Diane V. D’Aiutolo, managing partner at Tydings & Rosenberg LLP, has been named one of its women of influence in 2022 by I95 Business Magazine. She has served as President of Network 2000 (now Executive Alliance), a statewide organization dedicated to the advancement of accomplished women; President of the Maryland Defense Counsel, Inc.; State Representative to the national organization DRI (“Defense Research Institute, Inc”); and a Member of the Board of Directors of Commercial Law Affiliates (now Meritas), an international alliance of leading independent law firms. Currently she serves on the Trial Courts Judicial Nominating Commission for District 14 (Baltimore City). She is a member of the International Association of Defense Counsel, The Daily Record has named her one of Maryland’s Top 100 Women twice, she has been recognized by Maryland Super Lawyers, and Martindale-Hubbell has given her its highest rating.
D’Aiutolo, a University of Maryland Law School graduate, joined Tydings immediately following a judicial clerkship with Judge Elsbeth L. Bothe of the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. She selected Tydings “because of its reputation as an excellent firm,” she says, and because she was drawn to its size, which was “big enough to handle blue chip clients” without sacrificing cost-effective representation.
D’Aiutolo is committed to the firm’s mission of providing broad-based and superior representation in all aspects of litigation, business advice, and transactional services to its clients throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. One of her goals is to continue to attract smart and dedicated attorneys to the firm, believing that great lawyers not only expand the client base, but provide the first-rate service the firm’s clients expect. As part of that initiative, she recognizes that diversity at the firm is an imperative; hiring qualified diverse attorneys across all levels of the firm will be a priority.
