James Gilliland, an intellectual property partner at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton, was shot and killed on his front porch in El Cerrito, California, on Thursday evening.

Police said Gilliland, 62, was shot shortly before 9 p.m. as he was returning to his home from a social engagement, report the San Francisco Chronicle, the East Bay TimesNBC Bay Area and the Recorder (sub. req.). El Cerrito police Lt. Robert De La Campa told the Chronicle it wasn’t known whether Gilliland was stalked or followed, or whether he was a robbery victim.

Gilliland was chairman of Townsend & Townsend & Crew from 2001 to 2010, before it merged and became Kilpatrick Townsend, according to the Recorder. He was chairman of the firm’s litigation department from 2013 to 2015. His clients included Apple, Oracle and Sony.

Kilpatrick managing partner Susan Spaeth expressed condolences and called him “an absolute pillar” of the law firm in a statement published at the firm’s website.

“We are deeply saddened by the death of our colleague, friend and partner, Jim Gilliland,” Spaeth said. “Our most heartfelt condolences and sympathies go to Jim’s family and all of his colleagues, friends and clients.

“Jim was dedicated to his wife, Vickie, his four children and his parents. They were the center of his life. His passions spanned from spending time with his family to singing, enjoying the arts, travel and sports.

“Jim was an absolute pillar of our law firm. He was our trusted colleague and close friend, as well as a mentor and role model to so many. Jim will be missed deeply. He was truly a great lawyer, and his many clients trusted him with their most difficult cases. Jim had been successfully trying cases in federal and state courts around the country for 35 years. Over his amazing career, Jim led our firm in many ways—as managing partner, chairman, and most recently served as chairman of our litigation department.

“It is truly a great loss for the Kilpatrick Townsend family and the legal community. We offer our thoughts and prayers to Jim’s family and friends.”
