Our future success is the quality of our associates.

Why Morris Nichols


Since 1930, Morris Nichols attorneys have been credited with shaping the business-friendly legislation that now applies to 60% of the world’s largest corporations and a half-million other organizations incorporated in Delaware.


We have achieved a significant national presence, yet we have retained our character as a Delaware firm — collegial, dedicated to the community and bar, and eminently qualified to provide the highest level of service to clients in local, national and global markets.


Morris Nichols partners and associates come from the top-tier law schools in the United States. Our level of experience, legal sophistication and technological capital investment is the equal of larger national firms yet our smaller size results in closer contact between partners and associates and more hands-on training and professional development and responsibilities for young attorneys.


From a myriad of industries, retained as lead counsel or co-counsel, our clients include giants among the Fortune 500, complex alternative legal entities, smaller firms and partnerships, financial institutions, government agencies, law firms, and not-for-profit organizations.


Our efforts in corporate, intellectual property, business reorganization and restructuring and real estate law have been singled out and recognized by The National Law Journal, The Deal, IP Law & Business, The Daily Bankruptcy Review, The Legal Intelligencer, Thompson Reuters, and Bloomberg Financial.  Our attorneys are quoted in The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and other publications. Chambers USA and The Best Lawyers in America consistently rank Morris Nichols among their highest levels of recognition.
