Intentional Torts

Gordon & Silber frequently defends land owners and operators for the intentional or criminal acts of third-parties.

  • G&S fully utilizes the scope and power of CPLR Article 16 to pass liability to the alleged tortfeasor.
  • Where the intentional tort is committed by the assured’s employee, G&S works with the client to make a careful and deliberate early analysis whether to defend the employee or recast the litigation as one for negligent hiring, supervision and retention.
