Miller, Canfield, Paddock and Stone, P.L.C. announces its Public Law Group will receive the Michigan Municipal League’s (MML) Distinguished Achievement Award at the League’s annual banquet on September 12, 2002. The award recognizes the outstanding contributions and service Miller Canfield gives to local government and the important role its Public Law Group plays in municipalities throughout Michigan.

The Miller Canfield Public Law Group offers counsel and specialized services to cities and villages, as well as public agencies, and is a vital part of municipal representation in bonds and finance, economic development, environmental law, labor relations, litigation, taxation and assessment appeals.

The Public Law Group is chaired by William Danhof and Amanda Van Dusen serves as vice chair.

"The Michigan Municipal League celebrated its own Centennial four years ago and almost since the beginning of our history, notes can be found that reflect Miller Canfield’s earlier history and its long service to local government," said George Goodman, Executive Director of the MML.

"We are proud that the Michigan Municipal League has recognized us as leaders in our state," said Thomas W. Linn, CEO of Miller Canfield. "From the Straits of Mackinac to Interstates 94, 96 and 75, our Public Law Group has demonstrated its dedication to local government and continues to play an integral part in shaping public policy and making a difference in communities throughout Michigan."
