Andrew H. Sauder / Attorney
Office: Wilmington, DE
Litigating in Delaware courts requires a deep understanding of the court system, Judges and Chancellor’s, and Delaware’s unique body of case law. We combine that with our internal processes designed to save clients time and money and obtain better results.
Early in his career, Andrew Sauder clerked for the Honorable Myron T. Steele, Chief Justice of the Delaware Supreme Court. Andrew pulls from those formative experiences and from more than a decade of navigating complex cases through the Delaware Court of Chancery to offer clients measured counsel in a variety of corporate, fiduciary, and commercial litigation matters. This includes matters involving claims for breaches of fiduciary duty, appraisals, stockholder inspection demands, advancements and indemnifications, corporate control issues, LLC and partnership agreement interpretations, breaches of contract, and trust litigation.
In addition to his Court of Chancery work, Andrew guides clients through appeals in the Delaware Supreme Court, through commercial disputes and insurance coverage actions in the Delaware Superior Court, and through securities and commercial disputes in the US District Court for the District of Delaware.
Prior to joining Dailey LLP, Andrew worked with the corporate litigation group at Potter Anderson & Corroon LLP.
Andrew and his wife, Christine, have four children. Andrew participates in local community improvement projects, and recently joined the board of a local chapter of United Way. He also enjoys coaching youth flag football and watching hockey.
