Law firm re-elects managing partner
A local law firm has opted not to change its leadership.
Grand Rapids-based Warner Norcross + Judd said last week it re-elected Douglas Dozeman to serve as its managing partner.
Dozeman, who has 30 years of legal experience, will continue to oversee the firm’s management committee, which includes 10 members.
Dozeman is tasked with guiding the “firm’s strategic direction and continued growth” for the next two years.
Warner Norcross has eight offices across the state and 220 attorneys.
During Dozeman’s tenure as managing partner, Warner Norcross agreed to become the anchor tenant in the Warner Building, which will be its new headquarters. The $72-million, mixed-use development in downtown Grand Rapids is being built by Grand Rapids-based Orion Construction. The development is scheduled to be completed in 2019.
The firm also added 24 lawyers and created its Emerging Media and Connected Devices practice groups.
Dozeman, a Zeeland native, specializes in business litigation and represents businesses and individuals in complex civil litigation matters.
Dozeman is a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers and the American Bar Association.
He is also a board member for The Right Place and Hope Housing Commission.
He holds a B.A. from Calvin College and a J.D., magna cum laude, from the Wayne State University Law School.
