Leading Lawyers profiled partner Heidi Hennig Rowe for its January 2017 cover story, which highlighted how Rowe’s egalitarian upbringing has “shaped and fashioned her straightforward yet disarming style that has vaulted her among the elite in the field of construction law.”
Born in the Philippines and raised in New York, Rowe attributes her strong work ethic and inquisitive nature to her Filipino-American roots. These qualities have helped her build a reputation in the industry as “an astute, effective yet cordial opponent” who knows how to build bridges between opposing parties to get a deal done.
Today, Rowe represents some of the largest project owners and developers in the country. She has successfully negotiated—and litigated—complex contracts for high-profile, multi-million-dollar residential and commercial projects. The story cites multiple clients that have expressed deep confidence in Rowe to lead enormous projects involving high risk and large investments.
When it comes to client service, Rowe focuses on getting the job done: “All negotiations are driven by the clients’ business goals. We (as construction lawyers) have to find a way to figure out what those goals are and apply the law to that.”
