Delaware

More than half a million business entities have their legal home in Delaware, including more than 50 percent of all U.S. publicly-traded companies and 60 percent of the Fortune 500. Businesses choose Delaware because of its modern and flexible corporate laws, its business-friendly environment and its highly respected judicial system. The state is home to the Delaware Court of Chancery, which decides many of the nation’s leading business cases; the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, which decides many of the nation’s leading intellectual property disputes; and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware, which decides many of the nation’s largest bankruptcy cases.

Delaware has seen dramatic changes in its economic climate since the 1980s. As a result, many of the world’s largest banks, financial institutions and insurance, chemical, pharmaceutical and health care companies have established or expanded their operations in Delaware. StayLaw opened its Delaware office in 1999, in response to the unique role Delaware plays in the increasingly complex needs of our national and international clients.

Our Delaware Business Reorganization & Bankruptcy Practice represents clients before the state’s nationally recognized bankruptcy and business courts. Our attorneys have wide-ranging experience representing all of the key parties in bankruptcy cases, as well as counseling troubled companies on reorganization or restructuring alternatives, and resolving business disputes through negotiation or litigation. We have played a role in many of the significant bankruptcy cases filed in Delaware over the last decade.

Attorneys in our Corporate Practice represent boards of directors, management, special committees and significant shareholders of Delaware corporations. We advise such national and international clients on myriad corporate and commercial law matters, including mergers and acquisitions, the delivery of Delaware third-party legal opinions and non-consolidation opinions, corporate trust services, secured transactions, commercial lending, insurance law and venture capital investments. We also counsel clients on Delaware’s General Corporate Law, alternative entity law and administrative laws.

Our corporate attorneys work closely, both in and outside of Delaware, with our Litigation Practice to ensure that our clients understand and can properly evaluate the risks inherent in today’s corporate environment. Our litigators represent national and international clients in a wide variety of complex business and commercial disputes in Delaware’s federal and state courts, including those courts mentioned above. Our experience includes some of the largest bankruptcy, intellectual property and corporate disputes in the country.

As a firm, we value commitment to civil service, and our Delaware attorneys have held high positions in many sectors of government. Our team includes an executive committee member of the New Castle Co. Leadership Foundation and the former president of the International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation–Delaware Network. Members of our team also serve in the Delaware State Bar Association as the vice president of the Women and the Law Section, the chair of the Multicultural Judges and Lawyers Section, the chair of the Disaster and Hurricane Relief Committee, and a member of the Nominating Committee. In addition, our attorneys are involved in the community at large, whether volunteering for the Office of the Child Advocate or serving as board members of local not-for-profit organizations, such as The Bethesda Clinic, Inc. and Supporting Kidds, Inc., The Center For Grieving Children and their Families.
