Commercial Litigation

Our Approach to Business Disputes

Litigation is not necessarily a “business strategy.” However, successful businesses and their owners are often faced with the decision to assert their rights when they have been wronged or defend themselves against claims from competitors, creditors and vendors. With a practice equally dedicated to business litigation and business transactions, Bray & Long, PLLC provides an integrated approach to resolving unique and multi-faceted business disputes. Our diverse industry experience, coupled with the commitment to our clients to provide ongoing and proactive advice, allows us to anticipate issues and address them before they become a problem or distraction.

Depth of Experience

Our attorneys have represented individuals and corporations in matters pending before the Superior Court of North Carolina, the Court of Common Pleas in South Carolina, the North Carolina Business Court, U.S. District courts throughout both Carolinas and arbitration through the American Arbitration Association. In addition, our motions and alternative dispute resolution practice areas are designed and structured to ensure that, if there exists an alternative to trial, it is presented to the client as early as possible in the litigation process.

In addition, Bray & Long routinely handles disputes between and among business owners. Whether referred to as “business break-ups” or “corporate divorces,” these can be among the most contentious of any disputes in the world of business. Our attorneys have worked on behalf of the remaining business, and on behalf of the departing partner, in a multitude of business break-ups since our inception.

Finally, we represent individuals and small to mid-sized business from various industries, including commercial and residential construction, financial services, professional services, manufacturing, marketing and professional sports. Regardless of the industry, we have the experience and skills necessary to meet your business needs.
