Warner Norcross Partner Mary Jo Larson Honored By Leadership Detroit

Mary Jo Larson, a partner with the law firm of Warner Norcross & Judd LLP, is among a group of Leadership Detroit graduates who were honored earlier this month as “emerging leaders” at the 2012 Leadership Detroit Awards.

The award is the first ever made to a group and recognizes its members for continuing the work they began during their Leadership Detroit program to overcome racial lines in the city.  Normally Leadership Detroit programs end once the Leadership Detroit session itself concludes.

Larson, who concentrates her practice in employee benefits and executive compensation, is one of nine members of the group to earn the Emerging Leadership Award, which recognizes Leadership Detroit alumni who epitomize the spirit of lifelong leadership and community involvement.

Larson is recognized in Best Lawyers in America and Michigan Super Lawyers, which named her as one of the Top 50 Women Michigan Super Lawyers for the past four years.   She is also listed as a Top Lawyer in Employee Benefits by dbusiness magazine.

Larson is a member of the American Bar Association, the State Bar of Michigan and a fellow of the American College of Employee Benefits Counsel.  She serves on the board of Forgotten Harvest and is active in teaching and lecturing.
