Focus Areas

Civil litigation deals with an individual or business filing a suit against another individual or business. These are civil matters that can be solved in court or through mediation and arbitration. Some examples of civil litigation cases include a contract dispute between businesses or corporations or situations dealing with relationships between people, such as a marriage.

We routinely handle lawsuits involving business torts, employment discrimination, construction, voting rights, intellectual property, contracts, products liability, professional negligence, and the like.  In state court or federal court, with and without juries, before administrative boards, at trial and on appeal, Tharrington Smith represents cases one client at a time. Often our expertise is best applied in keeping clients out of court.  To that end, our lawyers draft contracts, develop policies and procedures, and negotiate the resolution of disputes before litigation arises.

Tharrington Smith has a number of lawyers who have appeared in all levels of court, in North Carolina and elsewhere.  They are comfortable in the courtroom but also know when to seek an alternate solution.

  • Creditors Rights & Collections Law
  • Election Law & Redistricting

  • Estate & Trust Litigation
