Because it is the corporate domicile of choice in the United States, Delaware produces and implements the substantive laws governing internal affairs for most of our nation's corporations - large and small. As a result, most battles concerning the application of those laws are waged in Delaware courts. In Corporate and Commercial Practice in the Delaware Court of Chancery, you'll profit from the singular insight and firsthand experience of two of the court's leading practitioners. You'll quickly find out why the Court of Chancery is to corporate litigation what the Delaware General Corporation Law is to the nation's corporate community. And most important, you'll learn about numerous topics never before explored in such a comprehensive manner. Inside you'll find key coverage of:

• Jurisdiction, venue and service
• Motions practice
• Multijurisdictional litigation
• Depositions and discovery
• Privileges and immunities
• Defenses, remedies and appeals
• Costs and attorneys fees
• And much more.
