Premises Liability

Yankwitt LLP’s Premises Liability practice defends a broad array of businesses in premises liability litigation throughout New York and New Jersey. We represent national hospitality groups, regional restaurant chains and stand-alone operations, facing claims from minor theft of property to million-dollar personal injury matters.

Yankwitt LLP attorneys are aggressive trial lawyers and creative problem solvers, who utilize that experience to achieve optimal results for our clients. We always work to maximize our clients’ desired outcomes by providing personalized service and tailoring litigation plans to meet each client’s specific needs and goals. We focus on targeted and streamlined discovery practices and emphasize dispositive motion practice, with the objective of achieving the best settlement – when settlement is in the client’s best interest – or a favorable trial outcome. Given our wealth of premises liability defense experience, we are well positioned to counsel our clients in making the critical decision of when to take a case to verdict or when to settle before trial.

We frequently pursue alternative dispute resolution paths in premises liability cases and have obtained great success at court-sanctioned settlement conferences, private and court ordered mediations, and binding arbitration. If settlement is not possible, however, the powerhouse attorneys at Yankwitt LLP stand ready to take cases to trial and try numerous premises liability cases in New York and New Jersey each year.

No matter which path is chosen for our clients’ premises liability cases, Yankwitt LLP always emphasizes smart, lean staffing and cost-effective litigation strategies, and strives to foster attorney-client relationships founded on honesty, transparency, and open and frequent communication.
