Morris, Manning & Martin, LLP's Overview

Morris, Manning, & Martin is a full-service, Am Law 200, law firm with both national and international reach. We dedicate ourselves to the constant pursuit of our clients’ success. By combining market-leading legal services with a total understanding of our client’s needs, we are able to maximize effectiveness, efficiency, and opportunity while providing optimal value for our clients.

Client-Centered Enterprise
MMM is more than a full-service law firm, we are what our clients need us to be. We are their counsel, their advisors, and, most of the time, their friends. At the end of the day, our clients’ successes are the only true measure of our success. Therefore, we pursue a client-focused strategy to ensure that we have, and continue to develop, leading lawyers in fields of importance to our clients. Our end goal is to provide exceptional value for each client, which means understanding existing laws, as well as, issues on the horizon; navigating regulatory obstacles; providing access to complementary parties, such as investment banks or accounting firms; remaining vigilant in our pursuit of cost effective, quality counsel; and building long-term relationships.

Industry Leadership
A good business lawyer needs to be more than just a legal expert; he or she must also be an ally in helping clients build their companies and achieving their strategic objectives. Morris, Manning, & Martin’s lawyers have earned a national reputation for our commitment to excellence—from serving as a leading national real estate transactions firm, to defending Fortune 50 companies in nationwide class action litigations, to working with emerging companies to build equity and grow their business, to looking beyond today and developing practices to benefit our clients’ future needs. We are able to anticipate and address the rapid changes in financial markets, technologies, regulations, and operations that affect our clients. Our lawyers work to obtain the best legal outcome that fosters both short term and long term prosperity for their client’s business.

Diversity in the Workplace
As a firm that serves a wide array of regional, national and international companies and institutions, Morris, Manning, & Martin understands that having a diverse complement of lawyers and staff gives our clients a greater breadth of perspective. As a firm, we pride ourselves on including various personnel opinions and backgrounds to provide our clients with well-rounded representation. Achieving the Mansfield Certification, a national certification that measures whether firms affirmatively consider at least 30 percent women and attorneys of color for leadership and governance roles, recognizes our initiative in action.

Firm Spirit
MMMPact, our firm’s social responsibility program, embodies an integral part of our firm’s identity. Consisting of five established programs—Civic Leadership Initiative, Community Involvement Initiative, Diversity Initiative, Pro Bono Initiative, and Women’s Initiative—MMMPact provides the platform to demonstrate pride in our work, each other, our communities and our clients. It is our goal to have all of the firm's lawyers, paralegals and staff, contribute 50 hours toward an MMMPact program within a calendar year. This goal reflects not only our leadership’s commitment to excellence and prominence in nonprofit work, but also the hard work and dedication of everyone at the firm.
