Professional / Management Liability
protecting management risk
Our attorneys evaluate coverage, advise, and defend clients on claims-made policies issued to a wide-range of traditional and non-traditional professionals and managers, including directors & officers, attorneys, accountants, and realtors. Issues handled are unique to these policies, including claims made/reported, scope of coverage, defense counsel selection, and consent to settle provisions.
We prosecute and defend insurers against claims by policyholders and additional insureds, including declaratory relief, breach of contract, rescission, reformation, fraud and bad faith.
Directors & Officers Liability
Fraud, mismanagement, and economic downturns have led to major D&O events impacting the insurance markets over the last decade. Our clients rely on our understanding of securities laws, state and federal case law, dispute resolution processes, and the scope and intent of the insurance products to evaluate and resolve these often complex claims.
Experience handling the wide gamut of professional liability exposures enables our attorneys to provide clients with the broadest possible perspective in resolving professional errors and omissions claims through negotiation, litigation or arbitration. We represent insurers in claims involving accountants, actuaries, architects and engineers, fiduciaries, financial institutions, insurance agents and brokers, investment advisors, lawyers, managed care facilities, public entities and securities broker-dealers.

Race and gender discrimination
Wrongful termination and retaliation
Wage and hour disputes
Breach of contract
