Municipal Liability Defense
We have a long history of representing municipalities and provide defense against claims that come against public entities, their officers, and affiliated departments. Lawsuits can come against a public entity at any time and can range from flooding, failure to provide emergency protection, failure to remove snow and/or ice, road and other property defects, excessive force by law enforcement, civil rights violations, road design, tort and contract claims, employee discrimination, and many other types of public official liabilities.
More than half of our municipal liability cases are negotiated or mediated without the need for trial, keeping negative publicity at bay. Our expert municipal attorneys have extensive experience working with public officials and defending public entities and are familiar with the laws that govern them. We are proud to represent a number of municipal clients throughout the Midwest and have a proven track record of successfully defending municipal claims.
