Because action and activity often involves danger and risk . . .

At AMWT&C, we have successfully defended claims and lawsuits by injured participants and spectators in high-risk sports, recreation and leisure activities for over 35 years. Whether it’s rock climbing, go-kart racing, horseback riding or paintball games, you can count on our dedicated attorneys to aggressively defend individuals, teams, corporations, venues, and facilities.

AMWT&C is the pre-eminent law firm in the United States in automobile and motorcycle racing and public recreational facility litigation. But we’re not just about racing. We represent a wide array of clients in other sports, leisure, and recreation activities, product liability, premises and general liability litigation. We defend insured entities and individuals both independently and through their insurance carriers.

We have unparalleled expertise in the issues of waiver and release, express assumption of risk, and indemnity, as well as in assumption of the risk and comparative fault issues. In fact, AMWT&C has played a leading role in the development of waiver and release, express assumption of the risk, and indemnity agreements in the motorsports area and other recreational sports both in California and nationally. These agreements have been routinely upheld in courts of varying levels and jurisdictions, helping to create the industry standard for high-risk sports.

We understand the costs of litigation and going to trial. That’s one of the reasons why we focus on providing pre-litigation liability assessment and risk management consultations for our clients. Anticipating, preventing, and resolving potential liabilities and exposures is our goal. We’ll give you legal opinions on your insurance coverage from a general liability perspective, and provide case supervision and monitoring, along with defense coordination on a nation-wide basis. We offer up to date legal alerts and newsletters, and we schedule lectures and instructional seminars to further prepare our clients for the realities of the legal system.

Our unique expertise also allows us to provide risk management assessment and contract evaluation for the entertainment industry in the realm of reality television programming, an area that combines unscripted sports and recreation activities within the traditional entertainment industry format. We also have an active insurance liability coverage practice.
