Robert Williams with Burr & Forman LLP is the contributor for Doctor’s Life Legal Corner section. Rob has been a pleasure to work with and a very knowledgeable resource. It was no shock when I heard he had been awarded the highest award given by the Hillsborough County Bar Association’s Trial and Litigation section. The award is given annually to a trial lawyer who, during the course of a distinguished career, has exhibited fairness, integrity, courtesy, zeal, forensic skill, legal acumen, good sense and respect for his fellow lawyers. You can always measure a person easily when they display extreme passion for what they do, which they are and what they stand for. Rob has always displayed all the above with all of our conversations, every email and with every word he has ever written.
At Burr & Forman, Williams is a member of the firm’s Commercial Litigation practice group where he counsels clients in complex business, healthcare and securities litigation. He has successfully advised on a wide range of litigation matters, including disputes and claims related to breach of contract, business tort, securities fraud, real estate and construction, corporate governance and other business organization matters, statutory and constitutional tort, negligence and medical malpractice, employment discrimination and white collar criminal prosecutions.
It has been an honor to work with you and my honor to congratulate you. Looking forward to more of your insight and wish you many more accolades that demonstrate your character and professionalism. On behalf of myself and the entire Doctor’s Life team we thank you and celebrate your award.
“From sun-up to sun-down, although sometimes prone to pontificate, a nonpareil storyteller, a man of infinite wisdom, a lawyer’s lawyer and, most importantly, an outstanding friend and mentor, there are just not enough superlatives to describe Rob Williams; a most deserving recipient of the Herbert G. Goldburg Award!”
