With expertise across a range of business, personal, and family law practice areas, we are here to help you achieve the best possible outcome. 

Leading Lawyers in Southwestern Ontario

Our lawyers have a well-deserved reputation for excellence. Leading publications such as Best Lawyers® in Canada, the Canadian Legal Lexpert® Directory, and Canadian Lawyer Magazine have recognized our lawyers for their legal skill, industry knowledge, and client service.

The lawyers of McKenzie Lake have deep reservoirs of expertise in numerous industries and practice areas. We are proud to provide a range of services to the London and southern Ontario development community and maintain one of the largest family law departments in Southwestern Ontario.  Our litigation department offers representation in a range of matters including personal injury, contract disputes, tax matters, and the defence of professional negligence claims. With offices located in London, Guelph and St. Thomas, Ontario and an office in Victoria British Columbia, we are certain we can help service your legal needs.

A Collaborative Approach to Client Service

At McKenzie Lake, we take a collaborative approach to solving complex legal matters. Our 60+ lawyers are supported by dedicated and highly qualified administrative and legal staff. This approach has solidified our position as one of the most respected firms in Southwestern Ontario.

Here for You

To better meet our client needs, on July 4th, 2022, we announced the expansion of our business, real estate and litigation practice in Guelph, Ontario, with the addition of four talented partners and their team of dedicated staff. Since that time, our Guelph office has expanded further and now has eight lawyers including Personal Injury and Disability Law, Family Law, and Wills and Estates. For more information about our expansion, please see this article.

Here for Our Community

We are here for our community. Our lawyers and staff show up, engage fully and often, and give generously to causes that help to make Southwestern Ontario a better place to live, raise families, and conduct business. 

The founding partner of the firm, Angus McKenzie, bestowed a legacy of community support and caring. As a tireless fundraiser and supporter of numerous local charities, Angus passed on his passion for community service. Today, McKenzie Lake continues to encourage and embrace charitable and volunteer activities, including the provision of pro bono professional services.

Giving back to the community remains a cornerstone of our firm. We are proud to be supporting Joan’s Place, an initiative of Youth Opportunities Unlimited (YOU), which will provide housing and integrated services to at-risk youth in downtown London. We’ve also made a significant contribution to the Ronald McDonald House Room Refresh, which provides a home-away-from-home in the Children’s Hospital, United Way Elgin Middlesex and London’s multi-organ transplant team with sponsorship of its major fundraising event, Canvas For Life.

At McKenzie Lake, we work to give our clients insightful analysis and every advantage possible. Advantage. Created.
