Evaluating and Resolving Professional Liability Errors and Omissions Coverage Disputes

KDV’s Insurance Coverage and Litigation attorneys help clients evaluate and resolve complex errors and omissions (E&O) coverage issues and disputes. Our lawyers deliver a full range of services to our professional liability insurance clients, from drafting policies and preparing manuscript endorsements in all types of policies afforded to professionals, to analyzing claims, providing coverage opinions and negotiating and litigating coverage disputes. We are widely recognized as a team of highly experienced legal practitioners and litigators focused on helping our clients develop reasonable and cost-effective resolutions. When a compromise cannot be reached, our attorneys are fully equipped to litigate the case at trial and through appeal.

KDV’s Professional Liability Department is comprised of seasoned attorneys located throughout the firm’s strategically located offices. Our litigators are licensed to practice in multiple jurisdictions across the nation and routinely represent clients before state and federal administrative agencies. We handle all types of E&O issues, including those involving:

  • Lawyers
  • Broker-Dealers
  • Insurance Agents and Brokers
  • Title Agents
  • Architects and Engineers
  • Accountants
  • Directors and Officers
  • Registered Representatives
  • Physicians and Other Health Care Professionals
  • Financial Investment Advisors
  • Managing General Agents
  • Managing General Underwriters

The attorneys at KDV have decades of collective experience representing insurance carriers and the professionals they serve. We have a full understanding of the nature and scope of coverage offered to professionals under E&O policies and an acute awareness of the complex substantive issues that often underlie professional liability and malpractice claims.

Putting Our Clients’ Interests First

At KDV we are committed to putting the interests of our clients first.   Senior partners actively manage each case and personally respond to our professional liability insurance clients’ requests and concerns in a timely fashion. When coverage issues surface, we evaluate the situation and advise insurers on their rights and obligations under all applicable E&O insurance contracts. Each insurance coverage attorney at our firm has vast experience interpreting and analyzing complex insurance policy language and we regularly prepare detailed coverage opinion letters for insurers. We explain the potential risks and exposure associated with malpractice claims and outline all options that may be available to resolve the coverage dispute, including negotiation, mediation and litigation.

While our goal is to help our insurer clients reach a positive and equitable resolution prior to the onset of litigation, we recognize that there are times when such a scenario may be unattainable. In these cases, we offer a team of strong litigators who will provide vigorous representation at every stage of the legal process, from pre-trial investigations and discovery to trial and appeal.
