TAMPA, FL – Shumaker is pleased to announce that attorney Hannah M. Compton was selected to join the 2022-2023 Class of the Hillsborough County Bar Association (HCBA) Bar Leadership Institute.
The HCBA Bar Leadership Institute, which only accepts one attorney per firm each year, aims to identify and develop young attorneys of diverse backgrounds who have the potential to grow into future HCBA and community leaders. The annual program consists of monthly learning modules designed to develop professional and interpersonal skills, facilitate discussions on issues faced by legal professionals, and increase volunteer service in the community. The program concludes with a community service project that is chosen, managed, and completed by the leadership class.
“Hannah brings an unmatched energy to everything she touches,” observed Shumaker employment law partner Brad deBeaubien. “We couldn’t be more excited for her to join the HCBA Bar Leadership Institute, where we know she will continue to develop her leadership skills alongside other rising stars in the HCBA.”
With a membership of nearly 4,000 attorneys, judges, and legal professionals, the HCBA is one of the largest voluntary bar associations in Florida. Its mission is to inspire and promote respect for the law and the justice system through service to the legal profession and the community.
Hannah is an associate in Shumaker’s Labor, Employment and Benefits Service Line, where she represents employers and provides litigation defense for current and former employees. Her practice focuses on employment discrimination and wage cases, drafting employee handbooks and employment agreements, and conducting workplace trainings and workplace investigations for employers. Additionally, Hannah routinely works alongside her clients to counsel them on enforcement of non-competition and non-solicit agreements.
