Professional Liability Defense

KDV’s Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Practice Team is comprised of highly skilled practitioners located across all of our office locations.  Through insurance carriers and direct representation, our professional liability attorneys represent a broad range of individual professionals, firms and other entities in defending claims arising from the performance of their duties.

KDV attorneys are licensed to practice in multiple jurisdictions and have extensive experience litigating professional liability matters in both state and federal courts through trial and appeal.  Members of our practice group also represent professionals in disciplinary hearings and other proceedings before various state agencies and regulatory boards.  We are nationally recognized as a seasoned team of professionals with the skills and knowledge necessary to handle a wide array of professional liability matters, including claims involving:

  • Accountants and Actuaries
  • Architects and Engineers
  • Billing Services Personnel (Medical and Non-Medical)
  • Consultants, Notaries and other “Miscellaneous” Professionals
  • Homeowners’ Associations
  • Insurance Agents and Brokers
  • Lawyers
  • Doctors and Health Care Professionals (Medical Malpractice)
  • Real Estate Professionals
  • Securities Industry Professionals

Protecting Our Clients’ Confidentiality and Reputations

Accusations of professional negligence and misconduct are serious matters that have the potential to destroy an individual’s livelihood and professional reputation.  At KDV, our attorneys understand how much is at stake when these types of claims surface.  In every case, we remain sensitive to our client’s need for confidentiality and work to resolve these matters as expeditiously as possible and with the utmost discretion.  Our lawyers carefully navigate clients through every step of the process, explaining complex legal issues and crafting strategies and approaches designed to achieve the best possible outcome.  

While we strive to settle professional liability claims at the earliest possible stage, we recognize that sometimes a fair and acceptable resolution may be unattainable.  In these situations, our lawyers are well-equipped to litigate the matter through trial and appeal.  KDV attorneys are also experienced in representing professionals facing disciplinary hearings and other proceedings.  From the initial investigation through hearings and appeals, our lawyers are focused on protecting our clients’ licenses and careers.   

KDV believes that taking a proactive approach to professional liability matters is the best way to avoid these high-exposure claims.  The lawyers in our Professional Liability/Errors and Omissions Practice regularly provide risk audits to companies and other organizations to assess and address their potential for exposure.  We also offer a hotline for lawyers, accountants, brokers and other professionals who need risk-management advice and guidance in handling potential issues and responding to professional liability claims.
