Morris Law > Firm Profile
Morris Law was founded in 2014 and are now a law firm with nearly 80 employees and lawyers from various backgrounds and with different experiences. Some has a background from e.g. Setterwalls, MSA and Delphi. Together with our younger talents, this is a great mix.
In an industry that is steeped in tradition, we are forging our own path. This is based on the belief that the law can be made more transparent and presented in a better way, that payment models can and will be reviewed and challenged, that new technology is there to be used, and that business law can and will therefore represent the interests of people and businesses – not lawyers. So simple, yet so challenging – that is our big idea!
