Nick Coulson is an experienced, accomplished class action litigator and a partner at Liddle & Dubin, PC.

Courts throughout the country have appointed Mr. Coulson to represent millions of people in dozens of class actions. He views the class action lawsuit as one of the strongest tools ordinary citizens have against powerful interests. He is proud to have utilized that tool to recover many millions of dollars for his clients, and to improve the lives of those impacted by industrial emissions, contamination, and corporate greed. He has also successfully litigated numerous appeals in class actions in both state and federal courts.

Mr. Coulson is currently prosecuting a lawsuit in federal court on behalf of the victims of Parchment, Michigan's PFAS water contamination crisis. That case stems from the 2018 discovery of high levels of the toxic substances in the town's municipal water supply, and names 3M and entities related to Georgia-Pacific as Defendants. He is also hard at work for victims of airborne environmental contamination and consumer fraud.

Mr. Coulson first joined the firm as a law clerk in June, 2012. In that role, he was closely involved with the firm’s successful appeal to the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit in Bell v. Cheswick Generating Station, GenOn Power Midwest, L.P. In that case the Third Circuit ruled, in a precedential opinion, that homeowners’ claims for pollution of their properties by nearby coal plants are not preempted by the Federal Clean Air Act. This important decision is essential for the preservation of individual property rights against industrial polluters.

Mr. Coulson graduated from Oakland University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science, and received his law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School in 2013. He was admitted to the State Bar of Michigan in 2013.
