About Us

Morris Nichols has achieved a significant national presence, while retaining its character as a Delaware law firm: collegial, dedicated to community and bar, and eminently qualified to serve clients in local, national, and global matters. Our Delaware focus has allowed us to gain experience on a variety of large and complex transactions and disputes. We bring this experience to bear on all of our engagements in a client-centered firm.

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.
