The New York Times Sunday Paper, last week, published an article about Incorporating in Delaware that was misleading. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/01/business/how-delaware-thrives-as-a-corporate-tax...
This infographics corrects those myths because it highlights the real reason people incorporate in Delaware, because of liability protection. Delaware is the ultimate bullet-proof jacket. The US Chamber of Commerce has rated Delaware number one in every category since it started ranking judicial systems.
Delaware is the corporate capital of Main Street and Wall Street. Delaware has an environment which allows businesses small and large to prosper because it allows business managers to take risks without fear of personal liability. Other states have “thinner bullet proof jackets”. This Delaware protection is called the “business judgment rule” and provides the manager protection in most instances, provided there is good faith and no self-dealing. This protection is upheld by a business court called the “Court of Chancery” which is comprised of judges who, when nominated by the Governor, are required to be sophisticated corporate lawyers.
If you form a company in Delaware the laws that govern the “internal affairs” of the company will be Delaware laws, no matter where your company does business. This is affirmed in the United States Chambers of Commerce study on legal systems, which has rated Delaware number one each time it has ranked state legal systems. This will help you in the future when you need it.
