Calvin W. “Woody” Fowler, Jr. currently serves as Chairman of the Board, President and Chief Executive Officer of Williams Mullen, in addition to being a respected litigator. For businesses involved in legal disputes, Woody assists with complex commercial litigation, banking and financial services litigation, education litigation, consumer class actions, health care litigation, business torts, products liability and insurance coverage disputes.
For clients looking for alternatives to the courtroom, he is also experienced in alternative dispute resolution and serves as an arbitrator and mediator. Admitted to practice in the Commonwealth of Virginia since 1987, Woody has diverse and extensive litigation experience. He has helped companies in several industries with litigation, including colleges and universities, health care systems, insurance companies, nursing homes and assisted living facilities, and more.
While Woody is focused on helping his clients work toward their goals, he recognizes that just because you can do something does not mean you should. He works to gain a fuller understanding of what the client’s goals and objectives are and then takes those actions that will assist in reaching those goals and objectives. Sometimes the solution lies where you least expect it.
Legal project management principles are a great tool in increasing the efficiency of case management and maximizing the predictability of litigation expenses. Woody applies these principles to case analysis and strategy, staffing, information management and budgeting.
Woody serves on the board of directors of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce, Richmond Sportsbackers, Richmond Management Roundtable and the Virginia Foundation for Independent Colleges. He also serves on the board of directors for the American Heart Association’s Mid-Atlantic Region and their Greater Richmond Chapter.
