Business Law

Miller, Kistler & Campbell is a full-service business law firm. Our experienced attorneys understand the many legal issues that businesses and their owners face on a daily basis, and we can provide professional advice on all transactional and litigation matters. As fixtures in central Pennsylvania’s business community for more than 100 years, we provide strategic partnership as well as sound legal advice.

Our goal is to establish a long-term relationship with your business and help you avoid problems before they arise. However, should you need to negotiate, pursue or resolve a legal claim, you can rest assured knowing that our litigators will aggressively pursue your rights.

Sound Advice. Personal Service. Proven Results

We recognize the growing complexity of running a business, so we provide professional, yet common-sense, counsel on the variety of issues that may impact your daily operations. Our clients range from small home-based businesses to major retailers and industry leaders, and we tailor our services to suit each such business.

By having detailed knowledge of your business’s operations, we can provide focused advice that is tailored to your goals and the practicalities of running your business. We work with business owners and operators to ensure that your growing business is protected in every transaction and relationship.

Knowledge Across the Spectrum of Business Activities

We routinely advise clients on all aspects of business ownership. Our attorneys are able to professionally counsel you on the formation of your business and advise you as to which business structure will work best for your needs. We work with an entity in Harrisburg to quickly and properly complete your business formation documents and allow you to have a direct line to the state government. When your business is formed, we are able to provide all necessary documentation relevant to formalizing your business, including bylaws, meeting minutes and stock certificates.

Of course, we enjoy watching our business clients grow. To that end, our lawyers are well-versed on the ongoing legal duties of businesses and corporations, and we are able to assist you with the unique needs that arise as your business grows and its operations expand. We are able to professionally negotiate various transactions on your behalf, including merger, buy-sell, and employment and business separation agreements. We are also experienced in all manner of litigation disputes that arise in the course of business.

Unique Experience in Regulatory Matters

Our firm is uniquely experienced in regulatory matters that may impact your business. We have successfully negotiated the purchase, transfer and sale of liquor licenses, and we have represented many clients before the Liquor Control Board. We have similar experience in a myriad other regulatory settings, from resolving copyright disputes to obtaining gas and oil permits to resolving environmental citations. Our attorneys draw on their professional experience and knowledge of the unique requirements of each regulatory setting.
