Attorney Ben Hammond awarded Grand Rapids Business Journal ‘40 Under Forty’
Attorney Ben Hammond, along with 39 other business leaders in West Michigan under the age of 40, were honored at an Oct. 16  reception and featured in a special Grand Rapids Business Journal supplement. The awards acknowledge up-and-coming leaders who are providing “business and community leadership and making a difference.”

After becoming a partner at his former law firm, Hammond made the leap with Steve Hilger to form the law firm Hilger Hammond, PC. A significant portion of Hammond’s law practice concerns construction law, where he is routinely engaged in complex litigation. His clients are representative of all parties involved in construction, including owners, design professionals, general contractors, subcontractors, and suppliers. The remainder of Hammond’s practice involves commercial and residential real estate transactions, business law, and commercial litigation.  Being a business owner himself helps Hammond relate to the challenges his clients face every day.

Hammond is a member of the Western Michigan Chapter of the American Subcontractors Association board, professional affiliate director of the American Institute of Architects-Grand Valley Chapter and a trustee of the Grand Rapids Bar Association.

He is also involved in a number of West Michigan volunteer activities including the American Council of Engineering Companies of Michigan, Associated General Contractors of America, State Bar of Michigan Legal Advisory Committee, Habitat for Humanity, Renucci Hospitality House and the West Michigan Construction Advancement Forum.
