Frank T. Mamat is a well-respected labor law attorney known for his accessibility and responsiveness to clients. Because Frank, knows that labor and employment matters can arise any at time, he strives to make himself readily available to his clients around the clock for their most pressing labor issues.

A range of entities, from the United Nations to small, two-person businesses, along with construction companies, and trade and business associations – come to Frank because of his nearly 45 years of deep experience helping companies, contractors and employers with their complex labor and union matters.

Through the years, Frank has successfully counseled clients on virtually every type of labor matter. He also helped the Michigan Senate in 2012 prepare Michigan's "Right to Work" law.

In particular, he provides counsel and assistance regarding union matters such as contract negotiations, elections, union avoidance, and labor arbitrations; noncompetes; unfair labor practice litigation; harassment suits; wage and hour issues; National Labor Relations Board cases; organizing attempts by unions, mass picketing and violence, secondary boycotts and pressure; and OSHA-MIOSHA and safety matters. He also advises clients on ERISA trust funds and related fiduciary liabilities.

Frank is sought after in greater Detroit and around the country and serves as labor counsel for several major employer associations and nonprofit trade associations, as well as on local and national boards of directors. He also is frequently asked to speak to major trade groups about various labor and employment law issues.

He also has represented and advised businesses, political groups and governments in legislative and political issues. In the course of his career, Frank has advised a former U.S. president, as well as multiple governors, U.S. and state senators, congressmen, mayors, and county executives, along with dozens of candidate campaigns and political parties. He was special counsel to the Attorney General and Michigan Gov. Rick Snyder regarding enforcement of anti-mandatory PLA statutes and special campaign counsel for Michigan to President Donald Trump. He was also considered by four U.S. presidents to serve as a federal judge in Michigan (1986-1988), as assistant secretary of labor (1992), as chair of the National Labor Relations Board (2001), and as chair of the Federal Labor Relations Authority (2017).
