We are pleased to provide Richards Layton clients and friends with this publication, which highlights recent corporate and alternative entity cases and statutory developments in Delaware. This publication continues our long tradition of providing insight into the development of Delaware law. Our attorneys have provided our clients with a concise quarterly update on Delaware law for more than two decades. In recent years, this update has been accompanied by a quarterly video, which allows clients and friends of the firm to gain insight into recent decisions and to ask questions of our attorneys. If you have not had the opportunity to receive our quarterly updates or participate in our video conferences, please let one of us know or send a note to

While time has altered how we relay information, Richards Layton retains a unique ability to offer insight and counsel on Delaware corporate law. Our corporate and alternative entities teams, the largest and most recognized in the state, play a crucial role in Delaware. For decades, we have contributed to the development of key statutes, litigated the most influential decisions, and provided counsel on the most sophisticated transactions. In 2015 our lawyers were deeply involved in drafting our state’s innovative new arbitration legislation, the Delaware Rapid Arbitration Act, which offers a new option for efficient and binding resolution of business disputes.

Our lawyers continue to expand our deep understanding of Delaware law. We have been intimately involved with many of the cases highlighted in this publication, and we have handled, as Delaware counsel, the most merger and acquisition transactions valued at $100 million or more for 16 years running, as reported in The Deal and Corporate Control Alert. We welcome the opportunity to discuss the practical implications of these recent developments in Delaware law with you, and we look forward to helping you whenever a need may arise.
