Community Leadership

Representative Nonprofit and Civic Organizations Served by Honigman Members›

Since the establishment of Honigman in 1948, our attorneys and staff have invested their time, resources, and expertise in the communities where we live, work, and serve. Our founding partners made public service a hallmark of the firm, and we have been proud to advance this tradition for more than 70 years.

Honigman’s impact on the community is far reaching and multifaceted.  Our members contribute to long-established organizations, such as the Detroit Riverfront Conservancy, Detroit Institute of Arts, Detroit Symphony Orchestra, University Musical Society, and the Wharton Center for Performing Arts. They have also initiated exciting new ventures, such as HATCH Detroit, which champions independent retail businesses by providing legal and financial advice, funding, publicity and moral support. All told, members of our firm play prominent roles in more than 100 nonprofit and civic organizations. The City of Detroit has celebrated our leadership in naming its community leadership award after one of our founding partners, Alan E. Schwartz.

In 2018, Honigman debuted three significant community relations initiatives to support the firm’s hallmark commitment to the community:

Honigman Academy: An innovative educational program that provides high school students with a broad overview of life at a corporate law firm. Partnering with the United Way for Southeast Michigan and Detroit public high school Cody Academy of Public Leadership, students attended eight sessions in the Detroit office. Honigman was the first law firm to host such a program in Detroit. The sessions included an overview of the federal legislative process, which was led by Senator Carl Levin, as well as panel discussions focusing on the firm’s litigation, corporate, labor and employment, and administrative departments, and a visit from Judge Aliyah Sabree of the 36th District Court.

Honigman Annual Day of Service: As a way for the firm to observe the Martin Luther King Day of Service initiative, Honigman held its first annual “Day of Service” for attorneys and staff to engage in service projects in their communities. The firm-wide event took place in June 2018. Each office participated by supporting different local nonprofit organizations with incredible enthusiasm.

TutorMate Volunteer Tutoring Program: More than 70 Honigman attorneys and staff volunteered to tutor first and second grade public school children from Chicago, Detroit, and Grand Rapids through TutorMate, the nation’s preeminent online volunteer tutoring program. The program helps improve literacy among at-risk students by spending 30 minutes a week online with them.

To encourage this tradition of serving the public, the firm provides resources, including a Chief Community Officer, to assist in identifying appropriate organizations for participation and continued commitment. Honigman takes great pride in its tradition of public service, and in all the ways our members have been defining that tradition for the 21st century.
