BIA to honor Middleton for achievements

After spending 45 years as a trial lawyer and nearly a quarter-century as a New Hampshire District Court judge, Jack Middleton, senior member of the Litigation Department at McLane, Graf, Raulerson & Middleton in Manchester will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award.

The honor, bestowed by the Business and Industry Association of New Hampshire, will be given to Middleton at this year’s BIA Annual Dinner, scheduled for Tuesday, Oct. 18 at the Center of New Hampshire in Manchester.

“For more than half a century, Jack Middleton has committed himself to family, community, profession, state and country,” said George Gantz, BIA chairman and senior vice president of Unitil Corp. “In the process, Jack has become a role model for generations of state business leaders, and has made New Hampshire a better place to live and work.”

Middleton currently focuses on arbitration and mediation and serves on the Mediation Panel of the United States District Court and the New Hampshire District Court.

His long list of professional involvement includes membership in the ABA’s House of Delegates, the New England Bar Association, former president and former chairman of the New Hampshire Bar Association, the National Conference of Bar Foundations and the National Conference of Bar Presidents. Also a Life Fellow of the American Bar Foundation, Middleton’s civic involvement is extensive.

Recognized repeatedly on “The Best Lawyers in America” list, Middleton is named as one of the Granite State’s leading lawyers by Chamber U.S.A. and was recognized as the 2002 New Hampshire Business Leader of the Year.
