General Liability Defense Law Firm Serving New York Clients Since 1970

Fumuso, Kelly, Swart, Farrell, Polin & Christesen LLP attorneys have successfully defended some of the largest not-for-profit agencies in New York, as well as the City of New York and other municipalities. The firm has gained extensive knowledge in a wide array of practice areas involving general liability defense.

Our diverse client base has provided us with opportunities to display unique expertise in defending claims involving:

  • Premises liability, including elevator accidents
  • School liability
  • Assault and battery, and sexual assaults
  • Civil rights violations
  • Subrogation, and insurance coverage disputes
  • Labor law
  • Construction accidents
  • Products liability
  • Automobile liability

Many of these claims were defended from Small Claims Court all the way to Appellate Divisions of the First and Second Departments, as well as the U.S. District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts.

At FKSFPC, we take pride in our ability to quickly identify cases with a potential for an adverse verdict. We move to mediate those matters, often below settlement value, resulting in considerable savings for our clients.

For cases that do not lend themselves to cost-effective resolutions, our trial lawyers have attained consistently excellent results, on both liability and damages.
