PALO ALTO, CA (August 17, 2011) - Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, the premier provider of legal services to technology, life sciences, and other growth enterprises worldwide, is pleased to announce that it has opened an office in Georgetown, Delaware.
"As a seat of the Delaware Court of Chancery, Georgetown is home to the nation's leading court for corporate law cases," said CEO Steve Bochner. "Although our firm has tried many cases before the Court of Chancery, having an official office in Georgetown gives us an increased presence in this important judicial hub. We are especially fortunate to have William Chandler, the former Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, based in the new office, as his extensive expertise and familiarity with the court and corporate governance issues will afford our clients unparalleled insight and representation."
Chancellor Chandler recently became a partner at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati after a distinguished 22-year-long career at the Court of Chancery. During his tenure at the court, he issued more than a thousand opinions and presided over some of the most contentious and high-profile corporate law disputes in the country, including those involving The Walt Disney Company, Yahoo, Microsoft, Hewlett-Packard, eBay, Citigroup, Dow Chemical, and, most recently, the Air Products/Airgas dispute. His opinions and analyses have made him one of the most influential and well-respected jurists in the world on issues of corporate law and governance.
The new office is located at Eight West Laurel Street, Georgetown, DE 19947-1424. The main phone number is 302-856-4235 and the fax number is 866-974-7329.
