Miller Law Firm LLC has been founded on September 27, 2012, by Masi Nayyem. There were many companies in the market with commercial priority at that time. When establishing Miller, we aimed at promoting the rule of law as the most important value.

Since the beginning of the Company’s work, its main focus has been business start-up and support. Thus, over the years, Miller’s Corporate Practice has become a full-fledged business assistant. We have always found effective legal solutions where others would break the law.

2013

For the first year, the Company worked for a single client.

In 2013, the Revolution of Dignity began. For some time, the Company went near to winding up due to differences in values with the Client and, as a consequence, termination of cooperation. However, we have overcome these difficulties due to our adherence to integrity and the ability to find solutions.

2014

Karina Verbovenko (at that time), now managing partner, joined the Company as a lawyer. At that time, Miller had already specialised in the start-up and further support of the restaurant business. The Company quickly became recognisable in the market. It was in 2014 when we had Clients who we helped develop, while developing ourselves at the same time. Now they exist as big businesses.

 

At the same time, Miller’s team was so small that the Company did not even need to systematise internal processes. For example, each lawyer kept his or her own files in Excel spreadsheets. Considering the volume of tasks that we had, this was normal.

2015

In August 2015, the Company’s founder, Masi Nayyem, was called up for military service. He had to make a decision within one day: either close down or delegate management to a responsible person who would preserve the Company and its reputation. That person was Karina Panchenko, a lawyer back then. For the next 17 months, she ran Miller on her own.

 

We began to establish internal processes during this period. It was then that the ambition emerged not just to remain in the legal services market, but to become one of the most famous in Ukraine. The guiding principles of the Company became integrity, creativity, expertise and discipline.

2017

After partner Masi Nayyem completed his military service, the Company continued its development and began to expand the range of services it now provides. This is how the division into practices came about.

2017 was the year of the first high-profile cases, projects that demanded great responsibility and expertise.

2019

The Defence Practice made available in the first months gave the opportunity to defend our Clients in criminal proceedings. Partner Oleksii Nosov joined the team. At the time, Oleksii had five years of experience in supporting public prosecutions. Therefore, he became the head of the Practice.

Later, we expanded the list of services, and the Practice under Oleksii’s leadership became the Criminal Practice.

2020

In 2020, the Practice in Cases on Administrative Offences and the Practice of Honour, Dignity and Business Reputation Protection began to take shape. We had a number of successful cases.

The year of the pandemic has been fruitful for the Company: we have learned to work remotely, manage our time better and defend our Clients’ rights equally efficiently. During the year, the Practice in Cases on Administrative Offences won dozens of cases involving breaches of rights during the lockdown.

The Practice of Honour, Dignity and Business Reputation Protection has also brought success for the Company. Within this Practice, we have defended both public figures whose non-property rights have been breached, and journalists defending their professional right to freedom of expression. The professional work of our lawyers before the courts has brought victory to our Clients.

2021

We continue to do our job professionally and responsibly. Our lawyers provide defence in high-profile criminal cases. We continue to support successful businesses and repel raider attacks against our Clients, defend their rights before courts and their business reputation. We have also started to communicate more with our Clients and tell them about the legal issues in simple language.

We are proud of our victories, but we do not intend to remain complacent. Our Company plans to go deeper into the services it already provides and, for the first time, enter the rankings of law firms in Ukraine… thanks to you.
