Andre G. Bouchard was tagged by Delaware Governor Jack Markell to run the Court of Chancery, which decides ownership fights among companies organized under Delaware law. He would be the 21st chancellor of the Court of Chancery. Delaware has captivated a majority of the Fortune 500 companies and 1 million other legal business entities.

Gov. Markell flattered Bouchard as a smart, quick lawyer able to “think quickly on his feet in the courtroom” “I am proud to nominate him to lead the world’s most influential court for corporate law and i am confident that he will build on Delaware’s reputation for judicial excellence.”

“I am grateful and deeply honored to be nominated by Governor Markell for the position of Chancellor. Having practiced in the Court of Chancery for the past 28 years, I have seen firsthand the quality of its judges and staff, and what makes this court the preeminent forum in the United States for resolving corporate and commercial disputes. It is a privilege to be nominated to serve as Chancellor,and I look forward to the opportunity to serve the citizens of Delaware in this capacity if I am fortunate enough to be confirmed by the Senate.”

Bouchard graduated from Harvard Law School in 1986, received his Bachelor’s Degree summa cum laude from Boston College in 1983, where he was a Truman Scholar. and Wilmington’s all-boys Salesianum School, he joined the Delaware bar in 1986 and worked for 10 years at the local outpost of New York’s Skadden Arps Slate Meagher & Flom before bolting to start his own firm, Bouchard, Margules & Friedlander, specializing in commercial and corporate litigation.
