Experience and About

Experience and About – Adam Daley Wilson


Adam Daley Wilson practiced for almost a decade at leading international law firms in Washington, D.C. and San Francisco (e.g., Gibson Dunn & Crutcher, Crowell & Moring) preparing federal civil litigation for trial, appeals, ADR, and settlement (antitrust, intellectual property, and complex litigation).  He has subsequently served as the mediator in approximately 200 business and financial disputes.

He clerked for two years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit for the Honorable Franklin S. Van Antwerpen, where he was asked to clerk a second year based on his year one performance.

In the above positions he was repeatedly tasked with brainstorming, building, and writing persuasive legal arguments in some of the most difficult areas of federal practice.  His training and experience as a federal practice generalist and federal courts writing specialist — the outside legal generalist-specialist — gives him a combination of analytical rigor, intellectual creativity, factual and legal accuracy, and efficiency with respect to preparing high-level written work product for federal district courts and courts of appeals.

Adam Wilson now lives and works nationwide from Portland, Maine.  He is admitted to practice law in California (1999), Washington, D.C. (2001), and Maine (2009).

Education:  J.D., Stanford Law School, 1999.  Stanford Law Review.  Moot Court.  B.A., University of Pennsylvania, 1994.

By night, he is a successful emerging conceptual and post-conceptual artist, creating text-based installations and text-based oil paintings, many of which explore constructs of law and jurisprudence.  His large / oversized works currently sell in the low five figures and are in corporate and private collections in the U.S. and abroad.  Recent jury-selected exhibitions were in London and New York City (twice).  The growth of this parallel career as an emerging artist explains the origins of this contract-based federal practice legal service for attorneys and law firms.
