We are pleased to present our 2023 Delaware Corporate Law and Litigation Year In Review.

In 2023, the Delaware courts issued many decisions addressing an array of important topics, including director and officer oversight obligations, the role of boards in navigating environmental, social, and governance issues, dual-class stock structures and controlling stockholder conflicts of interests, structuring and process considerations for mergers and acquisitions, the enforceability of advance notice bylaws in the face of stockholder activism, and governance matters in the venture-backed company context. The Delaware General Corporation Law was also updated in certain significant ways.

The 2023 Delaware Corporate Law and Litigation Year in Review surveys the cases and developments that should be of most interest to boards, management, and investors for both public and private companies, and highlights important takeaways from them.
