Government Liability

Public entities face distinct and challenging legal issues.

Our Governmental Liability Group represents and advises a variety of public entities, including cities, townships, school districts, counties and cooperatives, as well as the selfinsurance trusts and administrators working with them. We strategize with our clients to successfully counsel and defend governmental liability issues, including civil rights and constitutional issues, immunity and statutory defenses, police and excessive force claims, liquor liability, construction projects, bonding and insurance matters, land use and zoning issues, facilities management, indoor air quality and environmental issues, collective bargaining and contract negotiations, open meeting, data practice and compliance issues, and employment law.

We work with risk managers to identify problems and develop strategies to control and avoid potential claims. Attorneys in our Governmental Liability Group are ready to answer questions and promptly evaluation your situation. Small questions answered early can avoid big problems later.
