Forrest P. Merithew, Attorney at Law, practices construction law and contracts, as well as development, green building, zoning, and environmental consulting in Asheville, North Carolina and around Western NC.  

I grew up in a construction family and enjoy working with contractors and subcontractors on all the legal matters and issues they may face, as well as drafting premium contracts that allow them to do their work without worry of liability and payment.

North Carolina has a rich history in product design, development, manufacturing , and distribution.  In recent years this has evolved from old polluting textiles to modern green technologies, recreational and outdoor gear, and medical products and devices.  I have practiced with California's Strict Product Liability laws and theories of recovery, and represent and conuslt with a number of businesses and entrepreneurs in Western NC.  My business development practice and litigation experience allows me to effectively work with manufacturing and product businesses, as well as provide business and product liability defense.  http://fmerithewlaw.com/product-liability/

I've been researching and blogging regularly on matters important to the recreation industry (both in North Carolina and around the Country), including gear design, development, manufacturing, distribution, and product liability issues.  The summary of my recreation and gear representation and defense practice can be found here: http://fmerithewlaw.com/outdoor-recreation-gear-representation/
