Delaware Governor Nominates New Chancellor for Court of Chancery

 Delaware Governor Jack Markell yesterday nominated Andre Bouchard for Chancellor of the Court of Chancery. The seat was vacated when Leo Strine, Jr., the former Chancellor, was recently elevated to Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court. The next step in the process is for the Delaware Senate to confirm the nomination. This selection of a widely-respected corporate litigator, who is nationally-recognized for his expertise in the areas of the law within Chancery’s jurisdiction, will ensure the continuation of the court’s tradition of excellence.
