Hill Ward Henderson

Since its inception in 1986, Hill Ward Henderson has grown steadily, while based on a client-focused philosophy that combines the talent, resources, and technologies of a large firm with the attention of a smaller firm. The firm has as its cornerstone an obligation and a commitment to our valued clients of integrity, professionalism and timely, efficient delivery of legal services. We want to be our clients' law firm 50 years from now, and we build our relationships with that in mind.

Hill Ward Henderson started with a vision of a unique law firm — one that would combine the expansive talent, resources, capabilities and technologies of a larger firm with the responsiveness and personal attention of a smaller firm, to deliver powerful, personal service to every client. This idea for an innovative, client-focused firm grew out of the longstanding relationships and collective experience of three of the area's leading attorneys, Benjamin H. Hill, III, David E. Ward, Jr., and Thomas N. Henderson, III. Acting on this vision, on May 1, 1986, these three and four others established Hill Ward Henderson.

As we have grown, our priorities have remained the same. Hill Ward Henderson has as its cornerstone an obligation and a commitment to our valued clients to provide the highest degree of integrity, professionalism and competence to ensure the timely, efficient delivery of high quality legal services. The dividend to our firm has been the long-term relationships we have developed with our clients and with the Tampa community.

Hill Ward Henderson has been named a 2022 Go-To Thought Leader by the National Law Review for Insurance Coverage Law. In September of 2022, Hurricane Ian made landfall in Southwestern Florida, sending shockwaves through the local economy, displacing residents and devastating infrastructure. Authors Matthew F. Hall, Timothy A. Hunt, Brett J. Preston, and Erik P. Raines provided extensive insight into what individuals and businesses should look for in their insurance policies in the face of this unprecedented weather event. 

Attorneys S. Gordon HillJeffrey J. Wilcox and Ryan M. Guerin of Hill Ward Henderson have been named 2021 Go-To Thought Leaders for their coverage of 2021 Florida COVID-19 legislation, tirelessly detailing ongoing state policy shifts as the pandemic has progressed. Of particular note is their coverage of Florida’s S.B. 72, which shields businesses from civil liability for COVID-19-related claims.

Hill Ward Henderson’s Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Group was named a 2019 National Law Review Go-To Thought Leader for the outstanding thought leadership the practice group provides businesses, nonprofit and governmental entities on Internal Revenue Service (IRS) developments and programs, US Department of Labor (DOL) regulations, executive compensation, and fiduciary matters. The group provides valuable news and analysis concerning 401(k), profit-sharing plans, 457 and 403(b) plans, defined benefit plans, ESOPs and other stock-based employee benefits, and health, welfare, and other fringe benefit plans.  Al Ward, Kirsten L. Vignec, Bret Hamlin, and Timothy P. Zehnder generously share their depth and breadth of experience with the National Law Review’s readers by consistently publishing practical and timely articles.
