Since 1959 Miller Johnson has worked hard to provide timely, personal and cost-effective attention to our clients’ legal needs.

Over the years, we’ve worked with numerous smaller entrepreneurial businesses, helping them grow and prosper. In fact, some of them are now our largest clients.

Through our work with our entrepreneurial clients, we’ve learned that while their needs are similar to those of larger organizations – they’re different, too. Therefore, in order to meet the legal requirements of entrepreneurial businesses precisely and effectively, Miller Johnson has formed the Entrepreneurial Practice Group.

From start-up and financing questions, expansion and diversification, to selling your business or passing it on to a family member, the Entrepreneurial Practice Group can provide guidance and appropriate advice on issues of importance, such as:

  • Choice of entity
  • Obtaining financing (bank debt, private offerings of equity, etc.)
  • Tax planning
  • Contract drafting and review
  • Ownership control
  • Employee relations
  • Estate planning and succession
  • Employee benefits
  • Trade secrets
  • Name protection
  • Hiring independent contractors

Whether you need a contract written or a vendor contract reviewed, resolution of a simple issue, or are confronting a complex situation, the Entrepreneurial Practice Group strives to address your legal needs.

Cost-Effective Timely Service
When it comes to running a smaller business, the phrase “Time is money” is especially true. We know that you don’t have time – or money – to waste. That’s why you’ll receive prompt responses to your questions, timely return of your phone calls, and meetings held at a time and location convenient for you.

We also realize the cost of legal services has a tremendous impact on your bottom line. Therefore, we’ve developed several cost-effective, value-added services offered exclusively by the Entrepreneurial Practice Group, including:

  • Package rates and not-to-exceed rates for standard projects such as incorporation, review of contract documents, shareholder agreements and limited liability company agreements, to name a few.
  • Attendance at annual shareholder, member or partner meetings free-of-charge.
