Fort Lauderdale, Fla. — Linda Conahan, a shareholder with Gunster Yoakley, has been named by Governor Charlie Crist to be on the Florida Commission on Ethics for a two-year term.
The Florida Commission on Ethics is a nine-member Commission, with a staff of approximately 20 employees located in Tallahassee, that serves as the guardian of the standards of conduct for officers and employees of Florida and its political subdivisions. It functions as an independent commission responsible for investigating and issuing public reports on complaints of breaches of the public trust by public officers and employees. The Commission also renders legally binding advisory opinions interpreting the ethics laws and implements the State’s financial disclosure laws.
“It is an honor and a responsibility to serve on the Florida Commission on Ethics and to be part of this critical element in the legal community,” said Conahan. “I know I will be working closely with other dedicated citizens who share the perspective on how important it is to deal with the complex and sensitive issues that fall under the category of ‘ethics’.”
Conahan practices in the firm’s Fort Lauderdale office in the areas of media and communications law, defamation, invasion of privacy and First Amendment law, commercial litigation, corporate disputes, real property litigation and estate and trust litigation.
She is a graduate of University of Florida and earned her J.D. at the University of Florida College of Law. She resides in Boca Raton.
