McAfee & Taft elects Henry Hoss to 2017 board of directors

January 24, 2017

The shareholders of McAfee & Taft, Oklahoma’s largest law firm, have elected Henry Hoss as the newest member of its board of directors. He joins Tim Bomhoff, Jennifer Callahan, Stephen Hetrick, Michael LaBrie and Scott McCreary — all of whom were re-elected for another one-year term — as well as managing director Michael Lauderdale on the seven-member board.

Hoss is a trial lawyer who practices primarily in the areas of construction litigation and commercial litigation. He has extensive experience representing contractors, architects and owners in construction litigation, arbitration and mediation; manufacturers in products liability disputes; and buyers and sellers in commercial litigation involving the purchase and sale of aircraft. In the landmark case of Christian v. Gray, 2003 OK 10, 65 P.3d 591, he represented a defendant in an action where the Oklahoma Supreme Court adopted the Daubert standards for expert witnesses.

His achievements have earned him inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America and Oklahoma Super Lawyers.

Hoss holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from the University of Oklahoma and is a 1985 graduate of the University of Tulsa College of Law. In 2016, he was honored with the law school’s Outstanding Alumnus Award.
