Honigman’s Lynn Gandhi selected for “Women in the Law” designation

Honigman Miller Schwartz and Cohn LLP is pleased to announce that Lynn A. Gandhi, a co-leader of the firm’s State and Local Tax Practice Group, has been named one of 30 “Women in the Law” for 2016 by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. An editorial panel selected the honorees based on their commitment to excellence in the practice of law, accomplishments as a leader in the profession, service as a mentor to other women, and involvement in the community. Gandhi will be honored at a luncheon on Sept. 15 and featured in a special section of the publication on Sept. 19. 

Gandhi, who works primarily out of the Kalamazoo office, is a tax attorney with significant experience advising clients nationwide on multistate tax issues, assisting with audits and litigating state tax cases. Her practice includes unclaimed property and escheat audits and voluntary disclosures, due diligence support, risk review, and incentive assistance. She is a registered lobbyist and a C.P.A.

Gandhi served as an officer of the State Bar of Michigan’s Taxation Section for five years. She has chaired the Michigan Chamber of Commerce’s Tax Policy Committee since 2013 and  currently serves on tax advisory committees for the Paul J. Hartman State Tax Forum at Vanderbilt School of Law, CH State Tax and Bloomberg BNA. She most recently worked pro bono to file an amicus brief on behalf of the Council of State Chambers to the U.S. Supreme Court. In addition, as a member of the state’s Business Tax Advisory Group, she advises the Department of Treasury in finding ways to improve processes and customer service.

In the Dec. 2014 State Tax Notes, Gandhi was named as one of the “best in the profession.” She authors a State Tax Notes monthly column, "Smitten with the Mitten," which dis-
cusses Michigan tax issues.

Gandhi earned an LL.M. from New York University Law School, a J.D. from Wayne State University Law School and a B.A. from Kalamazoo College.
