Dorsey & Whitney expanded its presence in Boise, ID, with the addition of Steve Hardesty as a partner in the firm’s corporate and M&A practice.
Hardesty has more than 35 years of experience across a spectrum of corporate transactional work, including private equity, corporate finance and mergers and acquisitions. He will be joining Nick Taylor, office head for Dorsey & Whitney in Boise, ID, and Richard Hall, leading mining partner in Boise, ID, who established the Dorsey & Whitney Boise office earlier this year. Hardesty joined Dorsey & Whitney from Perkins Coie’s Boise, ID, office.
“Continuing to add leading legal talent to Dorsey’s new Boise office is a top priority,” Bill Stoeri, managing partner of Dorsey & Whitney, said. “We are pleased to add Steve Hardesty to our team in Boise and to continue our growth in the Mountain West region.”
Hardesty represents private equity and venture capital funds and their portfolio companies in a range of merger, acquisition, financing, growth transaction and general corporate matters. He also represents emerging growth companies and specialty finance lenders on a national basis, including corporate aircraft finance and commercial real estate finance companies. Hardesty has earned several accolades from Chambers, Best Lawyers and other organizations, including being named “Mergers and Acquisitions Law Lawyer of the Year” in Boise by Best Lawyers in 2021 and 2023.
“I am thrilled to join Dorsey & Whitney,” Hardesty said. “No other firm in Boise can offer the same bench, depth of knowledge and footprint as Dorsey. I look forward to joining Nick and Richard, serving our clients from the Dorsey platform and further supporting Dorsey’s extraordinary client base.”
