Areas of Expertise

When you are looking for a law firm to represent your business and its interests, it is crucial to select one with a variety of business law experience. Otherwise, you risk having to hire a different firm for each separate legal matter that may arise. 

Fortunately, Miller Law is your one-stop shop for all things business law. We have assisted countless clients in areas such as: 

  • Commercial business litigation, 
  • Automotive litigation, 
  • Shareholder oppression, 
  • Shareholder disputes, and 
  • Employment litigation. 

No matter what your business requires, our team of Michigan business lawyers has the tools and resources to assist. 

Business Dispute Resolution

Owning and operating a business can certainly be rewarding. But it is no secret that business disputes are a common occurrence when it comes to running a business.  

No matter how cautious you are in the pursuit of your business ventures, there is always a possibility that a dispute may arise. In fact, it is likely that at least one dispute will arise at some point in the course of operating your business. When this occurs, it is important to know where you can turn.

The seasoned business law attorneys at Miller Law help clients navigate business disputes each and every day. Regardless of the particular dispute, our goal is to help our clients reach a favorable outcome for a reasonable cost. 

Our attorneys are experienced negotiators. Where possible, we will strive to resolve your dispute without the need for court intervention. 

Of course, not all business disputes can be resolved through negotiations. Further, we will settle your matter only when doing so is in your business’s best interest. When negotiation and settlement aren’t feasible, our attorneys will not hesitate to take your case to court. 

Our skilled litigators have extensive experience trying cases in state and federal courts and are seasoned in the area of business law. The team of Michigan business lawyers at Miller Law has expertise in a broad range of areas, giving us a deeper understanding of some of the issues our clients are facing in the business industry. 

Additionally, while we will always be a zealous advocate for our clients, we understand that sometimes resorting to litigation is not the most cost-effective way to resolve a dispute. When necessary, and with client approval, we can also help resolve business disputes through alternative channels, such as arbitration or mediation. 

Contract Disputes

Contracts are an integral part of most, if not all, business entities. 

Throughout the course of your business, you will likely sign hundreds of contracts. Examples of contracts that frequently arise in business-related legal disputes include:

  • Employment agreements,
  • Contractor agreements, 
  • LLC operating agreements,
  • Partnership agreements,
  • Shareholder agreements,
  • Sales contracts,
  • Commercial lease agreements,
  • Property and equipment lease contracts,
  • Real estate contracts, and
  • Purchase orders.

All too often, however, business owners enter into contractual agreements without consulting legal counsel or fully understanding the terms and conditions they are agreeing to. By doing so, businesses often sacrifice important rights and saddle themselves with unreasonable obligations. 

This is where a Michigan business lawyer can be a great asset to you and your business. 

When a dispute arises out of a business contract, it is important to know how you can move forward. From employment contracts to shareholder agreements and everything in between, Miller Law can help you fight for your rights and resolve your contract-related legal disputes. 

Shareholder Rights Disputes

Shareholders have important rights, no matter how many or few shares they own. Unfortunately, however, majority shareholders in a company frequently use their control to operate the company in their favor at the expense of minority shareholders. This is what is known as shareholder oppression

If you are a minority shareholder, know that you have certain legal rights. At Miller Law, we have extensive experience representing shareholders whose rights are being violated and will fight for your rights to the full extent of the law.
