Justice Randy J. Holland of the Delaware Supreme Court recently gave the keynote address at the eighth annual summit of the Taiwan Corporate Governance Association that was held in Taipei, Taiwan. Holland also met with Hau-Min Rai, the chief justice of Taiwan’s Constitutional Court. Holland presented the chief justice with a copy of his recent book on Delaware Corporation Law that is only published in Chinese. One hundred signed copies of Holland’s book were distributed to the judges in Taiwan for use as a reference.
While Holland was in Taipei, he also made presentations at the Taiwan Stock Exchange and at the prestigious National Taiwan University’s Law School and Business School. The subjects of Holland’s various speeches were executive compensation, director’s fiduciary duties, corporate governance and corporate compliance responsibilities. In prior years, several judges from Taiwan have come to Delaware to learn about handling complex litigation involving commercial and corporate law. The Delaware courts that handle business matters are looked at as models nationally and internationally.
