McCarter & English has named Daniel Silver the managing partner of the firm’s Wilmington, DE office. In this role, Dan will oversee operations and the business of running the office, while continuing his work with clients.
Dan succeeds David White, who has retired from McCarter, and was recently appointed to serve as the Chief Disciplinary Counsel for the Supreme Court of the State of Delaware.
McCarter’s Wilmington office serves clients across a range of industries, from multinational pharmaceutical and Fortune 500 companies, to financial institutions, hospitals and health systems. Its lawyers represent clients in a diverse set of areas, including business and commercial litigation, bankruptcy, product liability, corporate, intellectual property, and government affairs.
Firmwide Managing Partner Joseph Boccassini said, “The Wilmington office and the firm at large are very fortunate to welcome Dan into this role. As a leader within the firm, he has demonstrated the same qualities that have made him a trusted advisor to his clients: excellent judgment, foresight, and an unwavering commitment to the success of our clients and colleagues.”
Dan is a trial attorney whose practice spans across intellectual property litigation and other high-stakes litigation disputes. He spends a substantial portion of his time representing clients in the pharmaceutical industry, particularly innovator clients as plaintiffs in Hatch-Waxman or BPCIA litigation. In addition to his lead counsel work, he often draws on his understanding of Delaware law to serve as Delaware counsel to out-of-state law firms.
“I am honored and excited to step into this role,” Dan said. “I look forward to working with my colleagues to continue to provide outstanding service to our clients and our community in Delaware.”
