Based on years of conducting insurance defense litigation, we are experienced in all matters relating to civil liability involving municipalities. This includes matters which come before state and federal courts as well as administrative forums such as the Freedom of Information Commission, the Department of Environmental Protection, the Workers’ Compensation Commission, and the Statewide Grievance Committee.

In addition to offering general counsel to municipalities, the firm is consistently retained by municipal insurers to represent public officials, board and commission members, and police departments in the defense of civil lawsuits and claims.

Attorneys at Hassett & George possess the requisite knowledge and experience to capably handle insurance coverage issues. The firm is often asked to provide coverage opinions relating to insurance contracts – including municipal insurance coverage and claims against town personnel and on issues involving governmental immunity, ordinance interpretation, disclosure of public information, and statutory construction.

Our attorneys work with insurance adjusters on a daily basis, and we have successfully litigated constitutional claims regarding the validity of municipal zoning regulations. We are regularly called upon to draft and review contracts regarding construction, land use, and commercial transactions.

The firm also has experience in drafting, revising and interpreting bylaws, charters, and statutes for various institutional clients and organizations – which are crucial when working as legal counsel for boards or other entities. Our clients also benefit from the vast knowledge our attorneys possess regarding the Freedom of Information Act.
