Worker’s compensation claims and other employee-related legal disputes are a drain on resources. They take time, are expensive, and can be challenging to deal with – especially when an ardent plaintiff’s attorney is on the other side. No one likes to deal with them.
No one, except for us.
At Levy, Thompson, Sibley & Hand, LLC, we have more than 75 years of experience representing the interests of employers and insurance companies. If your company is facing issues with workers’ compensation, premises liability, or equal opportunity claims, we can help.
As a defense firm that exclusively represents employers and insurance companies, we get to know our clients and develop long-term relationships that allow us to more effectively and efficiently meet their needs. In addition to providing legal representation in administrative hearings, litigation, and alternative dispute resolution proceedings, we also assist our clients in developing strategies, policies and procedures for mitigating their exposure to liability.

Another significant portion of our practice focuses on representing companies in insurance coverage litigation. Here too, we focus exclusively on defense. Our attorneys regularly represent self-insured organizations and insurance companies of all sizes in disputing coverage claims. Like workers’ compensation and employment matters, coverage litigation requires extensive subject-matter knowledge and a devotion to practicing in this complex area of law. Our attorneys are up to the task and maintain long-standing relationships with numerous clients who regularly seek the firm’s counsel to avoid paying out on invalid claims.
Our final area of focus is mediation. Mediation is often a practical and cost-effective alternative for resolving workers’ compensation disputes. With the assistance of an experienced mediator, employer and employee can often come to terms that are reasonably satisfactory to both parties much more efficiently than the traditional hearing process allows. We have attorneys who have mediated hundreds of workers’ compensation claims, including Partner Rick Thompson who is a former Chairman of the Georgia State Board of Workers’ Compensation and Napier Murphy, with 40 years experience handling workers' compensation claims.
