Andrew S. Dupre focuses his practice on Delaware law corporate and commercial disputes in the Delaware Court of Chancery, and in arbitration. Andrew regularly represents shareholders, corporations and their officers and directors in shareholder class and derivative actions, merger and acquisition disputes, and litigation involving corporate governance and fiduciary duty claims. He is experienced litigating for limited partnerships, limited liability companies and other alternative business entities. Dual qualified as a solicitor of England & Wales and a member of the bar of Delaware, Andrew frequently represents Delaware affiliates of UK and Commonwealth entities and their directors in investment disputes. Outside of the courtroom, Andrew advises board Special Committees on litigation risk and compliance in M&A transactions, and Special Litigation Committees on investigations of shareholder claims.
In addition to his Delaware and English law corporate work, Andrew focuses a significant amount of his practice on commercial disputes, often involving high-value supply agreements. Much of this work is rooted in Andrew’s earlier career as a management consultant in the chemicals and pharmachem sectors, where he principally worked on acquisitions, divestments, and strategic planning for the DuPont company and its pharmaceutical joint ventures.
Andrew began his legal career as a law clerk in the Delaware Court of Chancery, and has practiced law in Madrid and Singapore. He lives in Media, Pennsylvania and Northeast, Maryland, where he boats the Chesapeake Bay, follows Atlético Madrid, and writes on law and economics.
