Morris Nichols welcomes applications from highly qualified lateral candidates with significant life and work experience in all practice areas.

At Morris Nichols, we recognize that a key component of our firm’s ongoing success is the quality of our associates. Our associate training program is designed not only to develop your legal skills, but also to challenge you to become the best that you can be as an individual. Recognizing the valuable experience and knowledge laterals bring to the firm, we take a tailored approach to their development. This includes education and feedback as well as integration into our practice group and the firm. Associate development at Morris Nichols happens in an environment that encourages personal responsibility and individuality.

Interested candidates should forward a cover letter, resume, transcript and writing sample to Crystal D. Deazle.

Open Position

Our legal teams are small, which means that every member of the team has to contribute significantly.  You are expected to get up to speed quickly.  Because of this, I am farther along in my career than my peers at other law firms.
