Our attorneys practicing in the area of professional liability defense have unsurpassed expertise in defending a wide variety of professionals in malpractice and errors and omissions actions, including claims involving the legal and accounting industries, design professionals/architects and engineers, real estate agents/brokers, certified public accountants, and medical/healthcare providers. We combine extensive trial experience with attention to detail in defending against these types of claims. In addition, our attorneys provide education programs on avoidance of risk and current law for our clients through their professional organizations.
Our professional liability practice includes:
- Defending attorney malpractice claims involving virtually every substantive legal practice, including alleged transactional matter, trusts and estates, and litigation-related errors as well as fraud and misrepresentation claims. Our attorneys have broad experience in defending lawyers and law firms in legal malpractice actions in both state and federal courts, in alternative dispute-resolution venues, and before professional licensing and disciplinary boards.
- Defending director and officer liability claims including regulatory affairs, business litigation, corporate and securities issues, estate planning, and compensation and benefits. We also regularly advise boards of directors, board committees, and individual directors and officers on corporate governance and compliance issues, as well as other issues that senior executives may face. We are well-versed not only in the unique liability issues facing corporate officers and directors, but also in working with insurers on complex coverage issues.
- Defending real estate brokers, agents, inspectors and appraisers against claims involving professional negligence and errors and omissions as well as resolution of earnest money disputes. Our attorneys have successfully defended these cases at both the trial and appellate level, including appellate cases that have favorably construed and clarified existing law benefiting present and future clients.
- Other professional liability claims including accountants, medical professionals, veterinary, long-term care facilities and nursing homes. As professional ourselves, we understand the deeply personal nature of such claims. We work closely with the client in order to formulate the best possible defense strategy. We aggressively protect our client’s interests while at the same time minimizing their ultimate risk.
