ABA Appoints Eric Klinger-Wilensky to Business Law Section Envoy Program

Wilmington, DE (July 15, 2015) – Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP partner Eric S. Klinger-Wilensky has been selected as a member of the American Bar Association (ABA) Business Law Section Envoy Program.

Each year, the Business Law Section appoints up to the five outstanding young lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) attorneys to participate in a two-year term as Business Law Section Envoys. The Envoy Program springboards participants into leadership roles within the section by providing mentors, travel subsidies, and involvement opportunities in order to increase diversity in the Business Law Section and identify new leaders for future participation on ABA committees.

“I am honored to be part of this program designed to increase LGBT involvement,” Eric said. “This appointment is a unique opportunity to combine two of the three great passions in my life—being a business attorney and advancing the cause of the LGBT community (with the third, though most important, being my family).”

Eric joins the 2015-2017 Envoy class, further expanding his ABA roles which already include co-editor of Deal Points (the M&A Committee newsletter) and vice-chair of the Private Equity and Venture Capital Committee.

At Morris Nichols, Eric serves as Practice Group Coordinator of the firm’s Delaware Corporate Counseling Group. His work involves counseling corporations and special committees in the context of potential transactions, aiding corporations and investors in structuring capital investments, advising generally on corporate governance issues. He also provides corporate-related advice in the context of M&A litigation, and has been involved in a number of key M&A and other corporate opinions issued by the Delaware courts over the past several years.
