Protecting Your Professional License And Your Credibility
Since high damage amounts are commonly sought in these cases, professional liability litigation is a high-stakes affair, often involving both large damages claims and the threat of significant reputational harm. To effectively defend professional liability claims, a lawyer must understand the following:
- What the client-professional was required to do
- What theories of law should apply
- What other actors may be responsible
- What type of expert testimony will be required
- What the monetary and non-monetary risks are for the client
We understand our professional clients’ needs to have the claim resolved quickly and reasonably whenever possible. We are also sensitive to client concerns regarding the high costs often associated with defending professional liability actions. We constantly seek alternatives to expensive, protracted litigation and encourage arbitration and mediation in all appropriate cases.
