Kelly Kane supports construction clients including property owners, contractors, and suppliers in litigation of construction matters.

Kelly helps clients with contract disputes, lien and bond claims, collections, and violations of the Michigan Building Contract Fund Act. In addition to her construction practice, Kelly also litigates commercial contract disputes and business torts.

Recently, Kelly obtained a six-figure money judgment on behalf of a construction materials supplier pursuant to a bond claim. Kelly also defended a seven-figure breach of contract action on behalf of a client, where the trial court dismissed all claims against the client following a five-day bench trial. The trial court then awarded the client its reasonable attorney fees incurred at trial pursuant to Kelly’s motion.

Prior to joining Clark Hill, Kelly worked as a human resources assistant at the largest greenhouse produce grower in North America. There, Kelly was responsible for recruitment, training, workers compensation, and employee relations at the Canadian headquarters.
