Retail

The client list of SWEENEY & SHEEHAN has always included major retailers faced not only with premises liability claims, but also with security, false arrest and related claims. We understand the priorities and needs of our retail clients and have frequently worked with loss prevention and insurance professionals to implement policies and procedures to avoid any future liability. In addition, we have aggressively defended these claims to insure that the interests of our clients are protected from the frequently frivolous and meritless claims.
