Delaware: The “Go-to” Forum for Global Business
September 7, 2014
Delaware has long been a global hub for company formation. More than one million companies are incorporated in Delaware, including 50% of all publicly-traded companies in the U.S. and 64% of the Fortune 500. Bun incorporating in Delaware is not just for American entities. Companies from around the world take advantage of all Delaware has to offer, which includes its world famous Court of Chancery, its cutting-edge business statutes, and its highly developed business and commercial case law. This session addressed what has made Delaware the forum of choice for so many businesses. Topics included a general overview of Delaware’s principal business statues and issues relating to formation; a review of its system of business courts and how they combine to address the needs of U.S. and international business; and selected recent developments of interest to U.S. and international practitioners.
