Our firm’s Labor Law team handles New York Labor Law personal injury at the highest level. With more than 25 lawyers, our team is one of the largest handling these claims in the region, and it has been serving contractors, owners, developers and utility companies in the region for more than 30 years.
Unparalleled Experience and Proven Results in Labor Law Litigation
Each attorney on our Labor Law team holds an OSHA 30 certificate and is highly experienced in handling all aspects of emergency accident investigations. We offer superior knowledge of the law, construction and design practice, technical issues, and insurance risk transfer issues, and we have fingertip familiarity with New York’s pro-plaintiff vicarious liability statutes and how to develop the facts from investigations to produce prompt and favorable outcomes. We have the technical knowledge to probe the areas that can establish defenses to vicarious liability, and we rely on creative, fresh approaches borne of experience to overcome the statutes and prevent summary judgment. We also have a team of renowned experts to help focus and present our clients’ cases at trial if necessary.
The Labor Law team has been instrumental in many key court decisions that have helped to firmly establish defenses in this challenging area. The team has handled thousands of construction lawsuits, and the team’s six partners have a combined 150 years of construction litigation experience and have taken more than 250 trials to verdict.
Full-Service Representation for Safety Planning, Emergency Response and Risk Transfer
In addition to representing clients in litigation, the attorneys on our Labor Law Team offer guidance with respect to construction pre-planning, project safety, emergency response and risk transfer. We dedicate an emergency response team to every project, and we work closely with our clients’ risk management and project safety teams to proactively address areas of potential exposure. We also provide training and advice on incident reporting techniques and investigations.
