Dilworth Paxson Adds Litigation Attorney Timothy J. Ford
Ford focuses his practice in the areas of complex litigation, investigations, and appeals, with an emphasis on the public sector, including political and election law and ethics investigations. He counsels clients in all phases of high-stakes, sensitive litigation and investigations, from pre-litigation advice, pleadings, motions practice, and discovery, through trial and appeal.
Ford’s background also includes government and politics experience at the state and federal levels, having worked on campaigns and in government, and in the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. Representative matters include constitutional litigation in state and federal court, nomination petition challenges and defenses, and campaign finance and public ethics investigations.
“Dilworth Paxson is always looking for talented lawyers who have demonstrated a commitment to the practice and the community,” said Dilworth Litigation Chair Thomas Biemer. “Tim more than fits the bill and we are thrilled to welcome him.”
Prior to joining Dilworth, Ford served as a law clerk to the Honorable Timothy J. Savage on the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He also worked as an associate in a Washington, D.C. law firm where he focused on litigation and investigations in international trade and a Philadelphia law firm where he practiced commercial litigation and election law.
Ford is a graduate of Stanford University (B.A.) and University of Michigan Law School (J.D.) where he graduated cum laude and served as the executive editor on the Michigan Law Review.
