment and labor and construction defect claims.

He is well respected in Michigan by judges and fellow lawyers and was recently accorded the status of “Master Litigator” by the American Inns of Court. Gregory has frequently been asked to author articles for Michigan Lawyers Weekly, Corp Magazine, and other publications and has appeared on ABC World News, ABC 12 News, and WWJ regarding recent topical issues involving employment and labor issues.

Additionally, Gregory was recognized by Lawyers Weekly as its 2009 21st Century Innovator of the Year for the Employment Connection Program he co-created. This program allows employers and businesses direct and immediate access to lawyers who promptly answer employment and business questions, enabling employers to make good decisions quickly and, thereby, reduce the potential for litigation. The Employment Connection Program is now operative in 38 states.

Additionally, because of his reputation in the legal community, he was appointed to the State Bar of Michigan Professional Ethics Committee.
