Slights, who stepped down from the Court of Chancery at the beginning of June after six years on the bench, will join Wilson Sonsini’s corporate governance practice.

“Serving on the Delaware Court of Chancery as vice chancellor was a tremendous honor, and now I’m looking forward to working with Wilson Sonsini’s talented team in Delaware and what I know to be an impressive national governance practice,” Slights said. “With the firm’s innovative clients and the many practitioners behind the firm’s success, I am confident this platform will allow me to direct my energy toward the type of work that clients value and need—and do so as part of a dynamic team that shares my passion.”
