Brian Mammarella served on the Managing Board of the Virginia Law Review and clerked for Vice Chancellor John W. Noble and Vice Chancellor Joseph R. Slights III in the Delaware Court of Chancery.
Brian focuses on counseling corporations, directors, officers, board committees, and stockholders on complex corporate governance and transactional issues implicating the General Corporation Law of the State of Delaware and related common law of fiduciary duties.
During law school, Brian served as an intern for Chief Justice Myron T. Steele of the Delaware Supreme Court and as a research assistant for Professor Michal Barzuza. He earned the Robert K. Bellamy Scholarship as his class’s outstanding graduate in the field of employment law, the Norton Rose Fulbright Best Memorandum Award for excellence in legal writing, and a competitive Dillard Fellowship to serve as an assistant legal writing instructor.
Prior to joining Richards Layton, Brian was a corporate and securities litigation associate in the New York offices of Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP. As a former litigator and law clerk in the Delaware Court of Chancery, Brian brings a uniquely fulsome perspective to the realm of stockholder litigation, as he has direct experience handling all phases of a case’s life cycle: fiduciary and statutory risk mitigation at the transactional stage, motions practice and discovery, trial-level adjudicative process, and appeals to the Delaware Supreme Court.
