Nemeth Law founder Patricia Nemeth receives Michigan Defense Trial Counsel Award for Excellence in Defense

Detroit—February 3, 2020—Patricia Nemeth, founder of Detroit-based management side labor and employment law firm Nemeth Law, P.C., has been named a recipient of the Michigan Defense Trial Counsel (MDTC) Excellence in Defense Award for 2020. MDTC is an association of the leading lawyers in the State of Michigan dedicated to representing individuals and corporations in civil litigation. The strolling dinner event will take place on Wednesday, March 19, 2020 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at the Gem Theatre in Detroit. Fox 2 Detroit news anchor Roop Raj will serve as emcee for the evening.

Nemeth was recognized in the category of Excellence in Defense, honoring civil defense counsel who through their professionalism, intelligence, creativity, judgement, civility, advocacy skills, community involvement and efforts to educate younger attorneys, promote the practice of the defense bar and the representation of their clients in and outside of the courtroom. The award also recognizes contributions beyond the recipient’s normal role as an advocate.

Nemeth founded Nemeth Law as a solo practitioner in 1992. Nationally recognized, the firm exclusively represents management in the prevention, resolution and litigation of labor and employment disputes. Nemeth is a versatile attorney known to advocate aggressively but civilly for her clients, and has found success as a litigator, investigator, consultant, and certified mediator. In recent years, she has increased her practice commitment to arbitration and mediation, seeking a peaceful resolution to a variety of civil and employment conflicts. While leading Nemeth Law as the largest woman-owned law firm in Michigan to exclusively represent management in the prevention, resolution and litigation of labor and employment disputes, she has gained expertise in a variety of industries including healthcare, gaming, insurance, retail, manufacturing and government entities. At the same time, she has acted as a mentor to up and coming defense attorneys and continues working for change that benefits not only her clients, but the greater legal community.

The Excellence in Defense award is one of many honors bestowed on Nemeth in recent years. In November 2019, she was named a Fellow by the College of Labor and Employment Lawyers. Being selected as a Fellow is the highest recognition by one’s colleagues of sustained outstanding performance in the profession—exemplifying integrity, dedication, civility and excellence. Fellows include distinguished lawyers, law professors, mediators, arbitrators and government officials. In April 2016, Nemeth received a Distinguished Alumni award from the Wayne State University School of Law at its annual Treasure of Detroit celebration, honoring those who have made significant contributions to the practice of law, as well as the growth and success of the Law School. She has been on the U.S. News – Best Lawyers® list since 2010 and is a multiple Michigan Super Lawyer and Leading Lawyer honoree. In 2009 Nemeth was named a “Leader in the Law” by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. She is also an ABA Foundation Fellow and a member of the Michigan, Illinois, Federal, and the United States Supreme Court Bars.

Nemeth holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan and a Juris Doctorate and LLM in Labor Law from Wayne State University School of Law.
