Delaware Ranked #1 Again for Corporate Law

By Brett Melson Friday, October 5, 2012

The 2012 State Liability Systems Ranking study conducted by Harris Interactive has just been released and Delaware is again ranked first among all fifty states. The study was conducted to assess how fair and reasonable the states’ tort liability systems are perceived to be by U.S. businesses. Delaware has achieved the top spot since the annual survey of senior litigators and top executives began in 2002. Perhaps that’s why many think of Delaware as the “Home of the Corporation.”

Delaware’s modern and highly respected corporation statute, well-developed case law, nationally recognized Court of Chancery, user-friendly Secretary of State’s Office, along with a legislature that continues to recognize the importance of keeping Delaware’s business laws current, are the main reasons why companies continue to select Delaware as the Number One choice for forming a Corporation or Limited Liability Company (LLC).
