Litigation Overview: Stites & Harbison’s regional and national litigation practice has grown over the years to occupy a broad platform founded on bet-the-company litigation. The firm’s sizable Business Litigation practice focuses on class actions (often insurers, financial institutions, and manufacturers), financial services litigation (consumer services, mortgages, and banking and trust litigation), corporate litigation (D&O, shareholder suits, and business deals), government and regulatory litigation (utilities, environmental, and procurement), and professional liability (accountants, architects, agents, and attorneys). The Torts and Insurance (TIPs) group, the firm’s powerhouse legacy practice, maintains a regional and national practice in product liability litigation, particularly medical device and pharmaceutical actions – in addition to a broad-based personal injury client base. The Construction Litigation team boasts a regional and national practice, and the Creditors’ Rights litigation practice is healthy and vibrant.
