William "Bill" Dean
William E. Dean has lived in Idaho for 42 years and has been a practicing attorney for the last 24 years.
Before becoming an attorney, Bill worked as a licensed CPA with Deloitte & Touche for seven years and at HP Inc-a Fortune 100 company for 20 years providing transactional and negotiation support. Having a CPA background gives him an in-depth understanding of the financial transaction processes involved in real estate, corporate governance, business growth and succession, and asset protection.

He prides himself on providing expert counsel to clients on a wide variety of corporate, business, and real estate matters, with an emphasis on transactional and contract work. He is also well versed in estate planning and can help guide individuals through the difficulty of preparing for those unforeseen tragedies in life.
Bill has guided clients through the legal processes of all types of business-related transactions and is an experienced litigator. He has a vast knowledge of corporate governance, counseling on the appropriate business entity, preparation, review, negotiation, and closing of complex contracts and documents, buying and selling assets, real estate or business interests, mergers acquisitions, shareholder agreements, operating agreements, buy-sell agreements, vendor service agreements, employment agreements, and general business planning.
During his 20-year career at HP Inc, Bill provided support to a diverse stakeholder group as well as strategic counsel to managers on issues of asset purchases and sales, service delivery, financing, cross-border deals, supply chain, channel relationships, contracts, risk mitigation, collections, equipment leasing, government regulations, and software licensing.
Bill is passionate and committed to the legal profession, striving to ensure that his clients receive prompt, efficient, caring, and proactive professional legal services.
In his spare time, Bill is an avid outdoorsman who enjoys exploring the beautiful Idaho backcountry while horseback riding with his wife, Dena. As an “angler and a wrangler,” he finds his relaxations in hunting, fishing, camping, and motorcycle riding the Idaho countrysides.
