The national law firm of Kirkpatrick & Lockhart LLP (“K&L”) is pleased to announce the expansion of its construction law practice with the addition of C. Grainger Bowman as of counsel. Bowman, a graduate of Dickinson Law School and Princeton University, will be resident in the firm’s Harrisburg office, where he will concentrate in the areas of construction and commercial litigation and public contract law.
Prior to joining the firm, Bowman was a statewide candidate for the Pennsylvania Superior Court in the 2003 judicial election campaign (Pennsylvania Bar Association rating: “Highly Recommended”). In his three decades of practicing law, he has served as a deputy district attorney of Dauphin County, law clerk to the President Judge of the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania, Dauphin Borough Solicitor for 17 years, partner with McNees Wallace & Nurick, and shareholder with Powell Trachtman Logan Carrle Bowman & Lombardo PC. In his construction law practice, Bowman has authored the legal column for the Associated Pennsylvania Constructor’s publication Highway Builder, and has served for more than a decade as general counsel for the American Institute of Architects – Pennsylvania. Professionally, he has served as chair and member of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Client Security Fund Board, and has chaired both the Pennsylvania Bar Association (PBA) Construction Litigation Committee and the governing council of the 4,000-member PBA Civil Litigation Section.
Commenting on Bowman’s arrival, Carleton Strouss, Administrative Partner of K&L’s Harrisburg office, said, “Grainger has 30 years of experience litigating in state and federal courts. He will be a welcome addition to the firm’s national construction law practice, and will play a vital role in expanding our practice in central Pennsylvania.”
