Kenneth T. Brooks named Managing Partner of Honigman's Lansing Office

January 8, 2007

Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP announced today that Kenneth Brooks has been named managing partner of Honigman's Lansing office, effective Jan. 1, 2007.  Brooks replaces Dan Demlow, who has retired and had served as managing partner of the Lansing office since its inception in 1985.

"We look forward to the continued growth and new business goals that Ken brings," said Alan S. Schwartz, CEO of Honigman.  "His experience and professional and personal networks in Lansing will be invaluable to continuing our commitment to bringing connectivity and results to our clients.  Ken's ability to relate to the Honigman attorneys and staff will also contribute to his effective management of the Lansing office."

Brooks joined Honigman as a partner in 2004. Concentrating in litigation and insurance law, Brooks was recently included in the 2007 edition of Best Lawyers in America for his work with Honigman's Commercial Litigation practice.  Brooks also serves on the Honigman Board of Directors.  Brooks' predecessor, Demlow, was the first and only attorney to serve as managing partner of the Lansing office.  During his tenure, Demlow worked to build Honigman's regulatory practice into one of the best in the state.

"Under Dan's direction our Lansing office has experienced many successes," said Brooks.  "I am excited about the future opportunities Honigman has in Lansing.  We want to provide our clients and prospective clients with the unique resources available in the state's capitol."  Brooks resides in Williamston with his wife Ginny.  He has two grown children Kristin and Drew.
