Albert Carroll focuses his practice on litigation involving corporations and alternative entities formed under Delaware law.  As a litigator, he represents and guides clients through fiduciary duty claims, contract disputes, M&A challenges, and summary proceedings under Delaware’s business statutes in the Delaware Court of Chancery and the Delaware Supreme Court. 

Another component of Albert’s practice includes advising directors or committees of directors serving on the boards of Delaware corporations.  As an advisor, he counsels directors on governance, fiduciary, and investigatory matters under Delaware law. 

Albert also has experience providing formal opinions in non-litigated matters and assisting in expert engagements in litigated matters regarding Delaware law. These engagements have included the ethical obligations of Delaware attorneys, the fiduciary duties of directors and officers under Delaware law, and the interpretation and application of the Delaware business statutes.
