Andre Bouchard Profiled in The Deal
December 9, 2021
Litigation partner Andre Bouchard was featured in The Deal in a wide-ranging, two-part interview. In part one of the interview, “Bouchard Looks Back at Trulia,” Andy discusses his time as Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery; his 2016 decision in In re: Trulia, Inc. Stockholder Litigation, which imposed greater scrutiny on pervasive disclosure-only settlements in M&A shareholder litigation; and the decision’s aftermath.
“All too often, the disclosures were of no value or at best marginal value,” Andy says. “So you have this horrible non-adversarial process that is imposing a tax on every transaction. What do you do about that? In that context, when Trulia was decided I conferred with all my colleagues and said, ‘Look, maybe it's time we do something more systemic about this.’”
In part two of the interview, “Bouchard Looks Back at Chancery, Ahead at Paul Weiss,” Andy discusses the expansion of the Court of Chancery under his watch, changes in the litigation the court is seeing now and his decision to join Paul, Weiss.
“The culture of Paul Weiss is very special. I got to know many people here through an extensive interview process. I think I met something like 70 different partners. I also had seen many of their litigators who appeared in front of me, and I was uniformly impressed with the quality of their work and how they approached matters in the Court of Chancery,” says Andy.
