Kahlil Amyn Day | Consultant

K.A. “Kahlil” Day, now a distinguished retired lawyer, is a consultant trained in law, negotiation, entrepreneurship, and risk management.  He successfully argued and briefed several thousand cases in state and federal courts, including the United States Supreme Court, and mediated more than 12,500 disputes following his first successful trial in federal court more than 40 years ago.

Having completed 30 years of service with The State of Florida on May 31, 2023 and 38 years of service as a member of the Florida Bar on February 1, 2024, Mr. Day is available to work with decision makers as a third-party intermediary to resolve disputes in a forward-looking manner, and to develop adaptive practices to mitigate and manage immediate, mid-range, and transferred risks.

Mr. Day joined the field of dispute resolution upon observing the psychological trauma and the financial burden that individuals, businesses, and governments sustain during protracted litigation. He works with parties to build unities of interest and effort, resiliency, and value-added outcomes. Additionally, he works to preserve relationships when this is mutually beneficial.

Mr. Day served the State of Florida as a mediator, General Master, senior attorney, and assistant public defender. He has a Bachelor of Arts from Cornell University as well as a Doctor of Jurisprudence from the University of Oregon, where he received the Law School Outstanding Advocate (Mock Trial) Award and was certificated in environmental law and ocean and coastal law. Over the course of his career, Mr. Day has been certificated in negotiation through the Program on Negotiation at Harvard Law School, entrepreneurship through the London School of Economics, environmental law through the Vermont Law School, climate emergency through the Saïd and Smith Colleges at Oxford University, leadership coaching through HEC Paris, and crisis management through the Yale School of Management.

Mr. Day has served on Bar and Mediation related committees for 30 years, joined in mediator ethics advisory opinions, contributed articles to legal, mediation, and risk management publications and has authored several conflict resolution books printed in limited edition. He is a life fellow of the American Bar Foundation, a founding member of Mediators Beyond Borders, and an alumni of Delta Kappa Epsilon, Phi Delta Phi, and the E. Robert Williams American Inn of Court.

Mr. Day is dedicated to facilitating effective, lawful, ethical processes, and able to listen, reflect, and ask difficult questions, as well as to encourage critical thinking to manage conflict. Away from the conference room, he is happy to recollect, over freshly brewed coffee, fishing for grayling in Alaska, parachuting from a DHC-2 Beaver over Lake Seneca, backpacking across Europe, crossing the Drake in an expedition ship, exploring Machu Picchu, ballooning over Masai Mara, whitewater rafting in the Himalayas, diving with reef sharks in Moorea, and other resiliency-building activities.
