Vertical Transportation

Murchison & Cumming's Vertical Transportation practice group specializes in the defense of product liability/negligence cases and related indemnity and contract disputes arising out of elevator and escalator personal injury and commercial litigation. Chaired by Senior Partner Guy R. Gruppie, the team has aggressively and successfully handled such cases for more than 25 years for several leading elevator and escalator manufacturers and maintenance companies, equipment component makers, and property owners/property managers of major commercial buildings, public transportation sites and nationally known sports, entertainment and retail venues through out California and Nevada. The lawyers have significant experience in all aspects of vertical transportation litigation, developed over many years of achieving outstanding case results for a broad spectrum of industry clients. The team's technical and legal expertise, developed in part by an active role in industry groups such as the National Association of Elevator Contractors (NAEC) and Elevator Industry Group (EIG), contribute to the quick and efficient identification of key issues, selecting where necessary the right consultants/expert witnesses and recommending and executing the best strategies so as to maximize case results. This philosophy has helped Murchison & Cumming develop its reputation as a "go to" law firm for elevator and escalator litigation.
