There seems to be no end in sight to the onslaught of inflated damages 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 on-set, we direct focused, tailored, surgical discovery and investigation to get the real, critical information you need to promptly evaluate each matter re both liability and damages. Then, we collaborate to select closure or litigation strategies.

At Tharpe & Howell, our litigation expertise and success stretches across a broad array of matters and industries – covering everything from commercial and residential premises liability, 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 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.

No matter the area, we have a team of specialists ready to work with you to develop and implement aggressive strategies to achieve the result you want, cost-effectively, and on-time. Our Firm’s litigators have effectively handled thousands of claims, complex and straightforward, from inception through trial and on appeal. With more than 55 attorneys firm-wide, we are your high quality and experienced, low-cost alternative to over-priced, ineffective law firms.
