Clients expect value, proficiency, and personal attention as they navigate government and internal investigations. Taylor English provides an excellent value-driven platform for my white collar practice. Taylor English gives clients the assurance that we will protect their interests in a cost-effective manner while maintaining focus on their strategic objectives.

William D. “Bill” Dillon is a member of Taylor English’s Litigation practice group who has managed complex litigation involving matters in Latin America, Australia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Germany, and throughout the United States. With more than 30 years of experience, his practice is centered on white collar, antitrust, and healthcare fraud defense.

He handles a wide range of white collar cases including complex FCPA investigations, criminal pharmaceutical and healthcare fraud matters, SEC investigations, international antitrust investigations, federal public corruption cases, mail fraud, money laundering, and domestic bribery cases.

Over the past three decades, Mr. Dillon has tried and won numerous jury trials in the 3rd, 5th, 6th, and 11th Circuits involving mail fraud, bid rigging, wire fraud, obstruction, extortion, bribery, price fixing and other conspiracy cases.

As a Senior Trial Attorney for the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice, he supervised investigative teams across the globe in gathering and compiling evidence in matters affecting global markets, particularly in the United States, Latin America, Europe, and Australia.
