Virginia State Bar Recognizes Steele for 50-Year Milestone in Legal Profession
The summer 2020 edition of Senior Lawyer News, published by the Virginia State Bar, recognizes partner Myron Steele as one of its Fifty Year Award Recipients. This year’s recipients were admitted to the Virginia bar between July 1, 1969 and June 30, 1970.
The immediate past chair of the Senior Lawyers Conference noted that the Fifty Year Award Recipients have demonstrated “extraordinary perseverance in our challenging, often difficult, and often rewarding profession, and they are an inspiration to the rest of us.”
Steele is the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Delaware. Previously, he served as a Judge of the Superior Court and a Vice Chancellor of the Delaware Court of Chancery after 18 years in private litigation practice. He has presided over major corporate litigation and LLC and limited partner governance disputes, and he writes frequently on issues of corporate document interpretation and corporate governance.
A former adjunct professor at the University of Virginia School of Law, Steele earned a B.A. in Foreign Affairs from UVA and a J.D. and an LL.M from UVA School of Law.
