Florida Power & Light Co., under fire for using investigators to contact members of the jury that hit the company with a $37 million award in March, has recruited another lawyer to aid its cause. And this one knows something about representing companies with a bruised public image.

FPL has turned to Miami lawyer Edward Moss to defend it in a potential judicial investigation of FPL’s post-trial conduct in the Jill Goldberg case.Moss, of the Miami office of Shook Hardy & Bacon, has been representing the tobacco industry, and specifically, Brown & Williamson Tobacco Co., for years.

Closing arguments in that case are scheduled for Monday.
