DLA Piper announced today that leading corporate governance & securities litigator Ashley R. Altschuler will join the firm’s Litigation practice as a partner in Wilmington, Delaware, with an office also in New York. Altschuler joins DLA Piper from Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP, where he was a partner in the Securities Litigation practice group in New York.

Before joining Weil, Altschuler served as judicial clerk to a former Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, E. Norman Veasey, and as legislative correspondent to now-DLA Piper partner Mike Castle when he served as a member of the US House of Representatives. Altschuler is a member of the Board of Advisors of the University of Delaware Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance.


Altschuler has lectured on corporate governance and securities topics at The Millstein Center for Corporate Governance and Performance and at the Yale School of Management, and is the author of various publications on corporate law matters. He is the recipient of numerous awards for his pro bono legal services, including the Lawyers Alliance for New York’s Award for Pro Bono Leadership and the Cornerstone Award.

“Ashley brings a level of sophisticated litigation skills and related corporate governance and securities experience that are essential to servicing the needs of our clients, in Delaware and beyond,” said Robert Mathias, joint global leader and US chair of DLA Piper’s Litigation practice.

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.”
