Connor B. Walby


Connor Walby concentrates his practice on defending businesses in complex product liability and general liability litigation. He also frequently handles commercial disputes, premises liability, first party insurance litigation and auto warranty matters. 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 also routinely drafts responsive pleadings, dispositive motions, written discovery and pre-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 America College of Trial Lawyers, where he now serves as a coach. His involvement with the Moot Court program and the Business Law Society allows Connor to appreciate the complexities of his clients’ business needs.

A lifelong Michigander, Connor enjoys biking through Detroit and spending time with his family.
