Dilworth Paxson LLP announced today that Michael Tierney rejoined the Firm’s Corporate and Real Estate practices, resident in the firm’s Philadelphia office. Michael’s return marks the continuation of a 20-year legacy after a brief departure last year.
“We are thrilled to welcome Michael back after a brief hiatus,” said Dilworth Chairman Larry McMichael. “His more than 20 years of experience at Dilworth and myriad of community and political contacts are an asset to the Firm. We look forward to picking up where we left off and continuing our overall growth strategy through lateral hires.”
Michael concentrates his practice in a wide variety of corporate and real estate matters, including mergers and acquisitions, private equity financings, fund formation, corporate governance issues, zoning, land use, and tax assessment appeals. Among other engagements, he was lead counsel representing the group of local investors who purchased The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Philadelphia Daily News and philly.com from The McClatchy Company for $562 million.
“I was drawn back to Dilworth after seeing the changes underway at the firm and its economic success, said Tierney. “My brief departure proved that Dilworth provided the best platform for my work in state and regional public affairs. I couldn’t be more excited to rejoin Dilworth and be part of this next chapter of growth.”
