General Civil Litigation/Premises Liability


The underlying philosophy upon which Clinton & Clinton was founded and which continues to drive our practice of law is that zealous advocacy and quality representation need not be divorced from common sense and cost efficiency. It is this philosophy that has fostered long term relationship with our clients. But regardless of whether the client is new or established, large or small, it is always our goal to defend claims with thoughtful and innovative methods, focusing on cost efficient resolution of each claim.

C&C has a strong tradition in insurance defense, with many of its attorneys having worked for large insurance defense firms throughout California. Whether the client be self-insured or commercially-insured, we have a vast amount of experience in representing a wide range of general liability concerns for, among others, government entities, landowners, management companies, manufacturers, national retailers, and supermarkets in lawsuits alleging construction defects, automobile liability, negligence, premises liability, professional liability, products liability, and environmental
liability to list just a few.

We have considerable experience in defending against claims of unsafe conditions, failure to exercise reasonable care, and other claims of general negligence. Through our knowledge of the rules of litigation and our understanding of the applicable affirmative defenses, we are able to discover and exploit the weaknesses in our adversaries case so as to achieve the best possible results for our clients. With regard to general premises liability, our belief is that many of such cases that involve injuries arising not only from the condition of the property itself, but also from dangerous or nearby criminal activity, can and should be won at the law and motion stage of litigation, preferably a motion for summary judgment. Clinton & Clinton has a glowing track record and a fast growing reputation in the legal community of California for developing successful motion work, focusing on such defenses as waiver and release, assumption of the risk, lack of causation and lack of duty of care.

Many larger companies are resorting more and more to Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). Clinton & Clinton recognizes that arbitration and mediation are often a better approach for a client than the traditional litigation process. The firm believes that to achieve the financial goals and case objectives our clients, it is necessary to discuss the various ADR options with each client prior to embarking on the usual litigation path of discovery and trial. The firm has represented numerous clients in more than 250 arbitration and mediation hearings, and such extensive experience has made us highly capable advocates for our clients regardless of the chosen ADR process.
