We hear what businesses want from their outside counsel: experienced, responsive representation from attorneys who know how to solve problems efficiently. That is what we deliver at Tydings, a Maryland law firm that has been advocating on behalf of large corporations, privately held businesses, and individuals for more than eighty years.
Our firm is home to trusted business counselors and skilled advocates. Our size means that we are agile enough to respond quickly to clients’ changing needs, yet we possess the depth of resources to handle matters of any complexity and size.
Experience and efficiency are hallmarks of our representation; we emphasize quality of work over quantity of attorneys. As anyone who has been tested by a bet-the-company lawsuit or a transformative transaction knows, experience is invaluable. It provides the steady hand that so often is necessary at critical moments. That is why a senior attorney takes the lead on every lawsuit or transaction that comes our way. The lead lawyer assumes full responsibility for the matter, relying on associates and paralegals when appropriate, and taking into account the client’s business goals and budget.
Our approach to staffing means that every client receives the personal attention of an experienced lawyer who will ensure that each member of the team is responsive. Phone calls and e-mails are answered promptly; office visits are encouraged; personal relationships develop as a matter of course. In no small part because we are so accessible, many of our clients have been relying on us for decades.
Our clients also benefit from our deep Maryland roots. Since U.S. Senator Millard E. Tydings formed the firm with Morris Rosenberg in 1930, our professionals have been playing lead roles in some of the most consequential legal and business developments in the state’s history. From the construction of stadiums to precedent-setting appellate decisions, to monumental defense verdicts, Tydings' lawyers have been paving the way. Thanks to our involvement in landmark transactions and lawsuits, as well as to our dedication to the betterment of Maryland, our attorneys enjoy access to prominent business leaders and politicians throughout the state.
Beyond our borders, our clients have access to the acumen of leading attorneys around the globe. As a member of MERITAS, Law Firms Worldwide, a consortium of nearly 200 law firms in major cities worldwide, Tydings provides clients with exceptional legal resources in other jurisdictions. A firm must meet rigorous standards to be invited to become a Meritas member, and continuing peer review and monitoring assure quality performance.
Tydings' attorneys have been recognized by numerous publications—Chambers USA, Best Lawyers in America, Super Lawyers, and Benchmark Litigation, among others—as outstanding in their respective practice areas. No matter a company’s size, no matter its needs, we listen closely to our clients and strive to provide the excellent service they deserve.
