"Being a Delaware litigator means I am fortunate to collaborate with first-rate businesspeople and attorneys from all over the globe, and assist them with an insider view of the Delaware courts and complex Delaware legal matters." - Albert Carroll

Albert also represents clients in business litigation in Delaware federal court.
