More than ever, our professional clients need representation they can count on. Changing economic times have resulted in litigation strategies targeting nearly every type of professional. Our professional clients often find that today’s business partners become tomorrow’s adversaries. When a lawsuit results, our Professional Liability team of attorneys responds quickly and with precision. Our relationships with our professional clients and insurance companies are based on communication, trust, and results. Whether through motion practice, jury trial or, when appropriate, early settlement, we work together with our clients toward efficient case resolution.
Lewis Brisbois' Professional Liability Practice is comprised of attorneys located throughout all of our offices nationwide. Either by way of direct engagement or retention through the professional's insurance carrier, we represent, among others: accountants, architects & engineers, attorneys, bankers, computer and media professionals, (cyber law), financial planners, healthcare providers, insurance brokers and agents, school districts and municipalities, property appraisers and inspectors, real estate appraisers, brokers and agents, and securities brokers (FINRA).
Members of our Professional Liability Department are experienced in handling litigation in both state and federal courts through trial and on appeal. Our attorneys are licensed to practice in most states and represent professionals in administrative proceedings.
Lewis Brisbois is engaged in representing clients across multiple practice areas. Where appropriate, members of our Professional Liability Practice work with attorneys from other practice areas within the firm to provide legal representation of the highest quality to a broad range of professionals. Since our firm's inception, no other law firm in the United States has successfully defended members of such a wide array of professional occupations.
