Delaware Governor Announces Two Court of Chancery Nominations to Fill Retiring Chancellor Bouchard’s Seat

On April 9, 2021, Delaware Governor John Carney announced a number of judicial nominations, including two nominations to the Court of Chancery:

  • Vice Chancellor Kathaleen McCormick has been nominated to become the next Chancellor of the Court of Chancery, replacing Andre Bouchard who previously announced his retirement, effective April 30, 2021. She will be the first woman to serve in that role.
  • Lori W. Will, a partner at Wilson Sonsini in Delaware, has been nominated to fill McCormick’s seat as a Vice Chancellor.

We wish Chancellor Bouchard well in his retirement and thank him for his service on the Court, and look forward to the tenures of Chancellor McCormick and Vice Chancellor Will.
