Recently, Delaware’s Gov. Jack Markell nominated Andre G. Bouchard, an experienced trial lawyer who has represented both sides in corporate disputes, as chancellor of the Court of Chancery, the country’s leading court for business disputes. The seat opened up when Leo Strine Jr., the former chancellor, left to serve as chief justice of the state’s Supreme Court. The nomination is awaiting confirmation by the Delaware Senate.

“In nearly 30 years practicing law in Delaware, Andy Bouchard has demonstrated a remarkable ability to dissect complex legal issues and vigorously represent his clients,” the governor said. “He is well-recognized for his professionalism and ability to think quickly on his feet in the courtroom.”
