Lew Glenn focuses his practice on litigation, particularly real estate and other commercial matters, catastrophic personal injury defense, employment (including administrative agency proceedings), and insurance coverage disputes. He is also a North Carolina Dispute Resolution Committee Certified Superior Court Mediator and acts as both a neutral evaluator and arbitrator.
Lew likes to solve problems, and he gets the most satisfaction out of resolving a client’s litigation issue because it relieves so much stress for the client. There are often overlooked opportunities for creative solutions in litigation, and he works hard to develop these solutions when they serve the interests of his clients.
As litigation is an expensive and stressful process, Lew keeps both the cost and stress level down for his clients, and he never loses sight of the business goals and issues that are associated with the dispute. Litigation should be conducted with an objective in mind – in the business context, it is simply continued negotiation in a different framework with different rules. Lew’s priority is to always resolve disputes to allow the client to move on with its profitable business endeavors. He listens carefully, not only to the client’s perspective on the facts of a dispute but also to the client’s goals and desired outcomes in the matter. Those goals and outcomes inform his decision-making at every step of the litigation process and are always front and center in his mind as he looks to craft solutions to the problem at hand.
