Connor Walby concentrates his practice on defending manufacturers in complex product liability and general liability litigation. He also handles multifaceted commercial disputes, California auto warranty matters under the  Song Beverly Act and has coordinated all discovery activities for a multinational vehicle manufacturer in California. Having joined Bowman and Brooke as a summer associate, Connor quickly learned how to develop a rigorous defense for his clients, from case inception to trial and appeal. 

Apart from conducting extensive legal research, Connor routinely drafts responsive pleadings, dispositive motions, written discovery, and pre and post-trial motions. 

While obtaining his juris doctor from Wayne State University Law School, Connor served as the President of the Entrepreneurial and Business Law Society, as well as the Vice Chancellor for the school’s Moot Court program.  Connor also competed in the National Moot Court Competition sponsored by the American College of Trial Lawyers, where he now serves as a coach.
