“Malpractice and similar claims call the professional’s reputation into question, so protecting the client’s good name is often the predominant concern.”
Malpractice and similar claims against professionals represent more than a financial risk to those involved. Professional reputation and standing in the community are also primary concerns that extend beyond monetary liability, which is typically covered by insurance. At McGrath North, we are attuned to these concerns and to the unique relationship that our professional clients have with their insurance carriers when it comes to liability issues. That’s why our professional defense team involves both the client and carrier in negotiating early settlements or when developing a litigation strategy and budget to defend against unavoidable claims. Given our many years of successfully representing professional clients against substantial monetary claims, we offer the in-depth experience necessary to resolve whatever liability issues are encountered in your specific profession.
Industry Experience: Malpractice, breach of contract, breach of fiduciary duty claims, fraud or negligent misrepresentation claims.
