Government Relations Attorney Jonathan Kilman Joins Firm.

Foley announced today that government relations attorney Jonathan Kilman has joined the firm’s Orlando and Tallahassee offices in its Government & Public Affairs Practice.

Kilman will focus his practice on representing public and private clients in public affairs and government relations, community relations, litigation, appellate and administrative matters. He has broad experience representing private clients and state agencies, including advising the State Technology Office in procurement matters, and representing the Florida House of Representatives in litigation and appeals related to the redistricting of Florida’s state and federal legislative districts. In 2004, he represented the Florida Secretary of State in state and federal election litigation and appeals. Most recently, Kilman served as legal counsel for the Charlie Crist for Governor Campaign. As such, he advised the campaign on a host of issues.

“Jonathan’s experience advising government agencies will be a great resource in growing and developing the firm’s Public Affairs Practice in Florida and beyond,” said Orlando Managing Partner Michael Gay. “His experience providing legal services in litigation and government matters will be a great resource for our Florida business clients.”

The announcement comes on the heels of Republican lobbyist Michael Harrell and former Department of Management Services Secretary Robert Hosay and Chris Kise, head of the firm’s Appellate Practice, joining the firm’s Tallahassee office in July. Kise has since left to serve within the Crist Administration as Counsellor to the Governor.

Kilman comes to Foley from GrayRobinson, P.A., where he was elected the youngest shareholder in the firm’s history and serve as a member of the government, litigation, technology business law and technology licensing practices. Previously, he worked as an associate in the Boston office of Skadden, Arps, Slate Meagher & Flom LLP, where he represented clients in mergers and acquisitions, venture capital financing and intellectual property. Kilman also clerked within the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the District of Massachusetts.

Kilman earned his juris doctorate from Harvard Law School and his bachelor’s degree from the University of Florida.
