Former Delaware Supreme Court Justice Randy J. Holland has joined Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, a Palo Alto, California-based legal firm with an expertise in technology, life sciences and other growth industries around the world.
Hollard retired from the Delaware Supreme Court in March 2017, after 30 years on the court. He is now serving at the firm's Wilmington office as senior of counsel.
The firm tapped Holland, in part, for his unique experience working within Delaware's corporate legal landscape.
“During his notable tenure on the Delaware Supreme Court, Justice Holland distinguished himself as an
eminent jurist, educator, and one of the nation’s most thoughtful experts on state constitutional law,” said
Doug Clark, managing partner at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, in a press release.
Former Gov. Michael N. Castle appointed Holland in 1986, making him the youngest person to serve on the court in the state's history. In another milestone, he became the longest-serving justice in 2009.
“Justice Holland is one of the most respected members of the Delaware legal and business community,
based on his impressive judicial career and his incomparable expertise in important areas of business
law,” said William Chandler III, former Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery, who leads the
Wilmington office at Wilson Sonsini Goodrich & Rosati, in a press release.
“Our clients will benefit from his extraordinary judicial insight and experience, and we are honored that Justice Holland has joined our firm,” he added.
