Attorneys

Associate

R.J. CRONKHITE is a member of the firm’s Complex & General Litigation Practice Group. Mr. Cronkhite’s litigation experience encompasses a broad range of business and contract disputes; he specializes in technology disputes, corporate governance litigation, and competition law, including non-compete and non-solicitation enforcement.
 
Clients describe Mr. Cronkhite as a tenacious, unflagging, and engaged attorney whose “attention to detail and professionalism are two of the many qualities that set him apart from the rest.” Mr. Cronkhite obtains cost-effective results by quickly digging more deeply into the facts and law than opposing counsel, then leveraging his findings in favor of his clients.
 
Mr. Cronkhite closely collaborates with clients throughout the litigation process based on his conviction that the firm’s clients are business partners—not mere customers.
 
Michigan Super Lawyers® has recognized Mr. Cronkhite as a Rising Star in Business Litigation, an award granted to only 2.5% of Michigan attorneys under the age of 40. In 2018, he was elected by his peers to the Fellows of the American Bar Foundation, an honorary society comprising one percent of each jurisdiction's attorneys, judges, law faculty, and legal scholars whose public and private careers have demonstrated outstanding dedication to the highest principles of the legal profession and to the welfare of their communities.
 
Mr. Cronkhite currently serves as the Secretary of the Governing Council for the State Bar of Michigan Litigation Section. Mr. Cronkhite helped charter the Southfield Area Rotary Club (SARC) and currently serves on the SARC Board.
