Gregory L. Curtner
Greg Curtner is at home in a courtroom. A widely-recognized advocate, Curtner has tried complex cases involving antitrust, business transactions, defamation, intellectual property, securities, and sports law. At RSHC, he leads the antitrust, competition, and distribution practice. He is also an active member of the firm’s class actions and commercial litigation groups.
As much as he thrives on trying cases, Greg’s primary mission and passion is understanding and helping to solve his clients’ business challenges. He is committed to providing effective and creative counsel to support the strategic goals of his clients. His understanding of, and experience in, economics, accounting, marketing, distribution, and finance help him to team effectively with clients. Greg will frame, present, and try a case when that’s the best solution or craft creative settlements when that option is the wiser course.
In Greg’s view, solving problems born in the past is only part of his job. He aims to offer advice and strategy that his clients can use and rely upon as they do business in the future.
Through four decades of representing athletic associations, manufacturers, trade associations and academic institutions, Greg has cultivated an unparalleled depth of knowledge about antitrust, sports, entertainment, and education. He has successfully represented many high-profile defendants, including the National Collegiate Athletic Association, in precedent-setting cases.
Greg frequently serves as lead counsel in nationwide antitrust disputes and class actions for clients in a wide range of industries, and has appeared in numerous state and federal courts.
He is a former chairman of the Antitrust Section of the State Bar of Michigan, and was the primary drafter of the Michigan Antitrust Reform Act.
