Wilmington, De. – November 17, 2010 – Bradley W. Voss, a partner in the Commercial Litigation Practice Group of Pepper Hamilton LLP, helped to arrange a visit to Delaware for a delegation of representatives of the Supreme Commercial Court and the Ministry of Economic Development of the Russian Federation. Mr. Voss, along with members of the Delaware courts and bar association, spoke with the delegation about corporate law issues during the delegation’s visit to Delaware from November 15-17. Mr. Voss discussed procedure in the Delaware Court of Chancery and Delaware corporate law with the delegation on November 16. The delegation is studying Delaware corporate law and procedure in connection with its analysis of corporate law issues in Russia.

The focus of the delegation’s visit to Delaware was the Court of Chancery, the predominate corporate law court in the United States. The delegation observed proceedings in the Court of Chancery, and met with representatives of that court. As part of its visit, the delegation also visited the Complex Commercial Litigation Division of the Superior Court for New Castle County, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware, the Delaware Division of Corporations, and the Delaware Supreme Court. The delegation also attended a luncheon with members of the Corporation Law Section of the Delaware State Bar Association.

The delegation’s visit was sponsored by the U.S.- Russia Foundation for Economic Advancement and the Rule of Law, and follows a similar visit to Russia by American representatives this past July. The July visit to Russia included a roundtable discussion titled “Problems of Corporate Law in the Russian Federation and in the United States of America.”
