MSD represents owners of residential apartment complexes, commercial premises, restaurants and nightclubs in defending cases alleging that they failed to maintain a reasonable standard of security. We effectively defend such cases using thorough investigation, detailed preparation and skilled trial advocacy.
MSD has decades of experience defending owners of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, catering halls and other commercial premises in liquor liability cases. This area of law includes claims based on New York’s Dram Shop law, a statute that seeks to impose absolutely liability on establishments to compensate persons injured as a result of the illegal sale of alcoholic beverages. MSD has also set the standard in New York case law involving patron-to-patron assaults in bars and restaurants.
