Commercial General Liability
As business transactional and trial lawyers, BPH has considerable commercial general liability experience, representing companies in court on both the plaintiff and the defense side of all types of matters.
Much of the firm’s work in this sector is related to the hospitality industry, and our attorneys have worked with individual hotels and resorts as well as regional chains on litigation matters such as catastrophic personal injury, construction defect and water damage.
Our thorough understanding of the hospitality industry in tandem with our knowledge of related California law allows us to protect our clients’ businesses through employee training and working directly with them to ensure guest safety. In this area of law, we have worked with owners and managers of restaurants and nightclubs, and our varied liability work in this area includes matters related to crowd control, assault and battery, false arrest and false imprisonment, and food product.
In addition to hotels, restaurants, nightclubs and others in the hospitality industry, our experience includes significant work with companies that own, manage and operate sports stadiums, golf courses, shopping malls, theaters, casinos and spas. We have also handled claims related to facility operations with stores and retail chains, gas stations, parking lots and structures, and automobile dealerships. BPH’s commercial general liability practice also includes common carrier and bailee/bailor liability and failure to maintain lateral/subjacent support. Our counsel in all areas of general commercial liability has helped companies minimize their risk in many areas, and resolve disputes smoothly and efficiently whenever they arise, enabling our clients to continue to operate and manage their businesses as seamlessly as possible.
