The Election Law Practice Department at Butzel is committed to upholding the fundamental principles of democracy through our multifaceted approach to Election Law. Our attorneys collaboratively possess decades of experience counseling and representing clients such as candidates, elected officials, and a variety of office holders at all levels, including individuals serving on the boards of organizations and in positions within municipalities and in state and federal government. We also counsel and represent business entities, corporations, political action committees (PACs), special interest groups, and various nonprofits and trade associations on a variety of issues inherent to election laws and regulations. As a large firm with offices throughout Michigan and the US, we have experience providing clients with guidance at national and local levels throughout the country, including the Michigan Supreme Court.

We’re proud that our capable team has attained successful outcomes in diverse cases across the spectrum. While our achievements may go unsung due to the nature of our work, Butzel clients can rest assured that our unwavering dedication to a bipartisan philosophy, commitment to fostering a collaborative environment that transcends political divides, and our steadfast commitment to upholding fair elections, will ensure that every client will benefit from our unbiased and equitable representation.

Butzel’s attorneys are well-versed in counseling clients on issues such as timely reporting and other general campaign requirements, including accessibility rights. Team members have experience handling matters such as PAC/Super PAC/Federal Elections Commission (FEC) filings and tracking and submitting disclosure reports as required by the Bureau of Elections. We can also help analyze, challenge, or defend ballot initiatives. When litigation is in the forecast, our attorneys are prepared to navigate the fast tempo often inherent to Election Law.

To ensure compliance and success, we approach every case with meticulous attention to detail. We are vigilant about filing deadlines, restrictions, and mandates at local, state, and federal levels. Our commitment to understanding your priorities underscores our dedication to your success. We assist at all stages of a campaign, fundraising, ballot proposal, or lobbying initiative, often consulting with clients at the earliest stages of assessment to ensure a smooth initial launch. When counseling on sensitive issues that can arise surrounding campaign contributions, fundraising, election crimes, compliance, and myriad laws governing elections, our primary goal is to lessen the burden on our clients—we know your focus must remain on your campaign and initiatives.
