Friedlander & Gorris, P.A. is a litigation boutique focusing on corporate law litigation, alternative entity disputes, commercial litigation, and federal securities law cases. Our corporate law practice includes the prosecution and defense of stockholder class and derivative actions, corporate control disputes, litigation over acquisition agreements, and statutory actions regarding corporate books and records, advancement, indemnification and appraisal. The members of the firm take a hands-on approach that allows us to litigate cases efficiently. Unlike most firms that practice before the Delaware Court of Chancery, we regularly represent both plaintiffs and defendants in stockholder class and derivative actions. We believe that combination of experience enhances our effectiveness.
The firm originated in 1996 as Lamb & Bouchard, P.A. and was renamed Bouchard & Friedlander, P.A. in 1997, after Stephen P. Lamb became Vice Chancellor of the Court of Chancery. The firm was known as Bouchard Margules & Friedlander, P.A. from January 2000 until May 2014, when Andre G. Bouchard became Chancellor of the Court of Chancery. From its inception, the firm has litigated against the largest national and Delaware law firms, and we often work as co-counsel with the most prestigious national law firms. Our clients are typically referred to us by counsel knowledgeable about the Delaware legal market and the Delaware Court of Chancery. We bring to every case a high level of partner involvement, devotion to the highest standards of written and oral advocacy, and a willingness to litigate cases through trial. Our reputation is our most valued asset.
On January 29, 2015, the firm won the coveted 2015 “Delaware Firm of the Year” award by Benchmark Litigation. Finalists were chosen based upon research conducted in 2014. Benchmark Litigation also recognized the firm on a national level by designating In re Rural/Metro Stockholders Litigation, prosecuted to judgment by the firm, as one of seven “Impact Cases of the Year.”
The firm’s recent successes are the subject of a December 1, 2014 article in The Am Law Litigation Daily entitled “Delaware Firm Extends Hot Streak with Wal-Mart Ruling.”
The firm is described in the 2014 edition of Chambers USA as follows:
U.S. News – Best Lawyers ranks Friedlander & Gorris, P.A. as one of only nine law firms in Delaware that are “Tier 1” for both corporate law and commercial litigation.
- “Recognized excellence in plaintiff representation before the Delaware Court of Chancery. Strong experience in a range of matters including shareholder class actions and derivative suits, M&A litigation and corporate control disputes.”
