Livingston Fidelity and Surety Attorneys
New Jersey Fidelity Bond Litigation Attorneys
In New Jersey, many elected officials and other public officials are required to be bonded. Public official bonds are intended to guarantee that a public official will faithfully perform his or her duties under the law. When public officials commit acts of corruption or otherwise abuse their office, fidelity and surety bonds represent a source of compensation for taxpayers.
Litigation surrounding these bonds is a particularly specialized area of law. If you are legal counsel for a municipal or county government, it is vital to work with a law firm that has handled numerous cases in this area. Sellar Richardson, P.C., is based in Livingston and represents municipalities, counties and local governments across New Jersey in fidelity and surety bond litigation. We offer experienced, dedicated representation in this field. In every claim, you can depend on our lawyers to make a complete investigation of the facts of the case. We will gather all evidence to support your claim.
Public officials must be bonded for each year they are in office. Further, the bonding company is required to pay damages in the amount of the bond. As a result, when public officials breach their trust, bonding companies face the possibility of substantial exposure. Our law firm also represents bonding companies in litigation. As a result, we have a complete perspective on these claims, and understand all of the potential defenses involved. Our law firm is also able to represent clients in litigation regarding employee dishonesty bonds and notary bonds.
