Retail and Premises Liability

The Klinedinst Retail and Premises Liability group is comprised of attorneys from multiple practice areas, assembled to meet the diverse needs of major retailers and entertainment facilities, small business owners, grocery chains, restaurants, and public storefronts.

Our attorneys help clients face challenges in an ever-changing regulatory environment. From compliance with Americans with Disabilities Act statutes, to state and local employment regulations, the team at Klinedinst helps retail clients stay ahead of the regulatory curve. Klinedinst also helps retailers with legal issues arising from labor relations, including collective bargaining agreements and work stoppages.

Today’s retailers face significant exposure with personal injury and tort litigation. Klinedinst works with retailers and their carriers to defend slip/trip and fall suits, allegation of inadequate security cases, as well as other premises liability and injury claims.

Klinedinst’s Retail and Premises Liability Defense group also helps defend retailers against false imprisonment claims, arising primarily out of shoplifting. The group also handles claims of abuse made by disruptive customers seeking remuneration, as well as allegations of assault made while on premises by both employees and unrelated third parties.

Retailers that carry thousands of products frequently find themselves subject to product liability litigation involving the products they sell, from allegedly defective supplements to allegations of defective strollers and toy products.

The firm’s attorneys have worked with a wide range of clients on their retail and premises liability defense needs, from small business to Fortune 50 companies. For clients looking for broad experience in a wide range of backgrounds, the Retail and Premises Liability group at Klinedinst has much to offer.
