Lawyers who understand business

Our experience enables us to provide streamlined business solutions to our clients.


McKenzie Laird, PLLC was founded in 2010 by Donald McKenzie and Robert Laird when they combined their solo practices to more effectively serve their business clients and their transactional practices. In addition, the firm provided a broader base for Rob’s Innovative Business Law initiative to serve essentially as general counsel to smaller clients and provide them assurance of general corporate services within an appropriate budgetary framework.

Talbott Ottinger and Justin Leach joined forces with Donald and Rob in 2013 and 2016, respectively, to focus on providing more personal client service and gaining a deeper understanding of their clients’ businesses. With Nashville’s explosive growth and booming real estate market, Talbott and Justin have established themselves as trusted counsel to a wide range of clients with commercial real estate needs. As their practices flourished, leading them to grow the firm’s real estate team, the natural next step was for Talbott and Justin to join Donald and Rob as members of the firm in 2018.
