Business Law

Nall & Miller, LLP provides our business clients with the tools and strategies necessary to avoid expensive and protracted litigation. When litigation becomes necessary, we employ creative and thoughtful legal strategies to maximize the chance of obtaining a favorable outcome.

We advise business owners at the earliest stages of business formation and business acquisition. As our business clients grow, we continue to assist with their varied daily business needs.

Vendor contracts and non-competition covenants require a thorough understanding of our clients’ unique business models and an eye for possible unintended consequences.

Collection of commercial and consumer debts inside and outside of bankruptcies requires our consideration for our business client’s bottom line. Early assessment of the costs versus benefits of collection efforts allows our clients to make informed decisions as to what collection measures to take. Our knowledge of the post-judgment collection process aids our clients in achieving the best possible outcome.

Employment matters require thoughtful planning to prevent claims. Claim prevention includes drafting and revising employee manuals and contracts. When businesses terminate employees, they consult with us to ensure that they are following proper protocol. When litigation becomes necessary, we vigorously represent our clients in discrimination cases and wage and hour cases.

Unfortunately, business owners can develop differences of opinion relating to the management of businesses. Most often, they work these issues out. However, in those cases where separation of shareholders and members of a business is required, this does not have to be fatal to our business clients. We advise and prepare businesses for how to separate and how to survive separation.

Nall & Miller has participated in and settled an international arbitration concerning multi-million dollar supply contracts. We have represented clients in anti-trust actions. We have represented clients in bankruptcy adversary proceedings, including collection matters and defense of preference claims. We have also represented clients in claims that minority shareholders have been frozen out, claims that officers have violated their fiduciary duties, claims for breaches of buyout agreements, and claims for breaches of covenants.
