General Liability & Commercial Litigation
HPM&B’s General Liability and Commercial Litigation Law Group serves as business and litigation counsel to a wide variety of clients, from individuals to Fortune 500 companies. Our work encompasses breach of contract and breach of non-competition covenant claims, leasing and real estate disputes, insurance coverage issues, actions for recovery of property, tortious interference with business relationships and fraudulent business practices, premises liability, automobile accident liability and construction litigation. We have many years of experience handling trials and appeals, mediations and arbitrations.
Over the years, we have represented a number of national retailers including Target, Staples, Starbucks, Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Reade, Tops Market, Wegman’s, Waldbaum’s/A&P, and Osram-Sylvania, pharmaceutical companies including Bayer Corporation, residential building owners, and smaller companies and individuals who are insured by carriers such as Chartis (formerly AIG), ACE, Arch, and CNA. In addition, our hospital clients regularly ask us to handle premises liability cases arising from incidents at their facilities. We have defended hundreds of slip-and-fall cases involving leaky machines, slippery floors, spilled coffee, defective sidewalks and uneven surfaces. Many cases have involved alleged labor law violations, premises security and negligent hiring and supervision.
Whether litigating in court or resolving disputes through alternative means, we strive to achieve superior results in the most cost-effective manner.
