It is with profound sadness that Dunnington Bartholow & Miller LLP announces the passing of our esteemed and long serving partner George W. Gowen on March 14th. George joined the firm upon graduation from the University of Virginia Law School in 1957 and, except for a brief interval, spent his entire career at the firm. During that time George mentored and guided generations of attorneys at the firm. George represented a diverse group of clients, including individuals, corporations and charities. He was especially proud of having helped a client sell the The Guennol Lioness, a Mesopotamian statue for $57 million dollars, a record for a statue at the time. Among his clients were the United States Tennis Association, the Explorers Club, The Voltaire Society of America, and numerous individuals, many of whom became his close friends. George is survived by his two daughters, their husbands, and four grandchildren. He was predeceased by his beloved wife, Marcia.
