Robert A. Butterworth

Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney PC

Robert A. Butterworth received national recognition for his success in enforcing victim and consumer protection, environmental, civil rights and antitrust laws. Bob was a leader in the multi-state litigation against the tobacco industry, bringing $11 billion to the state, and was voted the top Attorney General in the nation by his peers.

In addition to his leadership in the multi-state litigation against the tobacco industry, he was responsible for the passage of numerous Florida statutes and was the impetus behind amendments to Florida’s Constitution expanding open government to all three branches of government and reforming the state’s antiquated Cabinet system.

As Secretary of the Florida Department of Children and Families, Bob made substantial improvements to the troubled department’s operations and successfully closed more than 800 cases involving litigation and appeals.

Twice, governors have called on Bob to serve as a troubleshooter: once, to head the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles, the parent agency of the Florida Highway Patrol, to reform that police force and implement diversity into its ranks, and, again, to serve as interim mayor of a South Florida city plagued by political corruption.

In addition, Bob has served as a county judge, circuit judge, prosecutor and Broward County sheriff. Drawing on his career in public service, Bob focuses his practice on government affairs, advising corporate and business clients in a wide range of matters. For instance, he recently assisted a utility and public entity with an integrity audit, helping them rebuild public trust.
