John Pace is Senior Counsel in the Detroit Office of GRSM where he focuses his practice on commercial litigation. John represents insurance companies and corporate defendants in a range of matters including premises lability, governmental liability and professional liability.

For three of those years, John was the exclusive writer for the business court where he worked on complex, high-stakes cases involving entities.
