Professional Malpractice Defense

Description of Practice

In today's business environment, companies and individuals who provide professional services are increasingly exposed to lawsuits based upon claimed errors of deficiencies in the provision of those services.  GERMER has successfully prosecuted and defended a wide variety of professional liability claims and cases involving the following professions:

  • Accountants;
  • Architects;
  • Contractors;
  • Engineers;
  • Health care professionals;
  • Insurance agents;
  • Lawyers; and
  • Real estate agents.

The firm's attorneys recognize that the litigation of professional liability claims requires aggressiveness and sensitivity, in that individuals alleging professional negligence often feel they have suffered damages caused by professionals in whom they have reposed trust.  Moreover, professionals who have rendered valuable services often confront claims that are unfounded and involve not only money, but professional reputation.  The attorneys at GERMER strive to balance those competing approaches by aggressively defending these cases where necessary and actively encouraging early resolution of disputes through arbitration or mediation when appropriate.
