Professional Liability & Discipline
In today’s modern economy, professionals must navigate complex and evolving working environments. Under the pressures of professional responsibility, government oversight, and public scrutiny in an increasingly litigious society, it is more important than ever for individuals and firms to protect themselves from the impacts of professional liability claims and disciplinary proceedings.
With decades of experience, our lawyers provide the strong advocacy that professionals need in their corner. Professional liability is a highly complex area of insurance defense and requires a legal team with focus across a range of regulatory, civil, and quasi-criminal matters. We have the resources and skill to handle any professional liability matter, no matter the size or complexity. From disciplinary proceedings against individuals to multi-million-dollar actions against firms, our solid track record speaks for itself.
We help professionals protect themselves.
We work with individuals and firms from all sectors to assess risk, create proactive strategies, and provide policy recommendations to avoid issues. With even the most competent professionals, however, we know claims come up or mistakes happen. We help to mitigate any problem that may arise and will aggressively defend our clients when necessary before disciplinary and regulatory tribunals, governing associations and administrative agencies, and at all levels of court.
With focused experience in a wide range of regulated and self-regulated industries, including legal and financial services, accounting, health care, and engineering, we know that professional liability claims can have a profound impact on an individual. Our lawyers handle complicated situations with skill and sensitivity while defending our clients’ interests and reputation. We assist lawyers, architects, surveyors, appraisers, and veterinarians as well as psychologists, pharmacists, doctors, nurses, and other professionals.
We work not only with the professional, but with their insurers, in order to provide the strongest defence possible whether it is in the regulatory, disciplinary, or civil litigation area.
Count on us for tailored solutions.
Every professional liability claim is different. Whatever the situation or industry, our lawyers have extensive experience acting quickly and decisively in a professional liability claim or disciplinary proceeding. We work closely with our clients to provide cost-effective and tailored solutions that are always in their best interests.
We have experience in alternative dispute resolution methods and pursue mediation or arbitration solutions first. But our reputation for fiercely defending the interests of our clients in litigation is well-known. Whether an issue requires a simple agreement to resolve or vigorous defence in court, we offer exceptional service and strategic advice to find the best solution for each individual client and situation.
