Rebecca Bowen’s legal work is a blend of business and family matters – and sometimes, both at once, particularly in issues of succession and estate planning. She helps clients proactively address their legal needs — before a client’s legal needs address them.
Responsive, efficient, and compassionate in her approach, Rebecca is trusted by individuals and families to create estate plans that address uncomfortable but real questions around one’s wishes in the event of death or disability. For business owners, Rebecca is there for clients in all stages of a company’s lifecycle, helping entrepreneurs and licensed professionals form their entities, transact business, and, years later, create a proper succession plan to successfully exit. She also represents individuals, banks, and trust companies on various estate and trust administration matters.
At ThompsonMcMullan, “we have a long-standing reputation in the legal community for providing creative, practical and efficient solutions to difficult problems,” she says. “As a team, we provide guidance and prefer not to ‘over-lawyer’ a situation, we perform our work clearly, and we remain accessible to our clients.”
Originally from Northern Virginia, Rebecca has made Richmond home with her husband, two young children, and adopted dogs. When not in the office (or chasing after her kids), and if there’s time left over in a day, you’ll find her on a yoga mat.
