Business & Defense Law

Tennessee Business Lawyers

As a business person, you expect your lawyer to have the experience and knowledge to guide you toward your specific objectives. Since 1973, the Butler, Vines & Babb law firm in Knoxville, Tennessee, has represented businesses of all sizes in a wide range of issues.

Businesses are regulated both at a federal and a state level and you need a lawyer representing you who can successfully navigate both of these on your behalf. Butler, Vines, and Babb can help you with everything from the formation of your business and planning your estate to defending your business in civil litigation, class action, workers comp cases, and more.

Every business needs to hire a great lawyer from the early stages of their company no matter how big or small they are. Your business attorney is there to advise you on a wide range of issues connected to your business from zoning laws and trademarks through formal business incorporation and liability - not to mention representing you in lawsuits. If you wait until you are being sued then you have left it way too late! Choose your business attorney sooner rather than later.

At our law firm, every client receives personal attention from our lawyers and every case — from small businesses to Fortune 500 corporations — is handled as a big case. You can expect the same level of experience and meticulous preparation on every business law matter you bring to our law firm.
