Kiernan Trebach’s expertise involves the duties of care owed to invitees, licensees and trespassers, as well as the critical issues of foreseeability, notice and damages in the context of premises liability claims. We recognize that tender issues are of paramount importance in these cases, often allowing us to invoke our client’s contractual language as a shield against liability. Our attorneys pursue these opportunities early and aggressively to avoid litigation and related expenses.
