Why do so many businesses choose Delaware?

While most businesses choose to organize in their home state, many entities choose Delaware and the state’s various benefits. First and foremost, Delaware General Corporation Law is considered by many professionals to be very flexible and business friendly. The Delaware Court of Chancery is over 200 years old and this court has provided the backbone for much of corporate case law within the United States.
