Civil Litigation

There seems to be no end in sight to the onslaught of inflated damage claims being asserted by plaintiffs’ attorneys against all sectors of the business industry today.  Now more than ever, the key to protecting your bottom-line is evaluating, resolving, and “triaging” these claims quickly, efficiently and economically.

For more than 40 years, Tharpe & Howell, LLP, has worked closely with businesses, risk managers, insurers and their insureds to meet this challenge.  From onset, we direct focused, tailored, surgical discovery and investigation to get the real, critical information our clients need to promptly evaluate liability and damages.  Then, we collaborate to select closure or litigation strategies.

Our litigation expertise and success stretch across a broad array of matters and industries – covering everything from commercial and residential premises liability and personal injury, wrongful eviction, mold allegations, and labor and employment law, to intentional torts such as assault, battery and defamation, business litigation, malicious prosecution, complex catastrophic injury cases and product liability claims.  In addition to our work with well-known insurance carriers and their insureds, we also represent numerous self-insured entities such as big box stores, school districts, international and national hotel and restaurant groups, commercial transportation companies, home improvement centers and grocery stores, shopping centers and malls, and commercial and residential property owners.  This broad spectrum of client knowledge and experience helps us continually bring new perspectives and strategic insight to each case handled by our Firm.
