Professional Liability

Defending licensed professional demands creativity as well as an understanding of the nuances of the specialized field of our clients. Our Professional Liability practice group has experience in defending malpractice claims across all sectors of professional practice. Examples of our clients include the following professionals:

  • Insurance agents and brokers
  • Lawyers
  • Accountants
  • Title insurance professionals
  • Financial institutions
  • Directors and officers of public and private entities
  • Not-for-profit associations
  • Architects and engineers
  • FDCPA and TCPA targets
  • Real Estate Professionals

In addition to handling individual malpractice claims, our team is experienced in defending matters filed in a class action setting. With experience ranging from FDCPA and FCRA to TCCWNA and wage claims, we have the expertise to aggressively and creatively defend class actions in both state and federal courts from inception through the appellate level.

Our Professional Liability practice group works as a team toward a common vision. We direct individual efforts toward the client’s litigation objectives respecting not only the monetary but the non-monetary costs and risks litigants face in defending against these claims.

We understand the personal and professional burden professional malpractice claims place on clients. Our ability to successfully navigate the challenges that burden creates sets us apart as carrier-retained counsel in these matters. Our experience being retained on non-insured matters for those same professionals over the years convinces us this is the approach which most effectively and appropriately meets our responsibilities to both carrier and professional.
