In addition to his litigation work, Mr. Gavin advises foreign clients, including government entities, on legal and policy matters involving the US courts, government and regulatory agencies.
Mr. Gavin comes to Rimon Law from his own practice, the Law Office of Stephen Díaz Gavin, based in Washington D.C. Prior to his own practice, Mr. Gavin also worked as a Senior Counsel at Crowell & Moring and was a partner at Patton Boggs for more than 18 years.
At Rimon, Mr. Gavin joins a strong team of cross-border attorneys, including recent additions Jill Williamson and Lisa-Marie Monsanto in Washington D.C., Emma Larson in Seattle, Robert Lee in Miami and Orlando, and Chris Terry in San Francisco.
The firm’s international practice group has been a particular source of strength.
