Government Entity Defense

Indianapolis Defense Attorneys Represent Government Entities

Skilled counselors assist counties and municipalities throughout Indiana

Government entities have an enormous responsibility to serve citizens, but this mission can be threatened if lawsuits are not handled correctly. At Stephenson Morow & Semler, P.C., our Indianapolis lawyers have defended government clients in civil rights, employment and other types of lawsuits for more than 30 years. In many cases, we are retained as counsel by insurance carriers who are responsible for liability coverage, but we are also hired directly by public bodies. No matter what type of defense advocacy is required, our firm has an exceptional understanding of the laws and concerns that affect Indiana public officials and organizations.

Accomplished law firm handles a full range of litigation for public clients

Our firm represents counties, cities, school corporations and public officials in litigation relating to all types of matters including:

  • Civil rights claims — Skillful defense against civil rights allegations is essential to the efficient operation of government, law enforcement and other organizations. We conduct a thorough review of each case and develop the strongest possible defense on behalf of police officers, policymakers and others who have been sued under 42 U.S.C. §1983.
  • Tort litigation — When public bodies are targeted in premises liability cases, road conditions, or other tort lawsuits, we provide vigorous advocacy to challenge meritless claims and minimize legal exposure.
  • Employment issues — Governments are complex organizations and face the same type of workplace claims as other employers. However, special legal considerations and protections often apply to public employees. Our firm provides comprehensive defense in employment litigation and regulatory matters.

For these types of legal concerns and others, we have three decades of delivering strong results to the clients we serve.
