Taylor George focuses his practice on complex litigation, with expertise in labor and employment, construction and engineering cases, and business litigation. With a dual career path as a senior litigation counsel in private practice and as a general counsel for the United States Navy, Taylor has developed a unique experience set which provides him insight into client concerns from both the in-house and outside counsel perspectives. As an expert in complex litigation, Taylor leads a diverse practice with national-level clients, as well as servicing small businesses throughout Florida. Taylor has tried multiple cases before juries, with outstanding results, including a defense verdict in an engineering case for a water utility.

Taylor also has extensive appellate experience, successfully arguing before both federal appellate courts and state supreme courts. As a former federal law clerk, Taylor is skilled in federal and bankruptcy courts (creditors). His appellate victories include successfully extending federal diversity jurisdiction and the successful defense of a government retirement system with potential exposure of hundreds of millions of dollars.

Further, Taylor is also one of the few attorneys in the United States Armed Forces skilled in the law of armed conflict in all four warfare domains (air, sea, land, and special operations). He served a tour in Iraq in 2007-2008 with the Law and Order Task Force and has been assigned with the Marine Corps, naval aviation, and Naval Special Warfare. He currently is a reservist assigned to the Joint Staff at the Pentagon.
