Words that guide our practice
Professional Licensing & Government Oversight
Licensing boards for professionals establish high standards of competence, ethics, and conduct. Today’s professions are also increasingly subject to regulation from other governmental agencies who dictate standards for work and billing. When disputes about the application of those standards arise, we help out clients navigate complex administrative processes and can advocate for the professional’s position.
Professional Malpractice & Liability
For professionals, nothing is more important and reputation. Malpractice claims attack a professional’s reputation, questioning their competence and care. Our attorneys understand the legal, technical, and personal issues these claims raise, and we have the experience to advise, defend, and protect our clients against them.
Insurance Defense & Coverage Litigation
Whether your claim involves products liability, an auto or trucking accident, premises liability, catastrophic injury, or a coverage dispute, our attorneys have successfully investigated and litigated these types of cases throughout North Carolina. If insurance is involved, we have the experience and skill to zealously represent you throughout the litigation process.
Mediation & Alternative Dispute Resolution
Litigation can be stressful, complex, and expensive. Mediated settlement conferences offer parties the opportunity to reach a compromise voluntarily. Our mediators are experienced, creative, empathetic and practical, and we work hard to arrive at fair and appropriate compromises.
From the initial phases of contract to completed operations, our attorneys are as versed in the demands upon North Carolina developers, design professionals and contractor as they are in the courtroom. Our expertise in contract negotiation and drafting enables us to mitigate our client’s risk. Additionally, we investigate and defend contractors statewide in construction defect claims, workplace accidents, and wrongful death claims.
Commercial & Business Litigation
Litigation is part of today’s economy. Whether your business is pursuing claims or defending against them, our experienced attorneys will provide innovative solutions to achieve your goals in a cost effective manner.
