Honigman’s Carl M. Levin receives the Dave Bing “Leadership” Award
Carl M. Levin, former U.S. Senator, recently received the Dave Bing “Leadership” Award from the Detroit Police Athletic League. PAL is a non-profit organization that positively influences the lives of nearly 12,000 children each a year through athletic, academic and leadership development programs.
Levin was recognized for leading and securing a $3 million federal grant. The grant is being used as part of Detroit PAL’s “Kids at the Corner” fundraising effort to redevelop the historic site of old Tiger Stadium into a safe and healthy playing field. The permanent headquarters for Detroit PAL is going to be built alongside the field. During conversations with the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy providing the land to Detroit PAL, Levin was an integral part of that decision making process. Levin is an honorary co-chair for the fundraising campaign.
Levin, who served 36 years in the U.S. Senate, focuses his legal practice on assisting publicly and privately held companies in identifying and addressing legal, business and reputational risks that may bring them under public or government scrutiny and result in legal action or loss of business; providing strategic advice to companies regarding public policy and regulatory issues, and issues being considered by federal, state and local legislative bodies. He also provides mediation and alternative dispute resolution services regarding complex disputes, particularly in relation to governmental units.
Levin earned a J.D. from Harvard Law School and a B.A. from Swarthmore College.
