The Delaware Rapid Arbitration Act (DRAA), passed in 2015, has introduced an alternative dispute resolution route that allows for faster and more efficient resolution of certain types of disputes that arise under Delaware General Corporate Laws, including those resulting from venture capital transactions. The revised modelling forms each offer a comprehensive set of design options that allow practitioners to slightly change dispute resolution rules to take advantage of the benefits of the ARAD. There are a large number of explanatory notes that accompany these provisions and provide an excellent primer for practitioners interested in the use of the DRAA. A number of changes have been made to the provisions of the voting agreement on the standard forms to ensure that the delay can be implemented effectively and to reduce the shareholder share potential of minority shareholders. In particular, in some cases, the conditions of the charge have been changed so that the rules are not as strict as the criteria that the final acquisition agreement must meet in order to enforce the delay. For example, the requirement that compensation be strictly proportional has been removed to reflect the fact that this is often not the case for R and; D, even if, in general, compensation must be proportionate. In addition, a project option has been inserted, under which the parties agree in advance to waive claims for breach of the trust obligation in the event of a delay in the transaction. This was introduced to reflect the growing concerns of the corporate community about the risk of Trados-type trust rights, collected by common shareholders and minority preferred shareholders.
