Greer Mallette understands that part of zealous representation is looking beyond the dispute at hand and focusing on the client’s broader business needs and goals. Some of the most valuable counsel he provides to Christian & Small clients is helping them pick and choose battles that are worth fighting in the context of their business goals.

Greer litigates disputes among business owners, including claims of shareholder oppression, squeeze-out and breach of fiduciary duties. He also works with banks, title companies and other property owners to resolve real estate problems, such as title and boundary disputes.

Greer frequently lectures on property litigation matters. He continues to apply his undergraduate degree in natural resources and work experience he gained before law school in environmental compliance to environmental tort and trespass claims.
