Warren F. Sperling chairs the firm’s Construction Litigation and Premises Liability Department. The New Jersey group is headed by Michael Dolich. This practice group handles premises liability, construction and building collapse and numerous other types of cases arising most often under commercial general liability and homeowner policies. Several of our attorneys who practice in this group are OSHA 10 certified.
In premises liability cases handled by the firm, the team utilizes early, intensive discovery fashioned for the particular case, surveillance when appropriate, site photographs and inspections and procedural motions to maximize the client's defense. All of these efforts are designed to permit the client to determine as quickly as possible whether the claim should be defended or settled and the value of the claim.
Under the umbrella of general liability claims, the firm has handled a variety of other unusual matters as well. The firm has represented several clergy accused in civil cases of sexual assaults against minors. The firm has also defended a number of celebrities as well as private individuals against claims of libel, slander, defamation and other torts.
