Flaherty Sensabaugh Bonasso Names New Managing Member
We are pleased to announce that the firm has named Tyler Dinsmore as Managing Member. Tyler will be assuming the responsibilities of Mike Bonasso who has served as the firm’s managing member since its inception.
As part of a larger strategic planning initiative, Tyler was selected to serve as Assistant Managing Member in 2018, with the expectation that he would step into the Managing Member role this spring. Mike will serve as an advisor to the Management Committee as requested in addition to growing his active practice and mentoring the next generation of Flaherty attorneys.
“Tyler is well-suited to his new role. He is a common-sense leader who will effectively leverage the firm’s strengths for the years ahead,” said Bonasso. “I have total confidence in his leadership as we continue to serve our clients and adapt in this ever-changing market.”
Tyler was the firm’s first associate hired 27 years ago. A few years later, he took over cases for a single asbestos client; since then he has managed and grown that book of business significantly, having managed more than 45,000 suits against product manufacturers and contractors in asbestos litigation, including several Fortune 500 companies. In addition to serving as managing member, Tyler will continue to lead the firm’s complex tort and product liability group.
“I am honored to be selected by my peers to this position and look forward to continuing Mike’s legacy,” said Dinsmore. “We have an outstanding group of attorneys and professional staff to move Flaherty into its next chapter.”
