Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney
and Fowler White Boggs
are pleased to announce their merger, completed on March 14, 2014. Buchanan’s national platform and client-focused strategy combined with Fowler White’s prominent Florida foothold provides an even stronger position to offer the services, efficiencies and focused experience our clients count on to succeed.
It is the firm’s mission to make sure clients know greater service, know greater efficiency, know greater value and know greater partnership.
Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney was founded in 1850, as a firm dedicated to providing client service and partnership marked by legal excellence, sound judgment and a clear understanding of clients’ needs, direct communication and common-sense practice. The firm’s roots have shaped its work ethic and integrity, as it continues to strive toward client service that is second to none. The firm is also a dedicated community member with a long history of involvement in organizations that help drive economic and social well-being.
Buchanan believes in partnership. Clients today are looking for more than transactional relationships with their law firms. They’re looking for sustainable valued partnerships. They need partners who can think and act as an extension of their own internal teams – smart and collaborative professionals that already know their industry, are up on their issues and can anticipate their needs. This partnership requires a smarter and more efficient sharing of knowledge, ideas, advice and answers.
Founded in 1943 by two veteran Tampa lawyers, Fowler White is internationally connected while maintaining a strong Florida focus. The firm’s founding partners have guided the firm’s exalted achievement and community service, which has been upheld by the lawyers who have helped build Fowler White Boggs into one of Florida’s most well established and well known law firms.
The firm is one of the few firms led by a woman CEO, which merited its Women in Law Empowerment Forum’s Gold Standard Certification for integrating women into the highest levels of firm leadership. The Firm has two practicing former Florida Bar Presidents and two former governors’ chiefs of staff, as well as former state cabinet level secretaries. It is at the forefront of the economic development, business, government, and education sectors of the Florida marketplace.
Fowler White has a proven track record of making strategic choices, adapting and repositioning according to client needs, building on its core strengths, and embracing new opportunities.
