Commercial Litigation

Sowell Gray Robinson’s business litigators handle a wide variety of business issues, focusing both on complex commercial litigation and resolution of commercial disputes. Our experience ranges from securities litigation, banking and financial services litigation, class actions, intellectual property, insurance disputes, business torts, real property and title insurance, to all types of commercial disputes and corporate counseling. We regularly litigate in all state and federal courts in South Carolina.  Our experience as both corporate plaintiff’s counsel and defendant corporation counsel gives us the necessary perspective to defend and pursue cases.

We recognize that each lawsuit is unique and design an individually tailored plan for each case. Our approach is business-like and efficient as we prepare and try or resolve cases.  If consistent with our clients’ goals, we look for opportunities to resolve matters at early stages and, if possible, to incorporate win-win business solutions. Because much of complex commercial litigation can be costly, our goal is to create a strategy with the client to recognize the claims that can be defeated early and assist our clients in deciding how to prioritize resources.

While we know that the majority of cases are ultimately settled, we pride ourselves on our courtroom experience.  Our lawyers defended one of the longest non-jury trials in South Carolina history and have handled a variety of jury trials to verdict.  As is often critical in complex business cases, we are experienced in handling the collection, organization, and production of documents on a large scale. We recognize the effectiveness of trial preparation and presentation technology and know how and when to incorporate it in our strategy.  We staff our matters with experienced lawyers who know the legal or industry subject matter of the case and support our lawyers with competent support personnel.

Our business litigators have been widely recognized. In addition to active memberships in a range of national and local professional organizations and bar associations, our lawyers have been regularly recognized by The Best Lawyers in America, Chambers USA America’s Leading Lawyers for Business, the American College of Trial Lawyers, the American Board of Trial Advocates, and South Carolina Super Lawyers.
