Sheehan, Robert D.

Profile & Practice Areas

Robert D. Sheehan has established a sterling reputation as one of the most tenacious litigators in Michigan. With strong ties to the community, he maintains a strong conviction to provide the community with the finest legal representation. In addition to his strong presence in Michigan, Bob has built an interstate and international practice as well. He is admitted to multiple jurisdictions and handles complex litigation and transactional matters across the globe.

A Michigan native, Bob began his practice in Southern California as a commercial litigator. After several years there, he returned to his home state of Michigan. Bob focuses his practice on commercial litigation, corporate, transactional and real estate matters. His experience in litigation and corporate management also led him to develop a strong white collar criminal defense practice, with a perspective unique among such defense attorneys. Bob ultimately merged his firm with Kotz Sangster and, as a small business owner himself, he brings that perspective to his practice.
