OUR FOUNDATION IS IN CONSTRUCTION
Founding partner, Steve Pharr, has had a lifelong interest in architecture and buildings, an interest that developed especially during a year of graduate study in Montpellier, France. Academic study was augmented by summer jobs with construction companies and building component manufacturers.
Our work in construction law catapulted forward in 1996 when problems with artificial stucco (EIFS) were discovered. Hundreds of homes in Wilmington, North Carolina were affected, eventually leading to lawsuits across the Southeast. In the ensuing period, our team has handled hundreds of residential and commercial construction lawsuits. We have successfully defended window manufacturers in that litigation and became national counsel for a number of window manufacturers, ultimately coordinating litigation in over 30 states.Our focus on construction and commercial litigation sends us out across all of North Carolina and South Carolina and much of the eastern half of the United States.
