In 1948 he was partner at Méndez, Grillasca, Nolla, Galib & Márquez.  This partnership developed in 1952 into a restructured company known as Nolla, Galib & Co., which at the time was composed of Miguel Nolla, Jacinto Galib and Joaquín Márquez.  At a later time Miguel J. Nolla became principal and owner of the company now known as NOGAMA CONSTRUCTION CORP.
