Risk/Litigation Division

The Risk/Litigation Division is located in the City Hall building, along with the Civil Division. The division is supervised by Claire Gillmor, Division Head, and includes two full-time Risk Analysts.


The Risk/Litigation Division works to minimize the City’s legal risks, promote and coordinate the safety of citizens and employees, and protect and enforce the interests of the city in state and federal courts. To that end, the division advises the city on insurance and risk management issues. The division administers insurance programs relating to the city’s real and personal property. The division works with city departments and the city’s municipal insurance pool to handle claims for damaged property and personal injury, and to reduce the risks posed by city activities to city employees and the public at large. The division litigates the City’s claims and settles or defends litigation against the city.

For risk management issues, including filing a claim against the city, contact the Risk/Litigation Division.
