“I enjoy helping business owners in Holland and around Michigan from the start-up stage to taking on new partners, to sale and disposition, to complex transactions such as mergers and minority shareholder force-outs.”

Joel’s work at Cunningham Dalman is primarily in the areas of real estate, corporate law, and assisting owners of small businesses.

His ability to understand and assist entrepreneurs is enhanced by his own experience acquiring and turning around a small manufacturing company and selling it to a multinational firm. His work in real estate involves transaction work such as sales, leases and exchanges, along with resolving all types of real estate disputes, including disagreements among condominium associations and defending lakefront property rights. Joel is an expert in corporate law and is a skilled environmental attorney.
