March 16 — Recently retired Delaware Supreme Court Justice Henry duPont Ridgely joined DLA Piper March 16.
The longtime jurist, who retired Jan. 31, will be a member of the firm’s corporate and litigation practices, based in the Wilmington, Del. office, according to a firm press release.
His practice will focus on advising corporations, boards, special committees and individual directors and officers on transaction structure, fiduciary duties, and managing and defending litigation. He will also serve as a mediator and arbitrator.
“It was an honor to serve on one of the world’s preeminent judiciaries and, as I move to the next phase of my career, I am equally honored to be joining one of the world’s most respected business law firms,” Justice Ridgely said in the press release. “For many years, I have known and respected several of DLA Piper’s Delaware lawyers, and I am looking forward to now being one of their colleagues.”
Justice Ridgelys's retirement marked the fourth departure from the supreme court since November 2013.
Delaware Gov. Jack Markell (D) Feb. 23 nominated corporate attorney Collins J. “C.J.” Seitz Jr. to fill Ridgely's seat.
Justice Ridgely served on the state superior court from 1984 until he was appointed to the supreme court in 2004.
