Dale Bergman Interviewed by Law360 on Move to Lewis Brisbois, Leading Securities & Corporate Finance Practice
Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. (May 18, 2023) – Fort Lauderdale/New York Partner and Vice Chair of Lewis Brisbois’ Securities & Corporate Finance Practice Dale Bergman recently spoke with Law360 for an article regarding his decision to join the firm and help lead one of its practices.
As the article, titled “Lewis Brisbois Hires New Vice Chair Of Securities Practice,” explains, Mr. Bergman joined Lewis Brisbois earlier this month from Gutiérrez Bergman Boulris PLLC, where he was a former named partner. With more than four decades of experience, he represents a diverse array of clients, handling domestic and international corporate, business, and securities transactions on their behalf. Moreover, as the article notes, Mr. Bergman is a graduate of Columbia University and Harvard Law School, is admitted to practice in both Florida and New York, and is fluent in Hebrew.
In describing his reasons for making the move to Lewis Brisbois, Mr. Bergman told Law360, "It got to the point where I needed a bigger platform. . . . I found this to be a unique opportunity, because even though it is a very large law firm, the corporate practice is exactly in my sweet spot, which is having practiced in Florida for mid-cap companies, non-institutional companies, and they're very business oriented. It makes it a perfect fit. I've just been going crazy busy since I got there two weeks ago."
In addition, Mr. Bergman discussed his affinity for transactional law, noting, "I like [my practice] because it's challenging. My personality is one of making deals, not breaking deals. I did some litigation as a young associate a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, but it just wasn't me. It's adversarial, but it's different because you're trying to reach a goal where everybody is satisfied. Is everybody going to get what they want in a well-negotiated deal? No, that's what negotiation means. But everybody's going to walk away saying 'Yeah, I got a good deal.'"
