Bodman PLC is pleased to announce that three new attorneys have joined the firm: Rhonda H. Armstrong, Donovan C. Asmar, and Apollo K Upshaw.

Armstrong is a staff attorney in the Workplace Law Practice Group.  She concentrates her practice in counseling and representing employers on complex compliance issues related to labor and employment laws. For over 14 years, Armstrong has represented management in matters involving labor and union laws, and has counseled employers on developing strategies for legal compliance. Before joining Bodman, Armstrong practiced with two highly regarded labor and employment boutique law firms.

Asmar is an associate in the Litigation and Alternative Dispute Practice Group. He represents clients involved in complex commercial litigation matters. Before joining Bodman, Asmar clerked for Justice Mary Beth Kelly of the Michigan Supreme Court. He has also worked for a Detroit-area litigation defense firm where he participated in a variety of cases involving civil rights, employment issues, commercial disputes, municipal liability, contractual claims, and constitutional claims. 

Upshaw is a staff attorney in the Enterprise Procurement and Intellectual Property practice groups. He represents clients in drafting and negotiating a broad range of commercial contracts, including vendor service agreements and supply arrangements, with an emphasis on contracts involving IT-based products and services.  Before joining Bodman, Upshaw spent fifteen years as a professional software developer, most recently as a project architect and lead developer for a software engineering firm serving a Tier-1 automotive supplier account.
