Thomas & LoCicero Partner Jon M. Philipson has been elected to the Board of Directors of WEDU-PBS

WEDU-PBS is West Central Florida’s PBS station. Serving 16 counties, WEDU-PBS “provides quality multimedia content and community outreach to [its] audience” as part of its mission “to educate, explore, and engage to inspire a lifetime of learning and discovery.”

When describing the opportunity, Mr. Philipson said, “PBS holds a special place in my heart. Growing up, I remember watching PBS at all hours of the day—from Sesame Street and Square One to Reading Rainbow. As an adult, PBS continues to teach and inspire me from Ken Burn’s documentaries and the American Experience series to All Creatures Great and Small. As a dad, I still get to enjoy my old favorites and new ones like Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Odd Squad, and Sid the Science Kid.

But WEDU-PBS is more than television, it provides endless educational resources for kids, such as its At-Home Learning program, and inspires lifelong learning through its locally focused programming, such as Can We Talk.

On a personal note, this opportunity brings me closer to my recently passed uncle, who dedicated himself endlessly to PBS-WYES in New Orleans as its long-time board chair. For me, PBS means family.”

Mr. Philipson is a Martindale-Hubbell AV Preeminent Peer Review Rated attorney and has been recognized by numerous publications, including Best Lawyers in America. His practice focuses on business litigation and counseling and defamation defense. Mr. Philipson also regularly serves as local counsel for out-of-state businesses sued or pursuing claims in all federal courts in Florida.

He also serves as a court certified arbitrator and as a Florida Supreme Court certified circuit civil mediator.

From offices in Tampa and South Florida, the firm focuses its practice on commercial litigation, media & entertainment law, intellectual property, and emerging technology law.
