Beau D. Hollowell

Beau focuses his national practice on antitrust, consumer fraud, employment, and securities fraud class action litigation. He has won multiple bench and jury trials and has successfully argued federal- and state-court appeals.

Beau has represented and advised clients in proceedings before state and federal courts in Alabama, California, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, Puerto Rico, Wisconsin, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. He began his career with one of the premier trial firms in Cleveland, Ohio. He next handled complex commercial litigation matters for two sophisticated investor groups with approximately $600 million in assets throughout the United States and Europe. After that, he led a statewide practice group for one of the largest litigation firms in the country.

Beau has represented large businesses and insurance companies in high-value cases in various practice areas. He has also lectured and written extensively, including co-authoring an article that appeared in a national publication and reappeared in a national online journal with 45,000 monthly readers. Beau continues to write articles discussing recent trends, while also presenting seminars on numerous topics at national and regional conferences.

After earning his Bachelor of Arts in English from Westminster College in 2002, Beau graduated from Case Western Reserve University School of Law in 2006. The School of Law awarded him the Paul J. Hergenroeder Award and CALI Award for his achievement as top student in Trial Tactics. He also served as a research assistant for two nationally known and published professors: Professor William Carter (dean of the University of Pittsburgh School of Law), whose articles have been published in many well-known journals, including the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review, and Professor Peter Gerhart (former dean of Case Western’s Law School). Through Case Western’s International War Crimes Lab, Beau also prepared a memorandum addressing the jurisdiction of military commissions to preside over trials in Guantanamo Bay Naval Base—a topic debated nationally in many fora, including National Public Radio. Beau prepared this memorandum at the direction of the United States Department of Defense.

Beau is a member of various professional bar associations and was selected to serve as president of the New Partners Board for the Cleveland Hearing and Speech Center. The Center is the nation’s oldest freestanding speech center and is Northeast Ohio’s only nonprofit organization directed solely to serving those with special communication needs. Beau has also participated in Big Brothers of America. Recently, Westminster College selected Beau to serve on its Alumni Council, where he emphasizes alumni relations and donations through the Council’s Annual Giving Committee, which committee the College selected Beau to chair.
