Delaware’s Legal System Ranked No. 1 in Nation for Fifth Consecutive Year

For those in the know, this news will come as no surprise.

Delaware's legal system has been ranked No. 1 in the nation for the fifth consecutive year, according to an annual survey released by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The study is a benchmark by which companies, policymakers and the media assess the fairness of legal systems in the 50 states. The more than 1,400 attorneys who participated in the poll were asked to judge a number of factors, including overall treatment of tort and contract litigation, treatment of class action suits and mass consolidation suits, judges’ impartiality and competence and juries’ predictability and fairness.

"Year after year, the U.S. Chamber proclaims what our member companies already know: Delaware is a great place to do business," said James A. Wolfe, president and CEO of the Delaware State Chamber of Commerce. "We are proud of our legal system's top ranking in the nation for the fifth year in a row. It's one of the many things that make Delaware such a business-friendly state."
