Hampton Dellinger is a partner at Boies, Schiller & Flexner.[1] Previously, he was a North Carolina lawyer in the Triangle office of Robinson, Bradshaw & Hinson and a candidate for the 2008 Democratic nomination for Lieutenant Governor of North Carolina. In his first run for elective office, he lost the Democratic primary on May 6, 2008 to Walter H. Dalton.[2]

Before running for lieutenant governor, Dellinger held state government posts under Mike Easley when the latter served as North Carolina Attorney General and later as governor.

Dellinger is the son of law professor and former Acting Solicitor General of the United States Walter Dellinger.

In 2009, Sen. Kay Hagan recommended Dellinger and two other lawyers to President Barack Obama for consideration as U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of North Carolina.[3] Obama eventually nominated attorney Thomas G. Walker instead.[4]
