Vice Chancellor Donald F. Parsons Jr. is set to step down from Delaware’s venerable Chancery Court when his term expires in October, the court said Monday, ending a 12-year tenure on the bench, where he was known for handling some of the venue’s most complicated and technical cases.

“He has a tremendous respect for the advocates in front of him,” said Ballard Spahr partner David J. Margules. “Some judges take a very active role in shaping the case, he gives the parties a lot more leeway to really work through the issues.”
