Marc A. Deldin

Marc A. Deldin is a business and real estate attorney. His practice includes both litigation and business transaction matters.

Deldin’s transactional practice includes representing businesses and individuals from initial formation through dissolution. He advises clients on real estate and asset purchases and sales, partnership disputes, commercial lease negotiations, employment disputes, and general business issues.

An experienced litigator, Deldin has tried civil cases before judges and juries in both state and federal courts. His litigation experience includes:

  • issuance of a writ of mandamus directing a local municipality to comply with its own ordinance regarding the ranking and evaluation of applicants for marijuana licensing;
  • a finding that a local township violated Michigan’s Open Meetings Act when it granted lifetime employment to its attorney in an illegal closed meeting;
  • obtaining an opinion in a federal civil rights lawsuit that a business client was denied due process in the taking of its property;
  • pre-discovery dismissal of a state court lawsuit alleging “pay-to-play” scheme between clients and public officials;
  • dismissal of a federal antitrust lawsuit against a client over allegations of bid rigging and predatory pricing on a public procurement project; and
  • dozens of favorable settlements at early stages of litigation through aggressive representation and at a substantial cost-saving to his clients.

In 2020, Deldin’s peers elected him as a Super Lawyers - Rising Star in the field of real estate law. This distinction is bestowed on just 2.5% of practicing lawyers.

Prior to entering private practice in 2013, he served as general counsel for several affiliated transportation and real estate companies for four years.

Deldin graduated magna cum laude from Western Michigan University and received his Juris Doctor, cum laude, from Wayne State University Law School in 2007.
