Get to Know Templeton N. Timothy

What inspired you to pursue a law career?

Ever since I was young, I’ve always been passionate about communication and human nature. Much like language, art and music, I believe that the law has a very nuanced expression, and I believe that a lawyer’s true purpose is to be a translator for his or her clients, not just a counselor and advisor. After studying psychology and Spanish, the law became the next language in which I wanted to become fluent.

What skills do you draw upon when it comes to your specific practice areas?

In the world of asset recovery, related litigation is often happening simultaneously in multiple countries. The ability to see the forest through the trees and keep the big picture—my client’s overall goal—in mind throughout the fast-paced tribulations that span several time zones is a great skill that helps me every day. Asset recovery requires creative thinking to outsmart fraudsters who might have tried to cover their tracks and often have a head start. My ability to confront issues from angles that people often overlook is a critical advantage that elevates my practice.
