The Court was pleased to have many highly qualified
applicants for the position of Master. Although the choice was difficult, Abby
LeGrow stood out as having the intellectual capacity, work ethic, and ability
to make timely decisions that is required for this important position.... The
members of the Court are confident that Abby will distinguish herself as a
Master of the Court.

For any Delaware lawyer, it is a tribute to be appointed
as Master of the highly acclaimed Court of Chancery, particularly given the
level of talent and accomplishment required to be considered for that position.
The appointment of Abby LeGrow is well-deserved. She graduated first in her law
school class, and as a private practitioner, quickly developed a reputation for
excellence in her chosen fields, including business law cases litigated in that
Court. I am confident that the honor bestowed on Abby will be returned
multifold, to the benefit of the Court on which she will serve, the members of
the Bar, and the citizens of this State.

become the Court of Chancery's Court Administrator and Register in Chancery.
