Former Delaware Supreme Court Justice Randy Holland Becomes First U.S. Justice to Join English Chambers
On June 5, 2018, London-based 3 Hare Court, a global civil and commercial set of barristers' chambers providing a range of advocacy and advisory services, announced that WSGR Senior Of Counsel and retired Delaware Supreme Court Justice Randy J. Holland was elected as the chambers' "door tenant," becoming the first former U.S. justice to affiliate with a leading English set of chambers. He will continue his role as Senior Of Counsel at the firm.
An elected Honorary Master of the Bench of the Honorable Society of Lincoln’s Inn, Holland was—at the time of his initial judicial appointment in 1986—the youngest person to serve as a Delaware Supreme Court justice. In addition, in 2009, he became the longest-serving justice in Delaware history. He is a recognized expert on state constitutional, appellate litigation, and company law. Holland joined Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati’s corporate governance practice in May 2017. The firm’s practice is consistently cited as having one of the most accomplished teams in the country.
In a press release, 3 Hare Court Joint Head of Chambers Jeffrey Golden noted that he has "known Randy Holland for nearly two decades" and has "admired him, his work, and his tireless efforts to promote access to and public confidence in the administration of justice for even longer. We look forward to this new relationship, which is certain to foster a wider appreciation internationally of the English Bar, as well as special opportunities for collaboration between a jurist of his broad experience, and the skilled advocates and experts here in Chambers."
