About Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP

From an eight-attorney Atlanta real estate outfit, Morris, Manning & Martin has grown to become a reputable regional player in the Southeast with some international flex, particularly in China and Brazil.

Morris Manning the Helm

In 1976, eight Atlanta lawyers formed a small firm dedicated to real estate and litigation. Over the next few decades, Morris, Manning & Martin grew in size and practice area breadth until it broke into the largest 200 firms in the country in 2005. Legal 500 and Chambers & Partners has recognized MMM for its practices in real estate investment trusts, middle-market mergers & acquisitions, venture capital and emerging companies, real estate, intellectual property, trade, environmental, employment and domestic tax law. The firm's Trade group is recognized as a leading practice in Chambers Global, Chambers Asia and Chambers USA, and its Real Estate Capital Markets team is one of the only 11 firms to be recognized as a leading national practice by both Legal 500 and Chambers USA. 

Morris Manning has also turned heads with its corporate department, boasting a strong public securities offerings resume. Morris Manning's corporate team is also strong in venture capital, averaging about 50 VC deals annually and playing a constant role in Atlanta's ever-developing tech industry. The firm's international practice, bolstered by a contingent of Chinese-speaking staff, claims to have filed one in ten of every U.S. patent filed by Chinese companies.

And the firm has continued to build on its real estate roots, which, according to the firm website "has handled nearly $50 billion in transactions, financings, joint ventures and public offerings for real estate clients."
