General liability

A duty of care is imposed on occupiers of private and public premises to ensure the safety of persons attending those premises. General liability law has also recently undergone significant changes in most jurisdictions. This has impacted all aspects of claims litigation, from determining quantum to assessing liability.
 
Our general liability team has the experience and resources to ensure that every claim is accurately resourced and that a resolution strategy is developed promptly.
