Martin C. Weisman

One of PREMi’s original founders, Martin Weisman offers a wealth of experience in alternative dispute resolution approaches, formats, and successes.

Marty is an accomplished advocate in his own right, having focused his practice on commercial litigation for more than 40 years, representing plaintiffs and defendants alike.  Because of his reputation for fairness, he has served multiple times as an expert witness in contract, banking, lending, corporate/partnership, real estate, and professional negligence matters, and has been appointed by various courts as to help resolve business and commercial disputes as a special master.  He has earned the admiration of his peers in the business and legal communities, as evidenced by repeated accolades such as DBusiness Magazine’s Top Lawyer honors, an AV Preeminent Lawyer rating from Martindale-Hubbell, and designation as a Michigan Super Lawyer each year since 2007.

In addition to his busy mediation and arbitration practice, Marty also serves as PREMi’s lead trainer, and a driving force behind the organization’s annual Med-Arb program.  He is also an active proponent of the expanded use of ADR in Michigan, and has testified before the state legislature in support of new and revised dispute resolution statutes and rules.  Marty’s commitment to ADR as a means to resolve business and legal disputes also extends to educating other lawyers and the public regarding its benefits and advantages, and he is a frequent speaker, author, and faculty member for organizations such as Michigan Lawyers Weekly, the Michigan Bar Journal, the Institute of Continuing Legal Education, the Oakland County Bar Association, and the American Arbitration Association.
