Professional Liability

For more than a quarter century, Butler Snow has actively practiced in the area of professional liability defense. Our seasoned team of attorneys with extensive trial has handled defense of professional liability claims involving lawyers, accountants, financial professionals, architects and engineers, directors and officers, insurance agents and real estate agents. Our attorneys also represent medical professionals, including doctors, dentists, nurses, and physical therapists in defense of professional liability claims throughout the country.  We represent professionals in a wide array of specialties and underlying claims and transactions.

Our group works closely with our clients advising on risk management, liability defense and litigation strategies. We explore settlement opportunities with our clients, keeping in mind the impact of the case on the professional’s ongoing practice. Our attorneys emphasize a cost-effective approach to handling malpractice claims. We represent our clients before arbitration panels, professional licensing and administrative agencies, at state and federal courts, and on appeal. The firm encourages alternative dispute resolution, when appropriate, for resolving both claims and lawsuits.

Butler Snow also regularly handles coverage matters relating to professional liability insurance. We analyze and advise our clients on both scope and adequacy of professional liability insurance coverage.
