Corporate Counseling


Morris Nichols has for decades, and continues today, to play an important role in the development and evolution of Delaware corporate law. Our lawyers offer unparalleled legal advice to publicly traded and privately held corporations and their boards of directors and officers. We also advise international law firms, in-house counsel, and private equity and venture capital investors.

Our practice focuses on issues of corporate governance and those that are more transactional in nature, including advice concerning mergers, acquisitions, spin-offs, financings and other complex transactions. Our work ranges from suggesting simple solutions based on our Delaware experience to providing formal legal opinions to designing and structuring complex transactions for businesses and investors throughout the world. We also regularly serve as special counsel to boards of directors and board committees, particularly in situations involving potential conflicts of interest.
