ABOUT THIS COMPANY:
Morgan Lewis has branched out from its Philadelphia roots to build an international network of offices stretching from Beijing to Brussels. Today, Morgan Lewis’s strengths include labor, litigation, tax, intellectual property rights, IPOs, M&A and white collar.
From Brotherly Love to Global Love
Morgan Lewis was founded in Philadelphia in March 1873 by Charles Eldridge Morgan, Jr., a Civil War vet, and Francis Draper Lewis, a cotton merchant’s son. Ten years later, Morgan and Lewis hired Morris Rex Bockius, who was the driving force behind the firm for nearly four decades in the 1900s.

Core Practice Areas: Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation / Energy
Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation
The attorneys and other professionals in Morgan Lewis’s Employee Benefits and Executive Compensation Practice use their skills as counselors, strategists, and problem solvers to assist clients in finding creative solutions to their employee benefit–related business challenges. Our clients range from small, middle-market and Fortune 500 companies to financial institutions—insurance companies, banks, mutual fund complexes, investment advisers, and broker-dealers—as well as start-ups, tax-exempt organizations, educational institutions, and state or local governments. Our clients benefit from the strategic insight of a number of high-level government agency alumni, including former IRS, Department of Labor, and SEC officials who were involved in employee benefit plan and related regulation and enforcement while with the federal government.
Antitrust / Business Finance
Morgan Lewis provides practical advice to clients confronting antitrust issues—from the routine to the most complex and vexing. We regularly practice before antitrust enforcement agencies and courts around the world. Working seamlessly across the United States and globally, we lend our clients critical insight and the best strategies for handling complex transactions or bet-the-company litigation. Attorneys in the practice include former senior officials from the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), and, through our joint venture with TMI Associates in Tokyo, Japan’s Fair Trade Commission.
