After quitting the Tallahassee office of Foley & Lardner in late August to represent former President Donald Trump in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents investigation, former Florida Solicitor General Christopher Kise has landed at national litigation, bankruptcy and government boutique Continental PLLC, the firm announced Thursday.

The arrival of Kise and his $3 million retainer corresponds with small firms’ increasing dominance of contentious litigation not only in the Trump orbit, but in Florida politics as well. Large firms have contributed to that shift, said boutique firm leaders in Tallahassee, by declining to take on polarizing right-wing clients such as Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis.
