The American Bar Association has named Omaha lawyer Brandon Dickerson as the 2016 recipient of its Nonprofit Organizations Subcommittee’s Outstanding Young Lawyer Award.

Dickerson, a partner at the Omaha law firm of Likes Meyerson Hatch LLC, works with local and national nonprofit organizations, including community hospitals, on such matters as corporate governance, regulatory compliance, executive compensation and business transactions.

He is a 2007 graduate of the Creighton University School of Law, where he received the Judge Donald P. Lay Law Review Student Prize for his contributions to the Creighton Law Review. In 2015 and 2016, Dickerson was selected by his peers for inclusion as a Great Plains Super Lawyers “Rising Star” in the specialty of Mergers and Acquisitions.

The American Bar Association’s Nonprofit Organizations Subcommittee grants its Outstanding Young Lawyer Award to recognize an attorney who has made outstanding contributions to the nonprofit sector and/or the development of nonprofit law. It is one of five national awards the committee grants to lawyers in the nonprofit sector.

Other 2016 award recipients are Omaha native Thomas A. Troyer of Washington, D.C. (Vanguard Award for lifetime achievement); Judith Andrews of Seattle and Gene Takagi of San Francisco (co-recipients of the Outstanding Lawyer Award), and Shari Hibbert of Houston (Outstanding In-House Counsel Award).
