Shutts & Bowen LLP is proud to announce that partners Bowman Brown and Harvey E. Oyer III have once again been recognized by Florida Trend Magazine’s prestigious Florida 500 - a list of influential business leaders throughout the state.
Bowman was listed this year as a “Living Legend,” while Harvey was one of only 38 lawyers included in this year’s edition. Both have been selected all four years that Florida Trend has published the Florida 500.
Florida Trend’s fourth edition of the Florida 500 is a comprehensive list of the state’s most influential business leaders spanning across more than 60 business industries. Florida Trend’s editorial staff engages in a massive initiative which is the result of extensive contacts in regional business circles, hundreds of interviews, and months of research, culminating in a highly selective biographical guide of the people “who really run Florida.” Inclusion is based on broad economic categories from the U.S. Department of Commerce, with the number of influential leaders in each sector roughly proportional to a category’s share of the state GDP.
