The Morris Nichols Difference


Morris Nichols has achieved a significant national presence, while retaining its character as a Delaware firm: collegial, dedicated to its community and bar, and eminently qualified to serve clients in local, national, and global markets. 

Our commitment to the highest quality of service requires equally high levels of commitment and talent from our greatest resource: our people.  Attorneys and staff cultivate and enjoy the greatest respect for each other.  These relationships sustain us day after day and during times of peak effort and inspire us to continue to grow and develop as individuals, as colleagues and as coworkers.

Our Clients

Morris Nichols represents global giants from the myriad of industries that incorporate in Delaware.  Our attorneys are credited with shaping the business-friendly legislation that has made Delaware home to more than 59% of the largest corporations in the U.S. and the world.   

Our clients include Fortune 500 companies, complex alternative legal entities, smaller firms and partnerships, financial institutions, government agencies, law firms, and not-for-profit organizations.  The firm is regularly involved as lead counsel or co-counsel in matters of national and international significance, as well as matters affecting our immediate community. 

National Standing, National Practice, National Recognition

Our attorneys receive the highest accolades from the most respected national media outlets and rating services including Chambers USA, Best Lawyers, Thompson Reuters and Bloomberg.  Incisive Media named Morris Nichols a 2011 “Go-To Law Firm” for the Fortune 500.  Our patent litigation practice is annually recognized as among the busiest in the US by such notable publications as the Law360 Litigation Almanac and IP Law and Business.  The Daily Bankruptcy Review placed our business reorganization and restructuring practice first among lead debtor counsel for mid-sized law firms.  Our Corporate and Business Litigation practice has received numerous recognitions including a member’s selection by Directorship as, “one of the most influential players in corporate governance.”  No less than The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, USA Today and The National Law Journal, among many others, have quoted and or reported on our activities.

Legal Solutions

Morris Nichols maintains a “big city” practice in terms of its legal sophistication and technological capital investment.  Our partners and associates come from the top-tier schools in the country.  Although our level of expertise is rivaled only by some larger national firms, our fee structure is considerably more favorable and cost-effective.
