Timothy Taylor has rejoined Holland & Knight as a litigation partner in the firm’s Tysons, Va., office, where he will focus on general commercial and employment litigation, as well as certain enforcement-defense matters.
Taylor has worked in both the Labor Department and the Treasury Department. He most recently served as Senior Counsel for Employment and Investigations for the Treasury Department’s Office of the Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery. He was the office’s principal adviser on employment issues and for policing companies and individuals suspected of pandemic-related misconduct.
He also acted as the Deputy Solicitor of Labor for the Labor Department. Taylor oversaw litigation and legal advice for the department’s roughly 500 attorneys, enforcing federal wage, workplace safety, retirement, and antidiscrimination laws.
“Tim will be a tremendous asset to our litigation practice and to our clients in their most significant employment litigation and white collar matters,” said John Brownlee, the leader of Holland & Knight’s Northern Virginia Litigation practice Group and the firm’s National White Collar Defense and Investigations Team.
From 2012 to 2018, Taylor practiced as a litigation associate in Holland & Knight’s Tysons office, with the exception of a one-year clerkship for Judge Harris Hartz of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.
“Holland & Knight is where I began my career and where I am so pleased to return,” Taylor said. “It’s a preeminent law firm with a collaborative culture that does spectacular work for its clients.”
