Mark E. Nettleton

Attorney Grand Rapids, MI

I thrive on helping businesses deftly navigate the complex worlds of public finance, municipal law, land use and zoning law, and real estate. Every challenge is unique, and I welcome each one, knowing that listening, diligent planning, and solid communication can overcome it.

Outside of the Firm, I serve on the Board of Directors of the Government Law Section of the State Bar of Michigan and am a past chair of that section. I also serve on the Board of Directors for Arbor Circle, an organization with a mission that I’m passionate about.
