Jason Hanselman Named A “Leader in the Law” by Michigan Lawyers Weekly

February 14, 2019

Jason Hanselman, Lansing-based member in Dykema’s Government Policy and Practice group, was named one of Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s 2019 “Leaders in the Law.” A luncheon celebrating the honorees will be held on April 18, 2019, at the Detroit Marriott in Troy, where the 2019 “Lawyer of the Year” will be announced.

In his practice, Hanselman advises clients in highly-regulated fields, such as energy, elections, education, and health care. He regularly represents those clients in complex business matters, legislative drafting on multiple jurisdictions, litigation before state and federal courts, and regulatory proceedings before administrative boards and commissions. He serves as outside general counsel to several trade associations, electric cooperatives, non-profit corporations, and other businesses.

Outside of his legal practice, he has been extremely active in legal professional organizations. He currently serves as President of the Ingham County Bar Foundation, is a former President of the Ingham County Bar Association (2015-2016), and is the Michigan Chapter Leader of the Republican National Lawyers Association.  As Bar Foundation President, Hanselman has been instrumental in increasing charitable giving by lawyers, with the Foundation in 2018 surpassing $100,000 in donations to local charitable organizations.

He’s also active in community and civic organizations. Hanselman currently serves as the publicly elected Treasurer of the DeWitt Board of Education and was appointed by the Governor to serve as Unarmed Combat Commissioner (formerly known as the Boxing Commission) to regulate boxing and mixed martial arts in Michigan.
