We excel in serving as outside counsel to some of the largest businesses in the country: Fortune 500 companies, health care and insurance providers, and players’ unions in the country’s largest sports organizations, just to name a few categories of clients we represent.
Why do we attract clients like you? Many times, it is because inside general counsel and corporate executives appreciate our work during highly visible litigation. They know we understand the larger, real-world context for successful legal decision-making during litigation.
As a result, our clients rely on our judgment with confidence. They know we can provide them with the insights they need in order to choose wisely from their available options in complex corporate matters.

Lisa Greely, Independent Financial Group, LLC
I knew I had best firm when I began working with Berens & Miller, P.A.. They were very “hands on” and attentive to every matter that needed attention. Their procedure to handle the issues were firm and knowledgeable but approached with kindness and compassion that you don’t typically see with attorneys. I will not hesitate to recommend them to others.

They are extremely responsive to our needs and very thorough in their legal work. I am pleased with how the attorneys at Berens & Miller assist us in navigating through the legal and business issues that arise in our nonprofit environment.
