Fowler White Boggs P.A.

THE SCOOP

Fowler White Boggs is one of Florida's most prominent and prestigious law firms. Headquartered in Tampa, one of its five Florida locations, its self-proclaimed "enviable client list" includes AT&T, Bank of America, Big Lots, Inc., GE, NBC-Universal, State Farm Insurance, Tropicana Corporation and Verizon Wireless.

A Floridian Firm

Born the same year, hailing from Southern states, and with deep and longstanding involvement in Florida law and community service, Cody Fowler (a relative of Wild West showman "Buffalo Bill") and Morris White finally realized they had a lot in common and joined forces in 1943 to found the firm today known as Fowler White Boggs. The firm was known as Fowler White Boggs Banker until 2008, when name partner Robert E. Banker and two other Fowler White Boggs lawyers left to start their own firm. Fowler White Boggs has been ranked by Chambers 2012 as one of Florida's leading law firms in the areas of Bankruptcy/Restructuring, Healthcare, Immigration, Insurance, Labor & Employment, Real Estate: Zoning/Land Use, and Tax. Lawyers from the firm regularly receive regional accolades from Florida Legal Elite and Florida Super Lawyers, along with national accolades like Best Lawyers in America 2013, an edition in which 56 lawyers were recognized.

An Apple a Day Keeps the Lawyer Okay

Fowler White Boggs is committed to its attorneys' well-being and provides its employees with healthy perks like personalized health coaching, workplace yoga and fitness classes and massages. It has received several awards for its wellness-consciousness, including being the only firm in the Tampa Bay area and one of a few nationally to be awarded the American Heart Association's Platinum-level Fit-Friendly distinction.  

Tampa Heart

The founders' commitment to community service carries over into the firm's present day. The firm runs donation drives and sponsors events to support organizations like the American Red Cross, United Way, and Tampa-based domestic abuse-relief organization The Spring. Fowler White Boggs also helped sponsor a chair for Bay Area Legal Services, which provides legal assistance for individuals, families, and groups that cannot afford a lawyer.

Fowler White University

Bad news for grads who never want to hear the word "university" again: Fowler White Boggs provides its summer associates and newly minted attorneys with continuing education courses under its Fowler White University program. But don't be too down on it-the courses are more like informal training and orientation sessions, and the subject offerings are practical and fun things you wouldn't necessarily learn in law school, like "How to Order Wine at a Business Dinner," "Billing Essentials" and "How to Make Good Writers Great."
