Press Release: David H. Travers Joins Bowditch & Dewey as a Business Litigation Partner

Bowditch & Dewey today announced that David H. Travers has joined the firm as a partner in the Business Litigation Practice, which includes more than 20 litigators in Massachusetts.

David concentrates his practice in construction contracting, dispute resolution, and business litigation matters. He has handled many complex litigation matters for members of the construction industry on both civil and vertical construction projects. He represents owners, design-builders, construction managers, general contractors, subcontractors and suppliers, managing their claims while focusing on dispute avoidance and early resolution.

Apart from his work with the construction industry, David boasts a business litigation practice that includes business ownership disputes, non-competition agreement litigation, wage and hour litigation, commercial loan disputes, easement and real estate boundary disputes.

“We are delighted to welcome Dave to Bowditch & Dewey,” said Managing Partner James D. Hanrahan. “His expertise and experiences in construction and business litigation adds a further dimension to our firm’s highly regarded litigation practice.”

“I am delighted to join Bowditch & Dewey’s impressive litigation team,” said Travers, who will work in the firm’s Boston office. “I look forward to contributing to the continued growth of our Business Litigation Practice.”
Before joining Bowditch, David was an attorney with Todd and Weld and Hinckley Allen. He graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is a graduate of Suffolk University School of Law, where he served as an editor of the Transnational Law Review.

David was honored as a “Massachusetts Rising Star” in New England Super Lawyers in Boston Magazine every year since 2012, and was named a “2014 Up & Coming Lawyer” by Massachusetts Lawyers Weekly. He has written for several professional publications, and is the author of numerous articles, including “Recovering on Broken Promises: Prosecuting Claims Against Architects Arising from Promises to Pay for Additional Work”, and “Claims for Lost Profits Given New Life in Termination Context,” both for the Construction Industry of Massachusetts Construction Journal.
