Law360 Ranks Morris Nichols a Delaware Regional Powerhouse

Wilmington, DE (September 2, 2019) – Law360 released its list of 2019 Regional Powerhouses, identifying Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP among the top Delaware law firms.

One of the few Delaware-centered firms recognized by Law360, Morris Nichols “took part in some of the past year’s most epic corporate law battles” and led in “high-dollar, ‘bet-the-business’ cases.” Partner Andy Johnston noted “Every day brings new questions, challenging us to innovate and grow as we help navigate important business issues.”   

In the past year, Morris Nichols represented Anthem Inc. in its high-profile merger dispute with Cigna, won a reversal of a Chancery Court order for the multibillion-dollar sale of energy and commodity recycling company Oxbow Carbon LLC, and counseled private equity firm Apollo Global Management LLC in a complex leveraged tender offer and secondary buyout for the $1.1 billion acquisition of Smart & Final Stores.
