Room 190, Stanford Law School
Hon. Myron T. Steele is the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Delaware. Previously, he served as Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery. He has presided over major corporate litigation, LLC and limited partner governance disputes and writes frequently on issues of corporate document interpretation and corporate governance. Steele has published over 300 opinions resolving disputes among members of limited liability companies, and limited partnerships, and between shareholders and management of both publicly traded and close corporations.
His thesis for the LL.M. degree, Judicial Scrutiny of Fiduciary Duties in Delaware Limited Partnerships and Limited Liability Companies, focused on the application of common law fiduciary duties within the contractual framework of alternative business organizations. It was published in the Delaware Journal of Corporate Law (32 Del. J. Corp. L. 1 (2007)). The November 2005 issue of The Business Lawyer included an article he co-authored with Sean J. Griffith entitled On Corporate Law Federalism: Threatening the Thaumatrope (61 Bus. Law. 1 (2005)). He co-authored an article with J.W. Verret, Delaware’s Guidance: Ensuring Equity for the Modern Witenagemot, published in the fall 2007 issue of the Virginia Law & Business Review
(2 Va. L. & Bus. Rev. 188 (2007)). That article formed the basis for a keynote speech to the Business Section at the 2007 ABA Annual Meeting.
In September 2007, Directorship Magazine ranked Steele as one of the 100 most influential people in corporate governance in the United States. In December 2007, Ethisphere Magazine ranked Chief Justice Steele second in its list of the 100 most influential people in business ethics for 2007. Lawdragon Magazine has consistently placed Steele among its annual Lawdragon 500 “Leading Lawyers in America” and “Top Judges in America.”
