Practice/Industry Group Overview

The foundation of our firm has been the defense of insureds, insurers and self-insured entities in connection with various General Liability matters. Our experience in this area ranges from the proverbial “red car/blue car” and “grape on the floor” cases to false arrests; assault and battery; defamation; premises and products liability; property damage and lead paint poisoning cases. The General Liability Practice Group also includes the defense of insurers in uninsured and underinsured motorists claims, which often have exposure or carriers into the millions of dollars.

General Liability cases are litigated by experienced attorneys in each of our offices, covering Pennsylvania, Maryland and the District of Columbia. The General Liability Practice Group partners and senior associates are seasoned and well respected trial attorneys who have broad trial experience in both federal and state courts in all three states. Other matters are decided by arbitration or resolved through mediation, settlement or ADR.

Our attorneys speak regularly to private clients and trade groups on topics varied as premises liability, limited tort, expert issues, handling catastrophic cases and the ever-changing law of uninsured/underinsured motorists claims.

We would welcome the opportunity to work with you in handling your General Liability litigation and we are available to give presentations or conduct training seminars on various General Liability topics.
