The Professional Liability Group is dedicated to the representation of professionals. The lawyers of the group focus their practice on the defense of actions and proceedings against professionals arising out of professional practice. Many of the matters involve professional malpractice which accuses the professional of deviating from the standard of care. The matters handled by the Professional Liability Group also include claims for breach of contract, defamation, commercial torts, intentional torts such as fraud, conspiracy and illegal acts, and claims based on regulations of professional conduct. The lawyers of the Professional Liability Group manage, monitor and participate in collateral proceedings involving criminal investigations and prosecutions, administrative proceedings, and professional licensing proceedings which may impact the claim litigation. Our Professional Liability Group is accustomed to handling litigation involving issues which affect the liability of professionals.
The Professional Liability Group works hand in hand with the Medical Malpractice group in the defense of medical professionals. The Professional Liability practice group focused its efforts upon the representation of non-medical professionals including the representation of architects and engineers, insurance agents, brokers, securities dealers, and corporate directors and officers. Among the professional liability matters handled by the group are the defense of class actions, derivative actions, and securities law based actions.
The representation of professionals for matters arising out of professional conduct requires handling by experienced attorneys who concentrate in the practice. The structure of the Professional Liability Group encourages the lawyers and their staff to collaborate. Through sharing knowledge and ideas about issues common to the representation of all professionals, the talent of each professional liability attorney can contribute toward achieving the optimal defense. The group uses available technology to manage, develop, plan and organize complex commercial litigation matters. Swartz Campbell lawyers are accustomed to the demands which attend the representation of professionals.
