General Negligence / Premises Liability / Retail

Smith Sovik regularly defends major retailers, corporations, universities, municipalities and individuals in general negligence, premises liability, wrongful death and defamation claims. We’ve worked with well-known clients such as Rite Aid, Price Chopper, Gander Mountain, Costco, Wal-Mart, Dollar General, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Autozone and Carrols Corporation.

In addition, Smith Sovik is approved panel counsel for The New York State Farm Bureau, and we’ve represented and won cases for farmers in a variety of disputes, all over the state.

Kristin Norfleet is our primary outside counsel for our general liability claims in New York because she understands our business objectives and uses her legal expertise to advocate for Carrols in a manner consistent with our objectives.  Kristin has an excellent base of legal and business knowledge, and she works well with opposing counsel, courts and our carriers. Kristin has provided Carrols with excellent legal representation and working with her is a pleasure.
