On rejoining the firm, Altschuler said”I am thrilled to be joining DLA Piper in Wilmington, where I clerked and my family relocated two years ago … The firm has a world-class reputation in all of the fundamental practice areas, including a top-tier corporate governance and securities group.”

Altschuler has more than 15 years of experience in litigating corporate, securities and complex business matters at trial and appellate levels in both state and federal jurisdictions across the US. His practice includes defense of shareholder derivative actions, mergers and acquisitions litigation, federal and state securities class actions, commercial litigation, arbitrations, and bankruptcy-related litigation, as well as counseling boards of directors with respect to corporate governance, business judgment, executive compensation and regulatory issues.

Altschuler earned his J.D. from Georgetown University Law Center, where he won a national moot court competition and served as the symposium co-chair of the Law & Policy in International Business Journal.  He is a graduate of Trinity College, Hartford, CT (with honors), where he serves as a member of the Board of Fellows.
