How do you limit liability exposure? How do you avoid legal actions against you or your business? If you’re already facing litigation, how do you produce a favorable outcome, whether you settle it, fight it or resolve it through mediation or arbitration? When it comes to general litigation matters, we can help you answer these and other important questions.
Among the most frequent types of cases we handle relate to business disputes, construction litigation, real estate-related matters, insurance coverage and defense, professional negligence and employment law, but we can represent you in a variety of general litigation matters.
We believe that being proactive and forward-thinking is often the best approach when it comes to avoiding litigation. We have worked especially closely with our construction and corporate clients in the creation of policies, procedures and systems that are designed to help prevent future legal problems. These measures can take a variety of forms, including contract review, modification and negotiation, as well as the ensuring of compliance with applicable laws and regulations.
A Word About Complex Litigation
The term complex litigation is usually applied to big, complicated cases that involve multiple parties, large dollar amounts or elaborate legal theories. Our attorneys have tried a number of complex litigation matters in both the state and federal courts – cases involving construction matters, insurance coverage issues and difficult corporate questions. Our attorneys have also taken these cases to the South Carolina Court of Appeals and South Carolina Supreme Court, whether to correct an error of law made at the trial or to uphold a correct ruling.
Alternatives to Litigation
We realize that taking a case to trial is not the only option available but rather one of many options along the litigation path. We take the time to weigh all strategies available and communicate those strategies to you throughout the process. Even in cases where settlement may be the best strategy, we prepare the case for trial, only repositioning the case for settlement as needed. We can also explore a number of mediation and arbitration options when and where it makes sense. Contact us today to learn more.
