Linowes and Blocher LLP Marks its 60th Anniversary

February 18, 2016

Following the lead of its late founders, Bob Linowes and Joe Blocher, Linowes and Blocher LLP continues the firm’s twin traditions of client service and community involvement as it celebrates its 60th year in business. While helping guide change over six decades, the Bethesda-based firm maintains a prominent profile in real estate, business, political and community circles. 

As a law firm focusing on real estate and business matters, Linowes and Blocher LLP is a multi-jurisdictional and multi-practice firm. It is best known for handling land use cases and real estate transactions but it also boasts active practices in the litigation, bankruptcy, tax, corporate, and environmental spheres. Its attorneys serve clients from its home base in Bethesda as well as from offices in Annapolis and Frederick, but it handles matters throughout the Washington, D.C./Baltimore region and beyond.  The firm is well regarded for its innovative solutions and its “close the deal” approach.

“We take great satisfaction in the fact that, after 60 years, we have had such a meaningful and positive impact in the jurisdictions in which we practice,” said Andrew Goldstein, the firm’s managing partner. “Wherever you travel in the region, you will see real estate projects that we had a direct hand in shaping – projects that have made the Washington area such a desirable place to live and work. We look forward to continuing to help our clients navigate the legal challenges they face as they pursue development and other business opportunities both within and outside the DC area.” 

Linowes and Blocher LLP plays a significant role in the community in other ways. The firm invests heavily in the jurisdictions in which it works and its lawyers serve as leaders in organizations that support educational, housing, environmental, art and culture, and other civic and charitable causes.  The firm is a strong and frequent sponsor of community events and programs, a tradition that started with its founders 60 years ago.  Its attorneys contribute myriad hours of pro bono legal services annually.

According to C. Robert Dalrymple, a senior partner in the firm, “Bob Linowes was a hard charger in law and business but always emphasized that we had an obligation to give back to the larger community in which we function. We are proud to carry on the dual legacy that Bob Linowes and Joe Blocher left us, a legacy of service and commitment to our clients and of contribution to our community.”
