Commercial Litigation

William Pollock is very responsive in returning calls and overall keeping the eye on the ball. When opportunities arise to resolve a case quickly and short circuit the litigation process, he brings them to our attention quickly. Conversely, when a case appears to be going south, he is just as quick to bring it to our attention so again we move forward to resolve. I would recommend him and his firm to anyone who is looking for a great team of attorneys.

For several weeks, I attempted to find an attorney in Fayetteville, NC to represent our neighborhood concerning a third party company from building a 100 Bed Federal Halfway House in our neighborhood. Unfortunately, the Attorneys I spoke with in Fayetteville said they could not represent us. I emailed Attorney Ben Kuhn explaining our case, not expecting a response. Within 24hrs Mr. Kuhn personally contacted me and took on our case which is still in litigation. Attorney Ben Kuhn and the associates with Ragdale Liggett's have done an amazing job fighting for our neighborhood.

We initially engaged Ragsdale Liggett several years ago on behalf of our long time client, based on a recommendation of a mutual colleague, to assist as local counsel on a large development project in North Carolina which closed in 2019. The firm (Eric Spence, specifically) did an excellent job on all aspects of the transaction, and was a pleasure to work with. We were delighted to have another opportunity to work with Ragsdale Liggett when our client pursued a second development deal in North Carolina, which closed in March, 2021. Each of these transactions had complex local issues, which Mr. Spence handled masterfully, efficiently, and with the utmost professionalism. All staff of the firm with whom I've interacted on these transactions exceeded my expectations and heightened my confidence that our client was in remarkably good hands. Of no small significance, the client has been exceptionally pleased with Mr. Spence's depth of knowledge, congeniality and response time, as well as the firm's cost-effectiveness of representation.
