Accountants, real estate brokers, architects, financial advisors, lawyers, and insurance brokers, are held to exacting standards in the provision of professional services. Before a suit is filed we work with clients to waive off the garbage and settle the real claims with reasonable litigants. Failing this we have handled professional liability cases for decades and our aggressive professional liability lawyers and error and omissions attorneys work with licensed professionals to manage these issues early and efficiently from trial through the appellate level. Our clients are insurance carriers and the professional whom they underwrite in Virginia, Maryland, Washington, DC, New York, New Jersey and Delaware.
Our representation extends to alternative dispute resolution and representation before professional and regulatory boards. In addition to state regulatory agencies, our offices in Washington DC give us a key touchpoint with many national regulatory bodies. We know the statutes, cases, rules, and guidelines that govern professional conduct. We use the best experts and understand that a professional license is more than a job.
We specialize in representing insurers in complex, high-exposure coverage matters. Our extensive experience includes analyzing claims, drafting opinions, and providing insurers with sound pre-litigation coverage advice and analysis. We also assist our clients with drafting reservation of rights and declination letters with an eye toward the possibility of future litigation, particularly since such letters usually become key exhibits in coverage actions.
We have a proven track record of successfully representing insurers in state and federal courts across the country in multimillion-dollar coverage disputes involving all lines, including professional liability, errors and omissions, commercial general liability, directors and officers, excess and surplus, and commercial property. Our experience includes aggressively prosecuting declaratory judgment actions and vigorously defending clients against bad faith allegations and punitive damages claims.
We strive to represent our clients in the most cost-effective manner possible. As an AV Rated firm with lawyers who left behind mega-firms—firms that have continually raised their hourly rates in recent years—we provide our clients with large-firm expertise and service at economical rates.
