Allison Manning-Carroll, a Nashville native and entrepreneur, founded Manning Carroll Law LLC to help other entrepreneurs and small businesses protect their brands and legacies. Prior to launching Manning Carroll Law, Allison spent several years as a trial attorney for the world’s largest retailer and also focused on litigating family law disputes. Now, Allison brings her business and legal sharpness to work with small businesses to protect their brands through the use of trademarks, contracts, and dispute resolution. Allison also works with small business owners to protect their assets and legacy through customized estate planning.
At Manning Carroll Law, our business law practice includes counseling start-up and early stage small businesses on entity formation, operation and governance matters, brand protection, and business strategy and planning. Allison’s experience extends across a wide range of industries, including health and beauty, retail, fitness, hemp and legal cannabis, and business services. With a background in litigation, Ms. Manning-Carroll regularly represents business owners and their companies in the resolution of business disputes in court. Manning Carroll Law’s estate planning practice includes advising individuals and married couples on asset protection solutions and end of life planning through the use of prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, wills, trusts, health care directives, and powers of attorney.
Allison recognizes that small businesses need legal support that is affordable and accessible. By founding a virtual law firm, Allison is able to keep expenses low and offer services to clients at an affordable rate. Manning Carroll Law provides several different pricing structures – subscription based, flat-fee, and hourly – so that her clients can receive quality legal services without worrying about paying a high hourly rate that can be unpredictable.
Allison received her law degree from the University of Tennessee College of Law after receiving her undergraduate degree from Tennessee State University. She is licensed to practice law in all Tennessee State Courts, the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Tennessee, and the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee. Allison is a member of the Tennessee Bar Association, Nashville Bar Association and Napier-Looby Bar Association. When she is not working with entrepreneurs to protect their legacy or volunteering in the community, Allison enjoys spending time with her family, reading, and watching documentaries.
