Warner Partner Appointed Chair of Michigan Attorney Discipline Board

The Michigan Supreme Court has appointed Jonathan E. Lauderbach, a partner with Warner Norcross + Judd LLP, as chairperson of the Michigan Attorney Discipline Board. 

The Attorney Discipline Board is the adjudicative arm of the Michigan Supreme Court for the discharge of the constitutional responsibility to supervise and discipline Michigan attorneys. The ADB appoints hearing panels to conduct the trial-level proceedings and hears petitions for review of decisions by those panels.   
Lauderbach, who is based in the firm’s Midland office, began his term as chair on Oct. 1. He has served on the board since 2015 and was vice chairperson in 2018.
A former circuit judge, Lauderbach focuses his practice on litigation and resolution of disputes arising out of commercial transactions and government affairs. In 2018, Lauderbach was named as a Leader in the Law by Michigan Lawyers Weekly. Currently, he is recognized by Michigan Super Lawyers.
Lauderbach was one of two attorneys who helped to launch the firm’s Midland office in 2013. The office has grown to 19 attorneys, legal professionals and staff who serve clients throughout the Great Lakes Bay region and beyond. He is also a member of the firm’s Management Committee.
Lauderbach is active in the community as well. In 2018, he was elected to a four-year term on the board of education for the Midland Public Schools. He is a past chair of the board of the Midland Area Chamber of Commerce and has served as a director of Midland Business Alliance.
