Partner Greg Varallo and former BLB&G partner Mark Lebovitch shared their commentary on the attractiveness of Delaware for firms seeking to ramp up their corporate litigation practice, despite the uncertainty of the pandemic. In 2019, BLB&G opened its newest office in Wilmington, which Greg co-leads alongside Mark, focusing on protecting investor rights and trying cases in Delaware and around the U.S.
"Delaware continues to be the forum of choice for business and investor rights litigation," Greg tells Law360 Pulse. "Delaware is as attractive, if not more so [attractive] than ever."
Delaware serves as an attractive destination as it is ranked among the top five district courts for patent filings in the nation for the past decade. Its bankruptcy court is traditionally considered to be one of the nation's premiere insolvency venues. Mark, who co-leads the firm's corporate governance practice, also commented on the value of BLB&G's new office location and the success of the firm.
As Mark shares in the article, "A majority of the issues we prosecute for our clients is in Delaware, and in particular, before the Court of Chancery. Opening a Wilmington office is the logical next step, and now is the right time to deepen our commitment."
