Statutory Proceedings under Delaware’s Business Statutes

Morris Nichols was founded in 1931 by former Federal Delaware Judge Hugh M. Morris. The firm’s partners later became principal draftsman of the modern Delaware General Corporation Law and the Financial Center Development Act.

The Delaware corporate and alternative entity statutes include a number of statutory proceedings that are decided exclusively by the Court of Chancery.  The Litigation Group routinely is involved in these statutory proceedings, which include claims for inspection of books and records, claims by directors for advancement and indemnification of their legal fees, claims to compel an annual stockholders’ meeting, and claims seeking appraisal of the fair value of stockholders’ shares.
