Silpa Maruri is a partner in Quinn Emanuel’s New York office and Co-Chair of the firm’s Delaware Practice.  Silpa has extensive experience in a broad range of high-stakes matters, including public and private deal-related litigation, corporate governance actions, and commercial contract disputes. 

Silpa recently served as lead counsel in a class action on behalf of Dell stockholders relating to a 2018 stock-for-stock exchange, resulting in a historic settlement of $1 billion—the largest class action settlement in any state court.  Silpa’s recent representative matters also include several deal-related disputes regarding corporate acquisitions, a shareholder-dispute regarding corporate control of a family-owned enterprise, commercial contract disputes relating to investor exit rights, and matters involving financial fraud.

Silpa was recognized by Law360 in 2021 as a “Rising Star” and was twice named  “Litigator of the Week” by the American Lawyer in 2022, an honor shared by only one other attorney.  Silpa’s accolades also include recognition by Lawdragon 500 as a Leading Plaintiff Lawyer in the area of Financial Litigation and by the Legal 500 as a Recommended Lawyer for Dispute Resolution. Silpa received her B.A. with honors from the University of Chicago and her J.D., magna cum laude, from Cornell Law School.  Prior to joining the firm, Silpa worked as a law clerk in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
