Practice Areas:

Kris Dunn is an attorney in Shutts & Bowen's Tallahassee office, where he is a member of the firm's Governmental and Administrative Law Practice Groups. Mr. Dunn advocates his clients’ interests before the legislative and executive branches of state government. His prior administrative law experience is central to representing clients who may face action or potential deprivations brought through any of the numerous state agencies that exist in Florida.

Mr. Dunn began his career as an Assistant State Attorney in the Second Judicial Circuit, where he honed his trial skills in the area of criminal law. He then transitioned from criminal law into complex civil litigation at the Department of Financial Services. As an Assistant General Counsel there, his knowledge of financial accounting and his ability to decipher business records made him an effective advocate in cases involving insurance regulation.

Prior to joining Shutts & Bowen, Mr. Dunn used his background in litigation and taxation as an Assistant Attorney General in the Revenue Litigation Bureau. Mr. Dunn tried 150 cases to verdict, with more than 45 of them being jury trials. His advocacy experience has allowed him to become familiar with the Second Judicial Circuit (where state agencies are sued) and the Division of Administrative Hearings (where the agencies’ actions are contested).

Mr. Dunn served in the U.S. Army as an Airborne Ranger, where he was a weapons squad leader. He has made more than 50 combat-loaded jumps and earned the Expert Infantryman's Badge and the Army Commendation Medal for his leadership abilities.

Mr. Dunn has lived in France and Austria and is conversant in both French and German.
