For the ninth consecutive year the Delaware Courts have been listed as the top courts in the U.S. The survey, sponsored by the U.S. Chamber Institute for Legal Reform, takes into account a number of factors, including judges’ impartiality, timeliness of decisions, and judges’ competence. On the other end of the spectrum is Chicago, deemed the worst court system in the U.S. by the survey. Washington state was the 22nd ranked state.
What makes Delaware Courts so special?
One of the major reasons that Delaware Courts are held on such a high pedestal is that they have a specialized court system known as the Court of Chancery that handles all corporate matters in Delaware—which comprise the vast majority of litigation in Delaware. These courts are specifically designed to handle disputes with efficiency and sophistication. Since the judges are dealing specifically with corporate law-related matters, their focus and level of expertise in these matters is unmatched.
Furthermore, the Delaware Supreme Court also has a reputation for expedited review of corporate cases where time is of the essence, as is the case with many major corporate disputes. From top to bottom, the Delaware Courts are cream of the crop, offering a level of expertise and efficiency that is unparalleled in the U.S.
