Mr. Bone joined Paesano Akkashian Apkarian, P.C., as an associate attorney in August of 2015.  He quickly established himself as skilled trial attorney, litigating matters in state and federal court throughout Michigan and the United States.  Devin accepted a partnership position in April of 2019 and oversees the firm’s securities litigation and compliance practice.   

Devin’s securities practice includes both litigation and transactional matters.  On the litigation side, he represents public and private companies in shareholder disputes and investigations brought by the SEC or other government agencies.  Devin has experience litigating securities matters in courts and private arbitrations around the United States. He also maintains a FINRA arbitration practice, representing both customers and brokers in investment disputes, employment claims, or other industry matters.  On the compliance side, Devin advises companies on reporting requirements under the Securities Act of 1933 and Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  This includes advising clients on mergers, acquisitions, initial public offerings, and private capital raises.     

In addition to his securities practice, Devin maintains a general commercial and employment litigation practice.  He represents companies and individuals in a variety of matters, ranging from contract disputes to discrimination claims.  He regularly represents automotive suppliers in disputes involving down-stream suppliers, original equipment manufacturers, and competitors engaging in unfair trade practices.
