John Parker is a trial lawyer. He has been called on by clients to try their most pressing and complex disputes, regardless of the area of law. For example, John has tried multimillion-dollar CERCLA liability and cost recovery cases, major supply contract cases, shareholder actions, fraud cases, and post-closing purchase price disputes arising from the sale of a business, among others. John has handled environmental litigation in numerous states, including Michigan, California, Texas, New Jersey and Delaware. He concentrates his litigation counseling practice primarily on environmental matters and contractual disputes, particularly those between manufacturers and their distributors, representatives or customers.
