About Morris Nichols Arsht & Tunnell

Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP has a long tradition serving the needs of business, non-profits and residents who call Delaware home. Judge John Hugh M. Morris hung his shingle in Wilmington in 1930 and was soon joined by Alexander Nichols in 1931, S. Samuel Arsht in 1934 and the final named partner former Delaware Supreme Court Justice James M. Tunnell, Jr. in 1958.

Having been influential in the formation of Delaware's business friendly regulations (name partner S. Samuel Arsht chaired a committee that revised and updated the state's corporation code), MNAT developed strong corporate, commercial, IP, bankruptcy, general business and real estate practices to attract well-known clients such as McDonald's Corporation, Nokia, 3M Company and Viacom Inc.
