Handling Difficult Cases in Difficult Venues

Eller Tonnsen Bach’s civil litigation practice focuses on cases involving serious personal injury and wrongful death cases. Many of our cases involve exposure to our clients exceeding $1M, allegations of corporate negligence, and the coordination of pre-suit catastrophic accident investigations. We often defend “target defendants” and can quickly provide advice on how the different jurisdictions in the Carolinas affect case valuation.

If a serious personal injury case must be tried, we have the experience, skill, and resources to try it. On smaller cases, we are often able to provide alternative fee arrangements and obtain early resolution.

Skilled and Experienced Construction Litigators

We represent contractors and their insurers in construction and insurance coverage litigation. We understand that the discovery process in construction litigation cases often lasts too long and costs too much. Eller Tonnsen Bach lawyers pride themselves on early case assessment and resolution. In multi-unit and multi-building cases, we quickly determine if our contractor is a large or small-player and tailor our discovery, motion practice, and ADR efforts accordingly.

Feel free to email Eric for a copy of ETB’s construction litigation metrics. We measure, track, and assess how long it takes us close files, our results, and how much it costs our clients.

Our commitment to personal service means that your case will not shuffled to multiple lawyers. Our construction litigators see the case through from beginning to end and assess resolution possibilities throughout the discovery process.
