Before joining IJ, Mr. Gilbert worked as a litigator for the U.S. Chamber Litigation Center, where he represented the Chamber in over 400 cases in federal and state courts addressing a host of important business law issues?from property rights to free speech?including nearly a hundred cases before the U.S. Supreme Court.
He has extensive experience in administrative, constitutional, and environmental law, and has been involved in some of the most consequential Supreme Court cases of the last decade in these areas, such as UARG, et al. v. EPA (limits on agency deference for ?major questions?) and NLRB v. Noel Canning (constitutionality of purported ?recess? appointments).
A native of the Mountain West states of Idaho and Utah, Mr. Gilbert nonetheless considers himself a carioca at heart after living two years in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
