DLA Piper announced today that Tami Howie will join the firm's Corporate practice as a partner in Washington, DC.

Howie advises technology, life science and medical device companies in emerging growth and venture capital, private equity and M&A matters. She joins DLA Piper from the Maryland Technology Council, the state's largest technology trade association supporting biotechnology and innovation in the state of Maryland, where she was CEO.

"Tami has tremendous experience as a former partner as well as CEO of a major technology trade association," said John Gilluly, co-chair of the firm's US Corporate practice. "This experience will enable her to deliver unique insights and counsel to clients as they pursue their strategic goals and objectives."

Howie also previously served as in-house counsel for, and later president of, a government contract company and worked in private practice, including at DLA Piper.

"Demand for the experience and knowledge that Tami brings, particularly in the areas of technology, life sciences and biotechnology, is high in the Washington, DC, and greater mid-Atlantic region," said Jeff Lehrer, managing partner of the firm's Washington, DC, office. "Her counsel will be highly beneficial to clients in those sectors, among others, and we are pleased to welcome her back to the firm."

Howie received her J.D. from the University of Maryland School of Law and her B.A. from Towson University.
