Chancellor Leo Strine, Jr. of Delaware’s Court of Chancery gave a speech at his alma mater, the University of Delaware, and discussed why Delaware is an attractive place for companies to incorporate. His Honor indicated that it was not, as some wrongly believe, because Delaware does not tax companies as much as other states. To the contrary, our franchise taxes are higher than many other states. Rather, the top judicial officer of Delaware’s equity court explained that a big factor is the predictability and speed with which decisions are dispatched–without the variable of juries. An article highlighting the presentation is available here.
