Weitz & Luxenberg has opened a new office in Detroit, Michigan in an expansion of our Environmental, Toxic Tort and Consumer Protection Unit. Detroit adds to Weitz & Luxenberg’s existing offices in New York City, Los Angeles and Cherry Hill, New Jersey. The new branch will be led by managing attorney Paul Novak.
“The legal teams at our firm’s three existing branches have a long history of achieving major victories for our clients, and we now look forward to bringing this experience and dedication to Detroit,” said firm co-founder Arthur Luxenberg. “Paul brings unique and invaluable experience to our firm, particularly in antitrust and securities litigation. Under his leadership, we believe our Detroit office will immediately make an impact in the area.”
Paul Novak’s Experience and Expertise to Lead the New Detroit Team
Novak joins Weitz & Luxenberg from Milberg LLP, where he was a partner focusing on antitrust, securities and consumer protection class actions. Prior to this role, Novak served as an assistant attorney general for the State of Michigan and as the city attorney of Lansing, working on antitrust, environmental, and regulatory matters.
“We are excited to open this new office and will immediately begin fighting for our clients,” said Novak. “This firm has demonstrated time and again its ability to stand up for consumers who have been hurt by corporate greed and negligence, and my team and I are dedicated to building on this reputation in Detroit and the Midwest as a whole.”
