May 18, 2016

Dykema, a leading national law firm, today announced the addition of Jen Flood to its Government Policy & Practice Group as a government policy advisor in the firm’s Lansing office. Prior to joining Dykema, Flood served as a communications strategist with Byrum & Fisk Advocacy Communications, where she served as the firm’s lead in clean energy and education.

Flood brings nearly a decade of experience and in-depth understanding of the legislative and political landscape to Dykema. She also has experience working in the area of coalition building. In her previous position with Byrum and Fisk, she directed complex projects and issue campaigns that straddled the private sector and government at the state and federal levels.

Flood is a member of the Michigan Political Leadership Program Finance Committee and previously served on the Ingham County Women’s Commission and Potter Park Zoo Board. She also has prior experience working in the Michigan House, Senate and Governor’s Office.

“Jen’s experience working in several levels of government and also with the private sector will be very beneficial for clients,” said Sandra M. Cotter, Director of Dykema's Regulated Industries Department and Leader of its Government Policy & Practice Group. “We are very excited to add someone with her background and knowledge to our Lansing office.”

Flood received her Masters of Public Policy and Bachelor of Arts in economics from Michigan State University.
