Delaware is an important cog in the wheel of successful business formation in the U.S., and Barnes & Thornburg focuses a large part of its practice on corporate law. It’s a perfect fit for us to be at the heart of corporate activity.
Because many privately and publicly held enterprises are organized under Delaware law, the state is a leading jurisdiction for the structuring of business and financing transactions, corporate ownership change and governance proceedings, intellectual property development and litigation, and business bankruptcy and reorganization cases. These are all areas of practice in which Barnes & Thornburg has knowledgeable and experienced attorneys in Delaware.
The firm’s attorneys appear before the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware in patent, copyright or trademark disputes and a variety of other litigation, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware in Chapter 11 cases and related adversary proceedings, the Delaware Court of Chancery on merger, acquisition, corporate governance and other issues, and the Delaware Superior Court for commercial and business-related cases.
We also assist businesses, financial institutions and other clients in projects and transactions that are based upon or involve Delaware law. Backed by more than 700 professionals practicing in more than 50 practice areas across the U.S., our Delaware attorneys can also call on their colleagues to advise local clients when needed.
An energetic and growing office, the attorneys in Delaware support the communities in which they live and work in various volunteer capacities.
