Mr. Mills serves as general corporate counsel to a diverse mix of clients ranging from small, emerging companies to established, multi-million dollar corporations. In doing so, he advises on a wide range of legal matters to meet the needs of his clients and to assist them in negotiating their commercial deals (i.e. buy/sell agreements, licensing contracts, and real estate/leasing transactions).

Jack also has significant experience in commercial real estate transactions involving multi-million dollar properties. At times, this work required direct interaction with local governments concerning zoning and land use restrictions.

Some of Jack’s past and present endeavors include:

  • Spearheading his client’s asset sale to Cintas Corporation;
  • Facilitating large real estate transactions with banks, government entities, and private third-parties;
  • Preparing and negotiating commercial leases;
  • Successfully managing counsel in multi-million dollar insurance cases and legal matters outside of Ohio;
  • Representing shopping centers; and
  • Serving as local counsel to large, prominent retail chains.
