Commercial Transactions


Morris Nichols provides cutting edge transactional advice to national, international and local clients. Our lawyers excel at complex, innovative transactions — matters that include mergers, asset acquisitions and sales; joint ventures; financing and leasing, including structured financing; bankruptcy-related deals; as well as the structuring of commercial contracts of every kind. Morris Nichols is the first choice as local counsel for complex Delaware law issues involved in such transactions.  

Our market leading experience is recognized by clients who routinely turn to us to provide third-party legal opinions on a variety of complex transactions, including mergers and acquisitions; cross-border deals; securities offerings; transactions involving Delaware trusts; and a broad range of financings.

We regularly advise banking and financial services clients contemplating a deal in Delaware. Our lawyers helped draft the Financial Center Development Act; legislation that resulted in Delaware’s prominence as a national banking center. As a result, we have organized numerous banks and trust companies in the state and have represented banking clients in several major transactions, including the merger of J.P. Morgan and Chase.

We counsel clients on a broad range of commercial contracting matters. Our lawyers help clients with contracts of all types and across virtually every industry, including contracts governed by the Uniform Commercial Code.
