Nathan practices in the areas of healthcare and data security, advising clients facing government investigations and data breaches.
Nathan has extensive federal litigation experience as both a former federal prosecutor and federal judicial clerk in Orlando. While at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, he directed investigations into a variety of federal crimes, including financial and securities fraud, international money laundering and virtual currency, narcotics trafficking, violent crime, and international terrorism. Nathan also tried nine federal jury trials in less than four years. One of those trials resulted in a life sentence for a Pennsylvania man who sold synthetic opioids on the dark web. After another jury trial in 2018, he convicted a woman for participating in an international Ponzi scheme that defrauded dozens of Italian citizens out of over $14 million.
Nathan strives to understand businesses’ concerns and interests that extend beyond a particular lawsuit, and his goal is to find arguments that may achieve the best possible result for clients. Nathan originally joined Gunster in 2013 and returned in 2019 after his time at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. He earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees in history while working as a professional musician in Orlando. He still performs occasionally around Orlando benefiting charities such as Give Kids The World.
