    Make Delaware Your Corporate Home

    In the U.S., business entities are formed at the state level. So if you are looking to expand your business in the United States, you will need to select a state for your company's corporate home. This is a very important decision because the laws of the state that you select will govern the business affairs of your company.

    This concept often is referred to as the internal affairs doctrine. Internal affairs refers to all of the corporate governance and fiduciary issues that arise within your business, including but not limited to the relationship among stockholders, the duties and obligations of officers, directors and other managers, the election and appointment of directors, the regulation of dividend payments, and the procedures for authorizing the business to acquire and sell major assets or to undertake a fundamental transaction such as merger, consolidation, or dissolution.

    The laws governing a corporation's internal affairs also can have a significant effect on the outcome of important legal disputes. Since the internal affairs of a corporation are regulated at the state level, your choice of which state's law will govern those matters is one of the most important decisions you can make about your business.

    The State of Delaware should be at the top of your list, for it is widely regarded as the corporate capital of the world. Delaware has been the preeminent place for businesses to incorporate in the United States for more than 100 years and is currently the legal home to more than a million business entities.

    While the sheer number of corporations and limited liability companies organized in Delaware is significant, it is equally significant that so many large and important companies are incorporated in Delaware.
