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 have 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 has been deemed 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 resumé. Morris Manning's corporate team is strong in venture capital as well, 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. patents filed by Chinese companies.
