Dean S. Nordlinger has joined Blank Rome’s Washington, D.C., office as a partner in the Corporate, M&A, and Securities group, which welcomed partner Stacy H. Louizos earlier this week in the New York office.

Nordlinger brings more than 20 years of experience representing privately held and closely held companies of all sizes, private equity firms, and entrepreneurs from a broad range of industries. He joins from Miles & Stockbridge, where he served as principal.

“Dean’s commitment to providing his clients with high-quality, value-based corporate services as well as his unique professional background in evaluating critical nuances in contractual language and agreements makes him a terrific addition to our firm,” said Grant S. Palmer, Blank Rome’s managing partner and CEO. “We are excited to welcome Dean to our Corporate group in Washington, D.C., and look forward to offering clients his engaging counsel throughout all phases of their business lifecycle.”

Nordlinger has extensive experience representing clients on both sides of corporate and transactional matters. Often serving as a virtual in-house counsel for his clients, his work includes representing businesses or individuals as buyers and sellers on mergers, stock and asset acquisitions and sales, management buyouts, spinoffs, joint ventures and other strategic transactions, and debt and equity financing transactions.

He also advises clients on a variety of other business and corporate matters, including entity formation, ownership structure, operating agreements, shareholders agreements, employee incentive compensation plans, non-compete agreements, loan transactions, and succession planning.
