We’ve handled partnership disputes, contract disputes, general construction cases, dissolution matters, collection, antitrust, and non-compete cases, just to name a few. Our landmark litigation case is Kirby v. North Carolina Department of Transportation.  We’ve have a plethora of trials under our belts. We argued motions and appeals. Our appellate representation includes 4th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals, North Carolina Supreme Court and Court of Appeals, and the Supreme Court of Canada.
