Professional Liability Defense
When professionals are at risk in litigation, Gordon & Rees has an experienced, deep roster of attorneys who understand the unique challenges and issues presented by such claims.
The Professional Liability Defense Practice Group includes lawyers practicing across the country with extensive experience in the defense of professionals, including attorneys, health care providers, architects, engineers, dentists, accountants, directors and officers, real estate brokers and agents, insurance brokers and financial planners. Gordon & Rees represents professionals under insurers’ errors and omissions policies and directly when the professional is self-insured. Gordon & Rees also serves as National Coordinating Counsel for one of the world’s largest insurers concerning COVID-19 related claims against insurance agents and brokers.
With experience in all aspects of professional liability defense, attorneys in the group are well qualified to handle sensitive issues of confidentiality, the impact of the case on the professional's ongoing practice, and the need to work closely with the client in developing a litigation strategy and negotiating settlement. Gordon & Rees attorneys appreciate that professional liability suits threaten financial loss – but also realize that the greater threat can be damage to a client’s hard-earned reputation. A result-oriented, cost-effective approach to the defense of malpractice claims is emphasized. At the outset of the representation, the assigned attorney works with the client to develop a strategy and a budget for the case. The Gordon & Rees attorney then works aggressively and closely with the client for a successful disposition. The Professional Liability Defense Practice Group also counsels clients on how to avoid risks and litigation.
