Personalized Service From An Established Business And Commercial Law Attorney.

When facing legal issues as a business owner or executive, it is critical to work with a lawyer who has the experience and knowledge to handle your legal matter effectively. However, most attorneys with this significant business law experience can only be found in large, multi-attorney firms, which usually means more red tape and increased costs.

At my law firm, John R. Nix, LLC, I bring my business clients the best of both worlds. I have been serving clients in Mobile and throughout Southern Alabama since 1977, and my experience includes many years as a Partner working in a large-firm environment handling complex litigation for major international corporations. As an AV Preeminent Rated* solo practitioner, I am able to provide you with the benefit of this experience and knowledge in a more efficient, cost-effective manner. With my law firm, you will not have to navigate the administrative red tape of larger law firms. You will work with me, your attorney, through all aspects of your case.

Business Formation

When starting a new business, there are numerous practical and legal concerns that need to be addressed at the front end in order to avoid unnecessary costs and problems down the road. I can help you with all aspects of starting your business, including:

Entity selection — LLCs, partnerships, corporations, sole proprietorships and S corps. Paperwork — Operating documents, partnership agreements, business plans and other initial documentation. Filing with the Secretary of State and other agencies.


I help business clients with all types of contract matters, including negotiation, drafting and review of:

  • Real estate purchase and sale agreements and deeds
  • Lease and rental agreements
  • Buying and selling businesses
  • Employment contracts
  • Vendor and servicing agreements
  • Shipping contracts
Commercial Litigation

I represent plaintiff and defendant businesses in all types of commercial disputes and litigation, including:

  • Shareholder disputes
  • Partnership disputes
  • Breach of contract claims
  • Tortious interference claims
  • Commercial lease, rental and property disputes
  • Construction disputes
  • Employment disputes

As a trained, experienced mediator, I am able to help clients resolve disputes outside of the courtroom through alternative dispute resolution (ADR), which is often much cheaper and more efficient than traditional litigation. In fact, because the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) approached me seeking my assistance, I now serve as a Mediator, on a contract basis, who mediates Charges of Discrimination filed with that Federal agency.
