The Miller Johnson law firm in Detroit named Fadwa Hammoud as the firm’s managing member of its Detroit office.

Hammoud was chief deputy attorney general of Michigan as well as the state’s former solicitor general. She will help lead the firm in crisis management, dispute resolution, intellectual property, health care, corporate, mergers and acquisitions, real estate, and education law.

Hammoud will report directly to David Buday, managing member of Miller Johnson.

“This is an incredible opportunity for me personally and professionally, as I aim to increase the impact, I am able to have in the communities I have served throughout my career through the kind of direct access the world of private practice provides,” says Hammoud. “Miller Johnson is the firm of choice for me based on its reputation of excellence and of giving back to the communities it serves. It is a team that cares deeply about the people and organizations that they serve, and I look forward to helping lead our efforts in Detroit as Miller Johnson strengthens its position as Michigan’s law firm.”

Hammoud is expected to play a role in setting the firm’s direction in addition to serving as a primary conduit to legislative and judicial personnel at the state and federal levels.

“We are thrilled to welcome Fadwa as the leader in our Detroit office,” says Buday. “We are even more excited that Fadwa shares the same vision for client service and making a positive impact in our communities that we do. She has been the architect of many historic firsts in the legal profession, and we believe her advocacy skills will only generate more positive outcomes across the State.”

Hammoud also served as lead attorney for the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, establishing the business protection unit and advocating on behalf of the county’s various ethnic and immigrant communities. In 2021, Hammoud was appointed to the Commission on Middle Eastern American Affairs, where she served on the legislative committee for the Hispanic/Latino, Asian Pacific American and Middle Eastern American Affairs Commissions.

Hammoud is a member of several organizations, including the League of Women Voters, American Association of University Women, and the Women Lawyers Association. She has previously served on the board of trustees at Henry Ford College, as a trustee and treasurer of the Dearborn Public Schools Board of Education.

In 2023, she was selected as a “Influential Women of Law” by Michigan Lawyers Weekly, and in 2017, she received the Rising Star Award from the Arab American Chamber of Commerce.
