Department profile submitted by Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP
Potter Anderson is best known for our extraordinarily deep bench of litigators with extensive experience in the Delaware Court of Chancery, the most influential trial court in the U.S. on matters of corporate law. We have more than 30 corporate litigators.
In addition to being trusted advisers to our clients, our partners play active roles in shaping Delaware corporate law. The Corporation Law Section of the Delaware State Bar Association, the source of virtually all annual revisions to the Delaware General Corporation Law, includes three Potter Anderson partners on its council. Our lawyers have also written some of the best-known Delaware legal resources, including Corporate and Commercial Practice in the Delaware Court of Chancery, a leading authority by Chambers-ranked partners Don Wolfe and Mike Pittenger on Delaware corporate practice that has been cited by the Delaware courts in approximately 500 published opinions.
Because of our reputation as a Delaware powerhouse, especially as a destination firm for corporate litigation, we attract well-known members of the judiciary who could choose to go anywhere. We currently count three former Delaware judges among our ranks, including Myron Steele, former chief justice of the Supreme Court of Delaware, former Delaware Superior Court judge and former vice chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery.
