Douglas E. Levanway and Margaret H. Williams were recently honored as “Leaders in Law” at Mississippi Business Journal’s third annual “Leadership in Law” reception and awards celebration. The event, which honored 50 members of the state’s legal community and the 2013 Lawyer of the Year, was held at the Hilton in Jackson.
Mr. Levanway is currently President of the firm and serves on the Board of Directors. His practice includes commercial litigation, employment litigation, and regulatory practice.
Much of Mr. Levanway’s employment litigation work involves “whistleblower” cases before the Department of Labor and the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. His regulatory practice is focused on certificates of need and licensure hearings before the Mississippi State Board of Health, and practice before the Nuclear Regulatory Commission on behalf of nuclear energy companies.
Ms. Williams is a shareholder who joined the firm in January of 1979. She has served as Chairman of the Firm’s Board of Directors for the last several years. Her practice focuses on commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and formation or dissolution of joint ventures and limited liability companies for a wide variety of manufacturers, health care providers, public utilities and other businesses.
