Legal Malpractice Defense
Our legal malpractice team has a wide range of experience defending lawyers and law firms in state and federal courts, as well as in alternative dispute resolution venues. We are mindful of the financial consequences and reputational damage when an attorney or law firm is sued for legal malpractice. We represent both self-insured attorneys and those represented by professional liability insurers. No two cases are the same and we work closely with our clients to craft the outcome that works for them, whether it be early resolution, alternative dispute resolution, or litigation through trial and appeal.
We also work with attorneys on evaluating whether their professional liability policy applies to a claim. We analyze coverage, provide coverage opinions, seek declaratory judgments, and defend against bad faith claims.
