Practice/Organization Description

In an-ever changing legal landscape, effective counsel must do more than simply minimize risk — it must be a partner and ally in all decisions, helping clients make proactive choices that position them for growth. At Morris James, we serve our clients in this manner with the highest levels of professionalism, skill and integrity.


Morris James' attorneys regularly go to trial in every court in Delaware. We apply our comprehensive business and industry knowledge to tactical advocacy to solve the problem at hand and provide recommendations for avoiding future risks. Our clients have confidence in us when dealing with complex cases significant to their businesses. For each matter where it is engaged, Morris James will complete an early case assessment. This includes reviewing the merits of a client's substantive position, the potential cost of each stage of the litigation, and coordinating these considerations to develop the client's ultimate goal in the litigation. Those goals may be a determined persistence and judgment for the defense, aggressive damage recovery, injunctive relief, expedited resolution, or a fair settlement. Morris James also has an extensive jury trial practice. Our attorneys bring a wide range of experience to every case they handle. In the past, we have represented clients in the healthcare, insurance, financial services, automotive, and pharmaceutical, among other industries. Drawing from the strengths and experience of our litigators, Morris James LLP has proven records of success in many areas of dispute resolution, including alternative entities, bankruptcy and creditors’ rights, corporate and commercial litigation, corporate governance, ediscovery management, employment law, insurance law, intellectual property litigation, products liability, professional liability and special committee representation.


Morris James’ Business Transactions, Strategic Planning and Counseling Practice encompasses a large and diverse group of practitioners that provide innovative solutions to business clients across a broad range of industries and professions. We bring to each engagement a wealth of experience honed by literally thousands of transactions, ranging in scope from modest local start-ups to sophisticated domestic and cross border financings valued in excess of $1.5 Billion. Our collective experience in business, finance, taxation, and real estate transactions, combined with our in-depth knowledge of all aspects of Delaware corporate and alternative entity law, enables us to provide sophisticated, comprehensive, and cutting-edge representation to clients throughout the entire life cycle of a business entity. We handle commercial transactions, corporate advice, corporate trust and fiduciary services, Delaware advantage trusts, legal opinions, commercial real estate, structured finance, succession planning and taxation.
