Toby Dilworth has more than 25 years of trial experience, concentrating in commercial litigation, white collar defense, and internal investigations.

Toby’s civil practice involves tort, trade secret and commercial disputes. He appears regularly in federal and state courts at the trial and appellate levels. He recently won an appeal to the Supreme Judicial Court which established new law regarding Maine's Anti-SLAPP statute, and an arbitration award in excess of $1.7 million arising from a commercial dispute.  Toby also represents clients charged with criminal offenses in state and federal courts.  He achieved the dismissal of the Clean Water Act and conspiracy charges against his client in federal court in the Eastern District of Michigan, and the acquittal of a client charged with a $1.6 million securities fraud in the Maine Superior Court.

Lawyers and firms have retained Toby to represent them in professional malpractice and legal ethics cases. He has been retained as an expert witness by the Maine Board of Bar Overseers and private law firms regarding professional ethics and standards of care.

A former federal prosecutor, Toby successfully prosecuted the second case in the nation to go to trial under the Economic Espionage Act. The defendants were convicted of stealing trade secrets from a biotechnology firm. He also prosecuted some of the largest tax evasion cases in the history of the District of Maine, a case arising from a conspiracy to smuggle an avian influenza virus into the U.S., and a case involving the laundering of millions of dollars derived by an interstate prostitution ring. Toby received the Director’s Award from the U.S. Department of Justice for sustained superior performance as a federal prosecutor.

Toby is listed in Best Lawyers in America for Bet-the-Company Litigation, Commercial Litigation, and Criminal Defense: White Collar. He is also listed in the well-respected international directory of top lawyers, Chambers USA, and in the New England Super Lawyers Directory in the category of White Collar Criminal Defense. Best Lawyers has named him Portland, Maine Lawyer of the Year in the category of White Collar Criminal Defense in 2013 and 2017, an honor bestowed upon him by his peers. In addition, Benchmark Litigation, the definitive guide to litigation attorneys in the U.S., has named Toby as a 2013 Litigation Star in Maine. He has served as an adjunct faculty member at the University of Maine School of Law, teaching courses on trial practice and computer crimes and has lectured at seminars concerning intellectual property thefts, computer crimes, internal investigations, and trial advocacy.
