Government Liability Claims

The attorneys at Conroy Simberg handle a diverse range of government liability claims. We advise and counsel clients on civil rights issues and defend claims for violations of federal and state civil rights acts. We regularly assist and represent governmental entities, employers and corporations in administrative hearings before the State of Florida Human Rights Commission, Public Employee Relations Commission and Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. We have also defended police departments and offices in false arrest, excessive force, and high speed pursuit cases.

The governmental liability lawyers at our firm are also actively involved in counseling and representing clients in a wide range of land use matters, including defending against claims of inverse condemnation, zoning violations and sovereign immunity.

We have substantial experience in all types of employment and personnel related matters and regularly represent governmental entities in workers’ compensation claims, discrimination cases and labor contract negotiations and disputes. Our governmental liability attorneys also counsel public entities and officials on Florida’s Sunshine and Public Records Laws.

Reaching Creative and Economical Resolutions

We strive to avoid the time and costs associated with litigation by negotiating creative and economical resolutions for our clients. When beneficial, we use alternative dispute resolution methods, including mediation and arbitration, to avoid trial.

When conflicts cannot be resolved in this manner and litigation becomes necessary, our governmental liability lawyers aggressively defend clients at all stages of the state and federal trial and appellate court processes. We work side by side with clients to investigate claims and prepare the strongest defense possible, while keeping clients informed throughout the litigation process, ensuring that they understand all of the laws, regulations and legal precedents that may impact their case.

Conroy Simberg is proud of its reputation for delivering superior legal services to governmental agencies and officials. The lawyers in our governmental liability practice have decades of experience working with government agencies, boards, and councils and understand the unique body of laws and procedures applicable to these entities. Our attorneys use this knowledge to develop strategies and solutions that resolve cases quickly and efficiently while achieving the important objectives of our public sector clients.
