ProfessionalLiability

We represent professionals, including health care providers, lawyers, accountants, realtors, engineers, and architects in claims as well as before the regulatory agencies that oversee these professionals.

Overview

Our Professional Liability Practice Area attorneys have represented virtually every type of professional in malpractice and disciplinary hearings across New York and beyond. The professionals we represent include accountants; attorneys; architects; engineers; insurance agents; corporate directors and officers; and the full range of health care providers, including medical doctors of all specialties; nurses; nurse practitioners; physician assistants; chiropractors; podiatrists; physical therapists; diagnostic providers; home health care agencies; nursing homes; and hospitals.

Our attorneys have litigated and successfully tried to verdict claims against professionals in state and federal courts. We have also represented professionals before the NYS Board of Regents, the Office of Professional Discipline, the Board of Professional Medical Conduct, the Insurance Department, and accreditation boards of health care providers and insurers as well as a wide array of regulatory agencies in New York State.

Our professional liability attorneys serve as designated panel counsel for a variety of prominent insurance companies who insure professionals. In addition, we represent a large, publicly traded, medical-diagnostic company, handling its professional liability claims throughout the Northeast.
