Hospitality And Retail
By being open to the public, retail businesses have greater exposure to personal injury litigation. In fact, while increased sales means business growth, it also means increased risk of injury and litigation. For decades, we have represented both local and national businesses in the retail and hospitality industry and understand the attendant legal implications some of which are low risk, while others are potentially devastating. Our attorneys have handled claims related to property defects, premises liability, including trip and falls, negligent security, third party criminal liability, falling merchandise, equipment failure, and natural disasters.
We aggressively defend our clients from institution of suit through trial. We conduct thorough investigations at the outset to expose potentially fraudulent claims, and pursue tender of the claim if possible and appropriate. Our strong knowledge of the law and thorough pre-trial discovery has earned us great success in obtaining summary dismissal of these claims. In addition, we offer risk management services that includes policy review and implementation as well as training. An up to date knowledge of merchant liability rulings helps us provide our clients with an edge by keeping litigation costs down and avoiding litigation altogether.
