Transactional Law Honor Society, Founded by Blank Rome’s Peter Tsoflias, to Compete at National Transactional LawMeet
Blank Rome LLP is pleased to announce that the Delaware Law School Transactional Law Honor Society (“TLHS”) will advance to the 2018 National Transactional LawMeet Championships, the premier interscholastic competition for law students interested in transactional practice, after recently winning “Best Draft Purchase Agreement” and first place overall in the Mid-Atlantic competition.
Blank Rome Associate Peter I. Tsoflias, who founded TLHS in 2011, and Associate Michael S. Swoyer, who was a member of TLHS’ executive board and instrumental in the team being awarded honor society status, helped coach the team in this year’s competition. In addition, the Firm annually hosts a training session for the team in the Philadelphia office where Blank Rome attorneys discuss the transactional practice, generally, and provide members with guidance and training in the corporate transactional field.
From the 96 teams participating at the Regional LawMeets, only 16 will advance to the national championships being held on April 6, 2018, at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP in New York City. This year’s case involves the acquisition of all the outstanding capital stock of Volt Process Design Company (Volt) by an affiliate of Beijing Global Investors Limited (“BGI”), where the teams will be asked to draft and negotiate the acquisition agreement for this $2.25 billion transaction.
