Delaware courts strive to maintain preeminence

When you are at the top of your game, someone always wants to take your place. In Delaware, we say bring it on!

Delaware is always facing competition for corporate cases. As a result, Delaware courts evolve to meet litigants' needs and to maintain top marks in legal community.

Here's some recent examples:

In March, Chancery Court -- the nation's leading forum for business disputes -- set up new fast-track arbitration procedures in an effort to broaden its appeal and bolster Delaware's preeminence.

Last week, the state's Superior Court system -- which handles civil and criminal cases along with business lawsuits -- established a division designed specifically to give corporate litigants a more focused, predictable forum.

Modern and flexible corporate laws, and the highly-respected Courts of Delaware make a powerful combination. It's no wonder businesses choose Delaware- more than 850,000 business entities have their legal home in Delaware including more than 50% of all U.S. publicly-traded companies and 63% of the Fortune 500 to be exact.
