Lewis Johs’s attorneys have extensive experience in defending commercial premises owners and security companies against claims for injuries that are alleged to have been sustained due to negligent security or the criminal acts of third parties. Our lawyers analyzes and interprets the indemnification provisions that are contained within security agreements on a case by case basis, tailoring the defense of the specific case at issue to the facts of the case and the needs of the client.
We provide an aggressive defense with the goal of obtaining a dismissal of the claims whenever possible. A Lewis Johs attorney achieved a landmark result in a New York Appellate Division, First Department case where a major banking institution was successfully defended in connection with claims of inadequate security at its ATM machines. That decision is often cited by other defense attorneys.
