Chambers USA has described Morgan Chu as “beyond doubt the most gifted trial lawyer in the USA” who “delivers staggering results for clients.”
Morgan was co-managing partner of the firm for a maximum two terms from 1997 to 2003 and is presently chair of the Litigation practice group.
Morgan joined Irell & Manella LLP as an associate in 1977 and became a partner in 1982.
Morgan was lead trial counsel in some of the world’s largest—and, in some cases, precedent-setting—verdicts, judgments and settlements, resulting in actual payments totaling more than $9 billion.
Morgan earned his B.A. from the University of California, M.S.L from Yale University, & his J.D. (magna cum laude) from Harvard Law School.
