Professional NegligenceThe area of professional negligence involves actions against various types of professionals for malpractice. Our attorneys are experienced in the defense of professionals, including accountants, architects, attorneys, engineers, real estate professionals and health care providers. Our professional liability experience also includes the defense of insurance agents and brokers in lawsuits alleging fraud and misrepresentation.
Essential to defending such lawsuits is having a thorough understanding of the professional's area of expertise. Often, such cases involve sophisticated legal and ethical issues. It is important to obtain a complete understanding of all of the facts and parties involved during the investigation of such claims. Additionally, such suits often require expert opinions to prove or disprove certain legal theories.
We pride ourselves on having a full understanding of the profession involved and the legal issues to defend these types of actions. Best, Vanderlaan & Harrington appreciates that such actions involve the professional's name and reputation and works closely with its clients throughout the case to keep them fully informed and to resolve the claim through alternative dispute methods or litigation.
