Gregory B. Williams, a partner with Fox Rothschild LLP, has been appointed by Governor Jack Markell to the Judicial Nominating Committee for the State of Delaware.
A Judicial Nominating Commission has been used by Delaware Governors for more than 30 years to assist Governors in nominating judges for appointment who have excellent legal ability and unquestioned integrity.
In his press release, Governor Markell stated, “…I am honored to appoint some of Delaware’s leading citizens to the Judicial Nominating Commission that will help me appoint to the bench men and women who are leaders in the bar and in their communities. They have an important job to do, and I look forward to working with them to ensure that Delaware continues to have a judiciary that knows no equal.”
Williams’ practice involves all aspects of commercial and corporate litigation in Delaware, Pennsylvania and New Jersey, including but not limited to, antitrust, contractual disputes, business torts, corporate governance and fiduciary matters, employment related litigation, eminent domain and other real estate related litigation, intellectual property and toxic torts.
In addition to his role as Office Managing Partner of the Wilmington office, Williams’ leadership roles within the firm include serving as a member of the firm's Executive Committee, Chair of the firm’s Diversity Committee, and a member of the firm’s Hiring Committee. When Williams became Office Managing Partner of Fox Rothschild’s Wilmington Office in April 2007, he became the first African-American to ever hold such a position in the more than 100-year history of Fox Rothschild and the first African-American to ever hold such position at any major firm in Wilmington with an office larger than 10 attorneys.
Active in the Delaware legal community, Williams serves as a member of the Attorney Advisory Committee for the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, and as Secretary and a member of the Executive Committee of the Delaware State Bar Association. Williams also is a past Chair of the Multicultural Judges and Lawyers Section of the Delaware State Bar Association and serves as a Member of the Hearing Committee of the Attorney Disciplinary Board of the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.
