The Delaware office of Eckert Seamans plays a key role in the firm’s corporate and commercial litigation practices, as well as the bankruptcy practice. The Delaware office is fully integrated with the firm, both technologically and in practice areas so that the full resources of the firm are available to support our Delaware practice.
Though much of the high-stakes litigation handled by the Delaware office is in the Delaware Court of Chancery, the nation's preeminent forum for resolving corporate and commercial disputes, our litigators are experienced in handling cases in Delaware’s other highly-respected state and federal courts, and the lawyers based in the Delaware office often handle high-stakes business litigation in nearby Pennsylvania and in other states where the firm has offices.
Our attorneys handle the entire gamut of business related legal matters including those involving: corporate governance; control disputes; shareholder rights; books and records demands; fiduciary duties of directors, officers and managers of corporations and alternative entities; class actions; and complex contractual and commercial disputes.
In addition to handling complex commercial litigation in courts around the country for national and international clients, our Delaware office provides counseling on corporate governance matters.
It is more than coincidence that over 1 million business entities are domiciled in Delaware, and that most publicly traded companies in the United States and more than sixty percent of the companies listed on the Fortune 500 are incorporated under the laws of Delaware.
Attorneys in the Delaware office regularly appear in major bankruptcy cases and adversary proceedings in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey (as well as other federal courts throughout the United States) representing debtors, creditors, creditors committees, purchasers, contract parties, landlords, insurers and others. Recent representations in Delaware include representing parties in:
|American Home Mortgage
||Goody’s Family Clothing
|Linens ‘N Things
||Diamond Auto Glass
||Joan Fabrics Corporation
|The Lovesac Corporation
||Foamex International, Inc.
Eckert Seamans has wide-ranging experience assisting national and regional financial services companies in a variety of matters affecting the financial industry. Our attorneys frequently handle claims arising out of troubled loans including mortgage foreclosures and deficiency judgment collections.
