State statutes govern the creation and dissolution of corporations, as well as other aspects of corporations.  Due to its favorable laws, Delaware is a popular state of incorporation.  Statutes and treatises pertaining to Delaware are included in this guide.  Federal statutes come into play also, for example, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, intended to restore public confidence in corporate governance.  This guide includes a page specifically on corporate governance sources.

Several different corporate forms may be available, including corporations, limited liability companies and professional corporations. 

For information on nonprofit corporations, partnerships and agency law see Related Guides below.
