The Williford Firm LLC represents clients in corporate and other business litigation before the Delaware Court of Chancery and other Delaware courts and renders advice on corporate governance and other matters of Delaware business law.

Mr. Williford has litigated alongside and against the top lawyers and law firms in Delaware and nationally. He has participated in the litigation of issues involving substantial economic stakes, running into the billions of dollars, and matters of national legal interest. He has also litigated disputes involving small and family businesses; while these disputes may not have the same economic stakes, they are equally (if not more) important to those involved and the firm provides attentive, high-quality representation as to those matters as well.

The need for legal assistance does not always confine itself to regular business hours, and litigation before the Court of Chancery can be expedited. Accordingly, the firm prides itself on providing its clients with expedited and extended service and availability. The firm looks for ways to resolve its clients’ issues in the quickest and most efficient manner possible, but provides aggressive representation when appropriate.

The firm’s practice includes the representation of parties before the Delaware Court of Chancery with respect to matters of Delaware business law, as well as the Delaware Superior and Supreme Courts, the U.S. District Court of Delaware, and other jurisdictions. The firm represents plaintiffs as well as defendants and contingent or other alternative compensation arrangements can be discussed.

The firm also advises on matters of corporate governance regarding Delaware corporations and alternative entities such as Delaware limited partnerships and limited liability companies. The firm represents clients on a local or Delaware counsel, as well as on a lead or sole counsel, basis.

Before The Williford Firm LLC, Evan O. Williford practiced corporate litigation with Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A. and then Bouchard Margules & Friedlander, P.A., both firms recognized as leaders in the field of Delaware Court of Chancery litigation according to Chambers USA 2008. Mr. Williford attended Cornell Law School where he served as an Articles Editor on the Cornell Law Review. After law school he served as a law clerk for Chief Justice E. Norman Veasey of the Delaware Supreme Court.

As a smaller firm, The Williford Firm LLC does not have the conflict of interest problems that other, larger firms face. Mr. Williford established The Williford Firm LLC in order to provide clients and co-counsel with more flexible, more cost-effective, and more efficient representation of firm matters, matters that are typically of the utmost importance to them.
