About Artaev at Law

Dan Artaev

Founder and Managing Partner

Dan is an accomplished and experienced business attorney who knows how to do things the right way to further his clients’ goals. Dan is licensed in the state courts of Michigan, Michigan’s federal courts for the Eastern and Western Districts, and the federal court for the Southern District of Indiana. Additionally, Dan has been admitted to practice in the United States Bankruptcy and Tax Courts and the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit.

Dan also is a trained mediator and firmly believes in the value of early dispute resolution. After all, business owners do not make money litigating. A student of the latest, cutting-edge facilitative mediation techniques, Dan applies these principles to help parties craft creative, win-win solutions to complex, multi-faceted problems that may have seemed insurmountable.

After graduating summa cum laude from MSU Law in 2010, Dan worked as an Assistant Attorney General and represented various state agencies in labor-related matters. Dan then moved to the Metro Detroit area and transitioned to private practice, focusing on high-stakes commercial litigation in both state and federal courts. In his most recent work for a Northville-based business firm, Dan assisted owners with real estate, asset and stock sales, NDAs, and employment contracts. Dan also used his experience in both the private and public sectors to help healthcare and other licensees to successfully navigate and resolve administrative actions filed by the State of Michigan.

Dan is a fluent native Russian speaker, and is conversant in German and Spanish. He obtained dual majors in Economics and German from Kalamazoo College, where he was a magna cum laude graduate, completed a 6-month study abroad program at the Fredrich-Alexander University in Erlangen, Germany, and was also a 4-year member of the storied K-College NCAA Division III men’s tennis team.

Outside of his law practice, Dan enjoys spending time with his wife, son, and a special-needs cat named Maxim. Dan retired from tennis due to injury, but is now an avid cyclist, runner, and triathlete, who competes in as many local races as he can. When not on his bike and on Zwift or watching Tour de France reruns, Dan is a technology addict and gamer of everything.
