Attorney Speaking With Client

General Liability Practice

Some of the largest retail companies in the world turn to Stagg Wabnik Law Group to defend them in cases involving on-site incidents and defamation claims. We represent many self-insured companies and work with most of the nation's third-party administrators. We also represent many prominent insurance companies, collaborating with in-house counsel, paralegals, and adjusters. Our attorneys have lectured widely before representative organizations such as the International Council of Shopping Centers. They regularly travel throughout the country to give seminars on gathering and preserving evidence and false arrest to our clients and third-party administrators. We recognize that our general liability clients seek cost-effective representation.


In this regard, our attorneys were one of the first metropolitan firms to utilize the federal removal procedure to minimize client exposure and expedite case resolution. We are flattered that many other attorneys use this procedure on behalf of their clients. We view this as a testament to our leadership and creativity in this practice area.
