Defending Your Business
Business and Property Owners Defense

For thirty years, the lawyers at Palmer & Barr have successfully defended slip-and-fall cases, homeowners’ claims, fire investigations and other premises liability matters. We advise local businesses and large corporations on risk management from training staff and reporting to incident prevention.  From large retailers to individual homeowners, we provide a litigation strategy specifically designed for the business and property owner. Initial reporting and investigation of each claim is vital to the formulation of a defense strategy and we have a team of attorneys who have forged decades of experience in working with insurers and property owners of all sizes to defend against unsupported claims or to help minimize the extent of every claim made. We frequently lecture to industry groups on issues facing business and property owners in this arena and work towards limiting claims on the ground level.
