    • Loan negotiations and documentation

    We also advise real estate companies on a range of day-to-day and strategic business issues involving:

Our Services

Through a broad range of legal disciplines, Evans & Dixon’s highly skilled attorneys leverage their experience and expertise in the following practice areas to meet client objectives:

Insurance Defense

Our civil litigation team offers excellent case management experience, superior advocacy skills and deep knowledge of emerging legal and regulatory changes that can affect the outcome of a dispute.

Business Litigation

When it comes to business litigation, the name speaks for itself: commercial and legal issues are two sides of the same coin.

Collections

Achieving the maximum returns on outstanding debts while minimizing potential risks requires persuasive skill, tenacity and a clear understanding of debt-related regulatory requirements.

Workers' Compensation Defense

At Evans & Dixon, we made our name on the strength of our workers’ compensation and employer liability practice.

Labor & Employment Law

From the executive suite to the factory floor, businesses are only as good as their people. It’s a simple formula — but one that has become increasingly complicated by a diverse, highly mobile workforce and a complex web of federal, state and local regulations.

Healthcare

The U.S. healthcare industry is in the midst of a rapid, major transition from fee-for-service models to a performance- and value-based payment system.

Intellectual Property

In today’s economy, every business owns creative assets that, at minimum, require protection and, at best, can be exploited to realize their full market value.
