The Attorney Advocate Award of 2017 goes to Don Walsh., Attorney at Law, in Baltimore nominated by Reema Consulting Services, Inc.
For over 25 years, Don has provided consistent value to his clients at every stage of their business lifecycle, from inception to successful roll-up and sale. Applying sound legal principals and business acumen, he actively listens to his client’s woes and works closely with them to understand their challenges and create measurable, efficient solutions.
Over the years, much of his work has focused on mergers and acquisitions, employment law and government contracting issues including drafting proposals, contract administration, claims and handling protests. It is his goal to empower his clients with the knowledge to defend the business to which they have dedicated their life.
He is known within the community as a true advocate of small business, having worked with hundreds of small firms over the course of his career. He is a tireless advocate, advising his clients on small business initiatives through the federal and state procurement systems and contracting preference programs. He was recently called upon by Maryland’s Lieutenant Governor to provide insights to the state’s Commission to Modernize State Procurement, which sought to identify means and methods of expanding small and minority business opportunities.
Don is active in his community; volunteering with local school, scout and soccer programs. He serves as a guest expert for the SBA’s Emerging Leaders program and participates with Harford County’s Northeastern Maryland Technology Council and the Baltimore County Chamber.
