Woody Fowler Re-Elected to Fourth Term as President and CEO of Williams Mullen

Williams Mullen is pleased to announce that Calvin W. “Woody” Fowler, Jr. has been re-elected to serve a fourth three-year term as president and CEO of the firm.

Upon taking the top leadership role in 2015, Fowler made significant changes in the firm’s leadership structure, introduced a long-term strategic plan, and set a new direction for the firm. Throughout his tenure, the firm has focused on providing an exceptional client experience, maintaining a strong firm culture, developing operational excellence, and growing purposefully. As a result, Williams Mullen has enjoyed nine consecutive years of increased revenue and increased profits by an average of 11.2% per year. The firm has also been consistently recognized as a best place to work and has received a score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Corporate Equality Index for six consecutive years.

Recent lateral additions have added depth and breadth to key practice areas, and the firm will continue to pursue strategic growth in its Virginia, North Carolina, and South Carolina markets.

“I am honored to lead Williams Mullen and to work alongside our outstanding team members to deliver exceptional legal services to our clients,” said Fowler. “Through continued hard work, planning and execution, excellent client service, teamwork and accountability, we are well positioned to build upon our accomplishments, and I look forward to the opportunities ahead.”
