Litigation

Litigation

Impossible cases don’t scare us.

We have handled complex lawsuits involving millions of dollars representing people and businesses who have been seriously injured.  In a wide range of difficult and contentious disputes, we have helped individual and business clients recover their losses and protect their rights.

 

We have been recognized by other lawyers as being among the best in the state in surveys such as Super Lawyers and the Legal Elite.

 

We try to negotiate resolutions that protect our client’s interests without a trial.  We work with our clients to find pricing and funding solutions that make sense.  But we are always ready to fight aggressively in court or arbitration to achieve success.

Complex
Litigation

 

We have brought, and defended, commercial disputes involving  contract disputes and business torts, construction law, securities, lender liability, real estate, fraud, corporate and LLC disputes, dissolutions, intellectual property, and unfair trade practice cases. We have handled issues and disputes arising under the Uniform Commercial Code and the Sherman Antitrust Act.

 

Because we are trial lawyers and will not hesitate to take a case to trial if necessary, we have also represented injured people in wrongful death or other tort claims.

 

Financial & Bankruptcy Litigation

 

We are a boutique firm with a niche practice focused on fraud and unfair trade practices.  Our firm has successfully represented investors, businesses and consumers who have been harmed by the unfair, fraudulent, deceptive or predatory conduct or banks and other large corporations.

 

Sometimes lawsuits arise in the context of a bankruptcy.  Our unique skill set allows us to represent both debtors and creditors in all kinds of litigation and contested matters.  Jim White is one of the few lawyers in North Carolina who has been recognized as being among the top litigation attorneys and bankruptcy attorneys in the state.

 

 

Class actions &
Group Lawsuits

 

Class actions and group lawsuits can address fraud and unfair practices more effectively in a single case when it simply would not be cost-effective for one person to bring suit.

 

In some cases it is more effective if a group of consumers, or a class of consumers, can attack the conduct in one lawsuit. Class actions and group lawsuits can address fraud and unfair practices more effectively in a single case when it simply would not be cost-effective for one person to bring suit.  Our firm handles a limited number of class actions and group lawsuits as part of our mission to have a distinctive, lasting and substantial impact on consumers.
