Local government immunity and liability under case law and statutory law have had a long and convoluted history in New Hampshire.

This workshop will provide a brief overview of municipal immunity and liability to set the stage for an in-depth discussion of the current law.
Presenters include NHMA Attorneys and the following experienced municipal defense counsel: Corey Belobrow of Maggiotto, Belebrow, Feeney & Fraas, PLLC; Samantha Elliott of Gallagher, Callahan and Gartrell; and John Curran of Curtin, Murphy, and O’Reilly.
