Frank T. Mamat


Frank focuses his practice on labor and employment law only for Companies and Employers, and is prepared to respond whenever clients face employment-related issues. He understands the importance of addressing these matters quickly as they affect business clients’ short- and long-term goals. Through more than four decades, Frank has counseled businesses, political groups, and governments on a variety of labor and employment matters, political issues, and legislative topics including contract negotiations, elections, labor arbitrations, unfair practice litigation, union avoidance, wage and hour matters, harassment suits, boycotts, OSHA-MIOSHA matters, mass picketing, and National Relations Board cases. In every situation, Frank prioritizes learning about a client’s concerns and goals in order to craft a strategy that best suits their needs.

Employer associations, nonprofit trade associations, and boards of directors regularly seek Frank’s counsel, and he is a regular speaker to trade groups about employment issues. Throughout his career Frank has also advised lawmakers including governors, congressmen, senators, and local executives, as well as political parties and campaigns. He served as special counsel to former Michigan Governor Rick Snyder concerning anti-mandatory PLA statue enforcement, and was special campaign counsel for Michigan to President Donald Trump.
