Bowman and Brooke Celebrates 30th Anniversary

news icon
February 1, 2015 marks Bowman and Brooke LLP's 30th anniversary—a milestone that, newly elected Firm Chair, Paul Cereghini says would not be possible without the trust of great clients and without the dedication of the firm's trial teams and staff.

Thirty years ago, nearly all of the firm's work was for the automotive industry. Today, Bowman and Brooke is the number one product liability firm for that industry, and is a go-to national firm for manufacturers of pharmaceuticals, medical devices, industrial equipment, chemicals and all kinds of consumer products.

Bowman and Brooke started as a trial firm, and the firm's attorneys have certainly been to trial. In the first 30 years, Bowman and Brooke attorneys have tried over 800 cases in more than 375 courthouses. They've tried cases in 48 states and have won major defense verdicts for many of the world's largest product manufacturers. Bowman and Brooke very much appreciates the trust their clients have placed in them for the past three decades and gratefully appreciates the hard work and dedication of the firm's trial teams and staff.

Founded on February 1, 1985, Bowman and Brooke opened with just seven partners, seven associates, nine paralegals and a core group of staff in two small offices—Minneapolis and Phoenix. Today, as a national trial firm, Bowman and Brooke proudly has 10 offices, coast-to-coast, with nearly 200 lawyers, and a full support staff.

In addition to celebrating three decades of service to its clients, Bowman and Brooke also announces that Paul Cereghini has taken the helm as the newly-elected Firm Chair and that David Graves, Jr. takes the lead as the newly-elected Firm Vice Chair.

As they look ahead, Bowman and Brooke anticipates another 30 years of being a powerful presence in the courtroom.
