Legal Experts for Policyholders
For policyholders, we work with their insurance carriers to ensure that they receive the defense and/or indemnity to which they are entitled.
We will work with your retained counsel to oversee the litigation and protect your personal assets that may not be covered by the insurance policy due to limits or a carrier’s reservation of rights.
Because there are so many facets of commercial litigation, commercial liability defense demands aggressive trial work. Our decades of experience and successful track record in trial enable our team to achieve maximum effectiveness in representing clients in a variety of liability claims. Our commercial liability services include:
- Medical malpractice
- Contract litigation
- Partnership / corporate disputes
- Licensing investigations and actions
- Claims of business fraud or unfair business practices
- Claims of tortious interference with business relationships
We have worked with companies of all sizes and forms, and have represented a wide range of industries including nationally touring recording artists, Fortune 500 companies, airlines, locally owned private businesses, and many others.
Property owners and business establishments have a duty to provide a safe environment for individuals on their premises. Premises liability cases involve accidents that occur due to negligent maintenance, or unsafe and dangerous conditions upon property owned by someone other than the accident victim. Often these cases result in serious injury or death.
We have defended claims brought by tenants, employees, contractors, invited guests, trespassers, and many other individuals injured on our clients’ property. Our attorneys have defended cases involving injuries sustained from elevator falls, escalator impingements, uneven floor surfaces, poorly marked changes in elevation, slippery surfaces, broken sidewalks, broken steps, landscape edging, and more.
Among our many clients, we have successfully represented Fortune 500 companies, video stores, restaurants and boutique owners.
