General Liability and Casualty Defense

Whatever the claim, we handle cases from inception to conclusion and develop litigation strategies that focus on resolution – effectively and efficiently achieving our clients’ goals. Our attorneys guide clients through the distinct legal frameworks in which they operate, subject to uncertainties of market fluctuations, regulatory changes, and individual actors. We defend insureds, insurance companies, and self-insured entities in the private and public sectors. Our clients hail from a wide range of industries – retail, hospitality, transportation, construction, and more – and we address incidents and concerns unique to each one. At the same time, our team collaborates with each other and our clients across jurisdictions and industries, constantly maintaining open and meaningful lines of communication.

Our attorneys are active members and leaders of organizations, including the Claims Litigation Management Alliance, Defense Research Institute, Federation of Defense and Corporate Counsel, National Retail and Restaurant Defense Associations, and more. Among our attorneys are current and former chairs and presidents of those associations.

With offices across the country, Chartwell Law has developed unique capabilities to handle multi-state and multi-jurisdictional claims and manage claims filed in states outside of our clients’ brick-and-mortar locations. Sometimes, settlement and alternative dispute resolution may be the best path forward, and we recommend those directions when they serve our clients’ interests. When litigation cannot be avoided, we are well-equipped and determined to zealously defend our clients in state and federal courts nationwide.
