It's Good Being First

According to today's WSJ, 81% of senior corporate attorneys indicate that a State's litigation environment could affect their company’s business decisions.

Who's #1?

Delaware received top billing for the states mentioned as having "reasonable and fair" legal systems, with Nebraska, North Dakota, Virginia and Iowa also receiving recognition. Really this is no surprise to those in the know; after all, the Delaware Court of Chancery is widely recognized as the nation's preeminent forum for dispute resolution.

As their website proudly boasts, "Its unique competence in and exposure to issues of business law are unmatched." You don't make statements like that unless you can back them up!

So who are the worst? According to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce you don't want to end up in litigation in Mississippi, West Virginia, Alabama, Louisiana or Illinois.
