Pepperdine University's Geoffrey H. Palmer Center for Entrepreneurship and the Law will host the Delaware Corporate Law Forum: A Conversation with Members of the Delaware Judiciary on Friday, Nov. 13, at 12:30 p.m. in Classrooms C and D at the School of Law.
With over half of all U.S. firms trading on the NYSE and the NASDAQ, and over 60 percent of the Fortune 500 companies incorporated in Delaware, Delaware's role in corporate law is unparalleled. The courts of the State of Delaware are widely regarded by major corporations as the preeminent forum to resolve corporate disputes within an expedited time frame, and the Delaware judiciary continues to play a unique leadership role of national and international importance on issues affecting corporations.
Myron T. Steele, chief justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, and Jack B. Jacobs, justice of the Delaware Supreme Court, will speak on current topics affecting corporate governance, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), and the importance of Delaware corporate law on a national and international level.
Delaware practitioner Mark A. Morton of Potter Anderson & Corroon, and corporate M&A specialist James R. Griffin (JD '96) of Fulbright & Jaworski LLP, will be participating and moderating the forum.
