Delaware Governor Jack Markell recently announced an impressive milestone: the state is now home to more than one million corporate entities. Long known as the nation’s “corporate capital,” Delaware is the legal domicile for more than half of all publicly traded U.S. companies and nearly two-thirds of the Fortune 500®, and serves a launching pad for 80% of all new initial public offerings.

“We have the best corporate law in the country … We have the best business court in the country,” said Markell during remarks on March 20. Businesses choose Delaware as their legal home thanks to the state’s business-friendly climate, clear corporate statutes, and its Chancery Court, a unique, centuries-old judicial body that has written much of U.S. corporate case law. In his remarks, Markell also cited the Delaware Division of Corporations’ efficiency as a major factor in making the First State the first choice of businesses worldwide.

Since 1899, companies have trusted Corporation Service Company® (CSC®) to help them form entities in the state of Delaware. CSC’s expertise, high levels of customer service and award-winning technology have led 90% of the Fortune 500® and a growing share of the Global 2000® to rely on it for business and legal services. Recently, CSC was named the industry's best provider of incorporation services by readers of the New Jersey Law Journal, and New York Law Journal readers have twice voted CSC #1 for Entity Management.

“As a legal home, Delaware remains the unrivaled choice of U.S. businesses, and an attractive location for global companies seeking to establish a domestic foothold,” said Steven Gades, CSC’s vice president for Corporate & Legal Solutions. “CSC has been here from the start, and we know the terrain better than anyone else. We have the experience, resources, and knowledge to help companies make the most of the advantages Delaware has to offer, and our tools make it easy for them to manage any number of entities.”
