Adam Nolan Tabor Managing Associate Public Policy


Adam Nolan Tabor brings prior public policy and litigation experience at the federal, state, and tribal governmental levels to Orrick’s Public Policy Group.

A Managing Associate in our Seattle office, Adam draws upon past public policy and litigation experience across various industry sectors and at multiple levels of government. With a litigation bent, Adam represents clients in court and before regulatory agencies (sometimes both) to accomplish the clients’ ultimate goals in the public policy arena.

The litigation aspect of Adam’s practice at Orrick spans the areas of public utility, energy, natural resources, consumer protection, tax, government contracts and procurement, education, and constitutional law. Adam has represented clients, including state and local governments, and private clients in several of these areas.

When out of litigation mode, Adam advises clients with multi-state compliance issues, whether clients are concerned that state regulators and attorneys general might well investigate them or such public enforcement has already begun.

Adam also maintains a diverse pro bono practice, ranging from litigation experience in “crimmigration” (cases where criminal and immigration law overlap) to helping non-profit organizations ramp up and wind down their affairs.

Before joining Orrick, Adam worked at a large law firm in Washington, D.C. focusing on litigation, regulatory, and governmental relations at the federal and tribal levels of government. Immediately after law school, Adam clerked for a federal circuit judge in the Ninth Circuit and a federal district judge in the Southern District of West Virginia.
