Blank Rome’s Peter Tsoflias Presents 2018 “Peter I. Tsoflias Most Outstanding Member Award” at Widener University Delaware Law School
Blank Rome Associate Peter Tsoflias presented his fourth annual “Peter I. Tsoflias Most Outstanding Member Award” to Robert Monsour on Monday, April 23, at Widener University Delaware Law School. This award is given annually to a member of the Transactional Law Honor Society whose work and scholarship in, and dedication to, the society deserves special recognition above his or her peers.
The award was created in honor of Mr. Tsoflias, who founded Widener University Delaware Law School’s Transactional Law Honor Society (“TLHS”) while earning his J.D. The TLHS is a program that helps students attain practical legal skills in the area of transactional law, and trains its members through workshops and lectures on the intricacies of business law and practice.

Mr. Tsoflias once again served as TLHS’s alumni adviser throughout the academic school year. In January 2018, with the support of Blank Rome, Mr. Tsoflias hosted a training session in the Firm’s Philadelphia office to help prepare TLHS members for the annual LawMeets Mid-Atlantic Regional Competition, in which they won for “Best Draft Purchase Agreement” and placed first overall. Following their success at the Mid-Atlantic Regionals, in March, Mr. Tsoflias and Blank Rome were pleased to announce that the TLHS was one of 16 teams—out of the 96 that participated overall—that advanced to the 2018 National Transactional LawMeet Championships in New York City. Mr. Tsoflias was joined by Blank Rome Associate Michael S. Swoyer, a member of the TLHS’s executive board and instrumental in the team being awarded honor society status, to help coach the team.
Mr. Tsoflias is based in Blank Rome’s Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia offices and represents business entity clients in connection with day-to-day corporate and commercial affairs and major transactions, including mergers, acquisitions, divestitures, joint venture formations, and project financings. He also assists companies in dealing with state and federal regulatory compliance and has significant experience handling, and often advises boards of directors with respect to, Delaware business entity law issues. Mr. Tsoflias has published several articles on corporate, commercial, and constitutional law issues, including a guide on Delaware’s residential landlord-tenant law, which was published in the 2018 Widener Law Review (Vol. 24, Issue 1). He previously served as a volunteer attorney with Delaware Volunteer Legal Services, Inc., and as an internal managing editor of the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law (Volume 38).
