222 Delaware Avenue, Suite 800
Wilmington, Delaware is an important strategic location for doing business in the United States. With its solid pro-business environment, proximity to highly respected courts, including the Court of the Chancery, and one of the most advanced and flexible corporate statutes in the nation, the city is often referred to as "the corporate capital" of the U.S. It is estimated that more than half a million business entities have made their legal home in Delaware, including more than 50 percent of all U.S. publicly traded companies and 60 percent of the Fortune 500.
The Wilmington office of Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati is led by William B. Chandler III, former Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, who is widely regarded as one of the world's most influential and well-respected jurists on corporate law and governance matters. Chandler joined Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati in 2011. In February 2014, Chandler was appointed by Delaware Governor Jack Markell to chair the Judicial Nominating Commission, a task force responsible for screening and recommending candidates to fill judicial vacancies on the Delaware bench.
In May 2017, former Delaware Supreme Court Justice Randy J. Holland joined the firm as Senior of Counsel in the Wilmington, Delaware office. Holland retired from the Delaware Supreme Court in March 2017 after serving more than 30 years. During that time, he wrote more than 700 reported opinions, including many of Delaware’s seminal corporate law decisions. He is recognized nationally and internationally as an eminent jurist and educator and brings unique expertise to the firm’s litigation and appellate practices.
The Wilmington team works closely with the firm's attorneys nationwide to advise clients on a broad range of corporate law, governance, and litigation matters, with particular expertise in class action defense, securities litigation, special committees, and internal investigations.
Through the seamless integration of all Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati offices, we leverage the institutional experience and resources of the entire firm to provide high-quality services to clients.
