Welcome to Tydings

In Memoriam


Thomas M. Wilson, III

February 22, 1936 - April 23, 2020

All of us at Tydings mourn the passing of our partner, colleague, and friend, Thomas M. Wilson, III.  It was our great privilege to have known him.  Tom was a member of the Tydings family for nearly 40 years before retiring in 2017.  He was an accomplished lawyer and nationally-recognized expert in antitrust and business competition law.  Prior to joining Tydings, Tom served for five years as an Assistant Attorney General for the State of Maryland, where he established, and served as the first Chief of, the State’s Antitrust Division.  In private practice, he represented businesses - local, national, and international - in complex antitrust and trade regulation matters before courts throughout the country, and served on a variety of antitrust-related boards and organizations. 

Tom was a mentor and teacher to many attorneys, both inside and outside of the firm, all of whom held him in the highest regard. 

A true gentleman, Tom’s keen intellect, quick wit, and passion for the law will be missed.
