The Commercial Law Counseling Group provides a wide array of commercial law services to Morris Nichols’ national, international and local clients.  Our attorneys have helped shape commercial law in Delaware and are recognized as leaders in their respective fields.  We handle a variety of complex transactions, including mergers, asset acquisitions and sales, joint ventures, financing and leasing transactions, bankruptcy-related transactions and business counseling, as well as the preparation of contracts of all types.  In addition, because Delaware law is often selected as the governing law for major national and international transactions, we work with both in-house and outside counsel in the structuring and documenting of such transactions.  We are also called upon regularly to provide third-party legal opinions relating to various matters, including financing transactions, fund formations, special-purpose entities, M&A closings and cross-border transactions.  The practice areas included within the Commercial Law Counseling Group include alternative entities, banking and financial services, governmental affairs, real estate and unclaimed property.
