Attorney named to Detroit Jewish News and the Well’s ‘36 Under 36’ List

Attorney Jonathan H. Schwartz has been named to the Detroit Jewish News and The Well’s inaugural “36 Under 36” class. The “36 Under 36” designation honors professionals, entrepreneurs, business owners, and philanthropists who are making an impact on those around them, and the community at large. Nominations were reviewed by a panel of independent judges prominent in the Jewish community.

Schwartz was selected for his leadership roles on the boards of numerous Jewish community organizations, including: The Jewish Bar Association of Michigan, NEXTGen Detroit, the Anti-Defamation League, and the Jewish Community Relations Council/American Jewish Committee (JCRC/AJC). In addition, Jonathan was recognized for founding NEXTGen Detroit’s interfaith couples affinity group, co-chairing the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit’s first-ever interfaith couples’ mission to Israel with his wife Stacy, and co-founding NEXTGen Pride, an affinity group for LGBTQ young professionals and their allies.

Schwartz is a member of Foster Swift’s litigation practice group, and specializes in representing companies and individuals in business, complex commercial, employment, real estate and entertainment matters. He also assists clients with contract drafting, negotiations and deal making and all aspects of risk management, governance and operation.
