Warner Welcomes Experienced Litigator John MacKenzie as Partner

Warner Norcross + Judd LLP has welcomed John A. MacKenzie as partner. 

An experienced litigator, MacKenzie concentrates his practice on commercial litigation and real estate matters. His litigation practice focuses on high stakes “bet the company” cases, business torts, shareholder disputes, contract disputes, supplier disputes and employment claims. MacKenzie’s real estate practice brings a nuanced understanding of riparian rights and water laws, along with experience in residential and commercial transactions, land use and zoning challenges. He is based in the firm’s Macomb County office.

MacKenzie comes to Warner after seven years with Maddin Hauser Roth & Heller in Southfield, where he was a shareholder in the firm’s litigation and dispute resolution practice. He previously worked with Kopka Pinkus Dolin in Farmington Hills and served as corporate counsel for Atain Specialty Insurance Company, where he handled property and casualty insurance matters. While in law school, MacKenzie clerked for the Hon. Richard Caretti of Macomb County Circuit Court and as a legal clerk for The City of Highland Park.

MacKenzie received his bachelor’s degree from Oakland University and his law degree cum laude from Western Michigan University Thomas M. Cooley Law School, where he was associate editor of the Cooley Law Review.

Active professionally and in the community, MacKenzie is a board member for All Ways Cares Services, Inc. and Anchor Bay Community Foundation. He is a member of the State Bar of Michigan, Macomb County Bar and Oakland County Bar. MacKenzie has been frequently recognized for his work, including by Best Lawyers® “Ones to Watch,” Michigan Lawyers Weekly “Up & Coming Lawyers” and as a Michigan Super Lawyers “Rising Star.”

A native of New Baltimore, MacKenzie currently resides in Chesterfield with his wife, Jenny, and their two children.
