The entire firm mourns the passing of equity partner Lin Hanson. More than just a co-worker, Lin was considered to be a mentor and friend to everyone he worked with. His experience, expertise and good nature will be missed professionally and personally.

Lin was born October 4, 1937 in Evanston, Illinois. Lin was a graduate of the University of Michigan, both undergraduate and law school. He practiced in the areas of corporate law and estate planning for over 50 years, and was one of the drafters of both the Business Corporation Act and the Limited Liability Act. Lin was a 20 year member and past chairman of the Secretary of State’s Business Laws Advisory Committee.

Lin was a life-long supporter of the University of Michigan Athletics, and was a proud member of Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity. Lin is survived by his wife Mary Cate Hanson and their son. Linscott Hanson II.
