He rejoined Gunster in 2019 after serving for more than three years as a federal prosecutor in the United States Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Florida. As an assistant United States attorney, Nathan directed investigations into variety of federal crimes, including financial and securities fraud, international money laundering, narcotics trafficking, and violent crime. He became a Joint Terrorism Task Force prosecutor in 2018 and led investigations related to national security and international terrorism.
Nathan tried nine jury trials in federal court while at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. One of those trials resulted in a life sentence for a man who sold synthetic fentanyl anonymously over the dark web. After that trial, he joined the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Virtual Currency Initiative in training law enforcement agents about virtual currency investigations. After another jury trial in 2018, Nathan convicted a woman for defrauding dozens of Italian citizens out of over $14 million.
Nathan now practices primarily in federal court and has represented clients in a variety of matters, including defense of professional liability claims and civil enforcement proceedings and white-collar criminal defense. Nathan earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees in history while working as a professional musician in Orlando. He still performs occasionally around Orlando for charity. Before law school, Nathan taught American History at the University of Central Florida and Rollins College.
