Retail businesses face a host of challenges and legal issues.

Our Retail litigation team assists in navigating a variety of laws and regulations to allow you to focus on your business. Drawing a multi-disciplinary team from various departments within Rose Law Group pc, we can assist you in negotiating leases, performing CAM reconciliations, defending financial audits under a lease, addressing zoning issues affected your business, and navigating the array of state and federal regulations of your business.

Our litigation department is well suited to defending claims against retailers with an eye toward cost-effective resolutions of cases. Our aggressive comparative fault arguments and early case evaluation and planning has led to a series of cost-effective victories. Because cost of defense is often a consideration for retailers, successful outcomes often involve quick resolutions. We have resolved many cases for less than the special damages sought and before much money has been spent in defending the claim, including:

  • Settlement of a claim against a national retailer for less than half of the past medical specials and without any consideration for the alleged future medical specials. The confidential settlement cost the retailer less than half of the cost of defending the probable liability case to trial.
  • Settlement of a questionable liability case against an international retailer for less than half of the value reserved and less than a third of the plaintiff’s alleged medical damages. Early settlement in the case was facilitated by an aggressive comparative fault argument.
  • Settlement of an auto liability claim for less than the medical specials based upon an early defense expert opinion calling into doubt the post-accident treatment and the cost thereof.

Retailers are also frequent targets of Americans with Disabilities Act lawsuits and our litigation team is well prepared to represent you if you are sued and assist you in avoiding these suits.
