Taylor English Duma LLP is pleased to announce the addition of Bill Dillon as a partner in the firm’s litigation practice.
Prior to joining Taylor English, Dillon founded and served as the managing partner of the Dillon Law Group, LLC, an Atlanta-based litigation boutique focused on white collar, antitrust, and healthcare fraud defense.
“We’re very excited and fortunate to welcome Bill to the Taylor English team,” said Marc Taylor, a founding partner of Taylor English. “With deep roots in Atlanta, Bill brings a global reach to the firm with 30 years of white collar experience and management of complex litigation matters in Latin America, Australia, Egypt, the Netherlands, and Germany. During the past three decades he has tried and won numerous jury trials and collected hundreds of millions in fines and judgments.”
As a Senior Trial Attorney for the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, Dillon supervised investigative teams around the world in gathering and compiling evidence in matters affecting global markets. His experience includes complex Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) investigations, criminal pharmaceutical and healthcare fraud matters, SEC investigations, international antitrust investigations, federal public corruption cases, mail fraud, money laundering, and domestic bribery cases.
Representing top executives and company presidents, Dillon has prevailed on their behalf in matters of healthcare fraud; antitrust compliance; real estate foreclosure fraud; international cartel investigations; an FCPA investigation in Latin America; the beverage industry; pharmaceuticals investigations and more.
Dillon has litigated complex sentencing issues involving white collar conspiracy matters involving more than $60 million in economic harm and has negotiated resolution of four price fixing cases within the international air cargo industry (Netherlands), along with “no-jail deals” for corporate employees in two healthcare fraud cases and pre-indictment dismissal of wire fraud charges in a securities case. His experience spans the supervision of a cartel investigation in the civil construction industry in Egypt and Germany, and a cartel investigation and “dawn raid” under the Mutual Legal Assistance Treaty (MLAT) in Australia with the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC).
His work has garnered high honors throughout the course of his career, including serving as Chairman of the State Bar of Georgia’s Antitrust Section, 2018; Attorney General’s Award for Distinguished Service, 2009; Hugh P. Morrison Award for Professionalism and Legal Precision, 2008; Antitrust Division Award of Distinction, 2006, to name a few.
Dillon’s articles are widely published. He is frequently a keynote speaker and presenter, both nationally and internationally, at prominent legal forums.
Dillon earned his undergraduate degree from the University of Louisiana and his law degree from the University of Alabama School of Law.
