This Monday, Clark Hill PLC will have a fairly well-known expert in public policy, business law and government relations joining its member roster.
He’s former Senate Majority Leader Mike Bishop, who comes off a 12-year stint in the Legislature.
“I always knew that I was going to go back to the private sector, and I love the practice of law,” Bishop told Crain’s Detroit Business. “I’ve always enjoyed the profession and the challenge of the profession, so this was really my ideal place to return.”
Bishop added that in leaving the Legislature, he takes with him “a really genuine understanding of public policy — what goes into it, what the considerations are, how to get things done,” and that will bring a “unique perspective” to Clark Hill and clients.
He will be working out of the Birmingham office of Clark Hill, the firm that ranked No. 7 in Michigan Lawyers Weekly’s 2010 “Michigan’s Largest Law Firms” list.
