Stephen Lamb, who left the bench of the Delaware Court of Chancery this week, will join Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison as a partner, the firm said Wednesday. Lamb, who served as the court’s vice chancellor, oversaw numerous corporate legal skirmishes during his 12-year term. He will split his time between New York and Wilmington, Del., where Paul Weiss plans to open an office this fall.

“We are fortunate that he will spend the next phase of his career with Paul Weiss, where he will be an invaluable resource for our clients and within our firm,” Chairman Brad Karp said in a statement.
