Religious Organizations

Providing litigation and consulting services to religious organizations and their insurers has been a mainstay of SR&A’s practice since our inception. We understand the unique concerns often confronted by religious institutions, clergy, and lay leaders in resolving claims and disputes. Our experienced attorneys have vigorously defended lawsuits involving sexual misconduct, premises liability, employment practices, intra-institutional disputes, clergy malpractice and undue influence, motor vehicle accidents, and defamation, amongst others. Our guidance and risk management services extend to all of the activities and functions of religious organizations. We also assist insurers in mitigating their potential risk exposure by conducting and managing incident investigations arising from all aspects of operations including youth services, camps, retreats, sponsored programs and trips, property maintenance, and membership/governance disputes.
