Currently serving as General Counsel under Speaker Will Weatherford, Nordby also acted as General Counsel to Florida’s Secretary of State and, through his private practice, as outside General Counsel to the Republican Party of Florida. He is current chair of The Florida Bar’s Administrative Law Section and a member of the Florida Supreme Court Judicial Nominating Commission.

Nordby joins Jason Gonzalez and former Lt. Gov. Bobby Brantley as a partner in the firm’s Tallahassee office.
