Wilmington, DE (May 31, 2017) – The Legal 500 United States 2017 results have been released and once again “top-notch firm” Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP ranks among leading U.S. law firms in two M&A categories.

The Legal 500 US ranking tables organize various practice areas into a single national ranking, spotlighting law firms with a national presence and work on sophisticated matters. With Morris Nichols appearing on the tables for “Dispute resolution: M&A: litigation: defense” and “M&A/corporate and commercial: M&A: middle-market (sub-$500m),” sources hail the firm’s “rich history in the Court of Chancery—it knows the legal issues at stake and can work through the most complex problems.”

Morris Nichols partners William M. Lafferty and Kenneth J. Nachbar each earned special designation as “Leading Lawyers” in the “Dispute resolution: M&A: litigation: defense” category, standing among just 19 trial lawyers selected for inclusion on the elite list.
