Business Disputes

Landlord-Tenant Matters

Mr. Doerr is a premier landlord-tenant attorney.  In 2005, he had his first landlord-tenant trial where he successfully abated rent on behalf of a popular restaurant in Detroit due to a defective roof.  Since then, he has handled a variety of complex landlord-tenant matters, for both landlords and tenants, including matters regarding lease obligations, short-term rentals (e.g., AirBnb), failure to repair, quiet enjoyment, wrongful eviction, CAM disputes, health issues caused by mold, security deposit, insurance claims, and many other issues. 

Mr. Doerr has also authored numerous articles and blogs on the topic, including a feature article in the June/July 2016 Real Estate Law Issue of LACHES, a publication of the Oakland County Bar Association, and an article in Spring & Summer (2018) edition of the Michigan Real Property Review.  He has also been interviewed to discuss his landlord-tenant expertise.

In 2004, the Legal Aid and Defender Association awarded Mr. Doerr with a Pro Bono Spirit Award after obtaining treble damages on behalf of a wrongfully-evicted tenant.

Mr. Doerr also represents numerous national retailers and restaurants in disputes relating to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictive government orders.
