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.

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.
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
