In 2016, Robert McHenry and Elizabeth Horan, who formed a successful partnership specializing in the defense of personal injury and medical malpractice litigation in 1983, began to consider the possibility of merging with a litigation firm which embodied the same comprehensive defense approach and ethical sensibility. The first and only name that came to both Bob and Elizabeth was Bower Law, P.C.
Having known Peter Bower for over 30 years, he was the embodiment of the type of lawyer both Bob and Elizabeth most admired, being well known throughout the industry as a successful and thoughtful litigator, and as a man of deep honesty and trustworthiness. In July of 2016, the three attorneys and friends met and quickly determined that a merger of the firms would benefit all, enhance the working environment of each, and provide the clients of both with enhanced legal representation.
On October 1, 2016, Bob McHenry and Elizabeth Horan merged their firm with Bower Law, P.C., joining not only Peter Bower, but his carefully selected partners and associate attorneys to form what we believe constitutes one of the finest, most experienced and innovative defense litigation firms in New York.
Our merged firm is comprised of trial attorneys who are second to none in experience and reputation consisting of not only Mr. Bower, Mr. McHenry and Ms. Horan, but Anina Monte, Howard Snyder, Douglas Stebbins and Michael Napoli. The partners are supported by a host of intelligent, inquisitive and enthusiastic associate attorneys. Our first year together has been marked by professional successes and personal gratification. We are delighted to welcome old and new clients to our merged firm as we continue to grow and provide excellent legal service in our industry.
