JUSTICE RANDY J. HOLLAND GIVES KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT 2007 CORPORATE GOVERNANCE SUMMIT IN TAIWAN
In December, Justice Randy J. Holland of the Delaware Supreme Court gave the keynote address at the 2007 Corporate Governance Summit sponsored by the Taiwan Corporate Governance Association, the State of Delaware Taipei Office, the Taiwan Stock Exchange Corporation, and the Gre-Tai Securities Market. He also gave a keynote address at the Soochow University College of Law and participated in a symposium at the National Taiwan University Center for Corporate and Financial Law. Justice Holland’s appearance was widely reported in the financial pages of several Taipei newspapers.
While in Taiwan, Justice Holland also visited the Judges and Prosecutors Training Institute of the Ministry of Justice and met with the Chief Justice of Taiwan, In-Jaw Lai, who is a graduate of Harvard Law School. When Chief Justice Lai took office earlier this year, he stated that Taiwan could learn much about corporate law from the Delaware Supreme Court and the Delaware Court of Chancery. Taiwan is particularly interested in Delaware’s high fiduciary duty standards, the business judgment rule, and the role of independent directors. The Chief Justice of Taiwan invited Justice Holland to return next year to address all of the judges in Taiwan. The Delaware delegation to Taiwan included attorneys Zhun Lu and Matthew Greenberg of Connolly, Bove, Lodge & Hutz and John Pastor from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), who coordinated the arrangements.
