Tim Green has been integrally involved in the development and growth of the firm’s client base, particularly in energy, intellectual property (IP), and national insurance coverage litigation. Since joining the firm in February 1999, Tim has overseen and managed some of the firm’s largest client relationships and major engagements including numerous Fortune 500 companies. Tim was instrumental in the growth in the firm’s IP practice area, which now totals more than 30 attorneys and IP professionals across the Northeast. Tim has also helped integrate general firm services into the operations of major manufacturers, high-tech companies, banks, and international conglomerates.

As a lead point of contact for the firm’s largest energy and utility clients with responsibility for all aspects of these relationships, Tim has represented electric power generators, Marcellus Shale oil and gas producers and pipelines, electric utilities and developers. In the transactional area, Tim has supervised the firm’s integration into deal matrices with national firms on acquisitions of power plants, including nuclear, hydro, coal, gas, and wind projects.

Tim is a New York Times best-selling author of suspense novels and children’s books. Tim travels the United States visiting schools, talking with children about the importance of education and reading. Tim uses all of his speaking fees to buy books for schools, libraries and kids who cannot afford them.

Because of his accomplishments both Sports Illustrated and the Los Angeles Times have called Tim Green “the Renaissance Man of Sports.” After an eight year career as a first-round draft pick with the Atlanta Falcons, Tim spent 11 years as an NFL analyst for FOX Sports, columnist for USA Today, hosted FOX’s nationally syndicated news magazine A Current Affair, legal commentator for NPR, ABC’s Good Morning America, Court TV’s Pros and Cons, host of the FOX Sports network’s Emmy-nominated show NFL Total Access, Comedy Central’s Battlebots and most recently, ABC’s Find My Family.
