Professional liability insurance claims historically rise each time the economy trends downward. In addition, the increasingly complex nature of the U.S. regulatory system, with changes such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, and the RICO statute, has opened the door to increased litigation. When you or your insureds are facing a professional negligence claim, it is important to have experienced professional liability defense lawyers by your side fighting aggressively to protect your interests.

At BCM Law, P.C., we have defended insurers and their insureds in professional negligence claims for more than two decades. Our award-winning attorneys have the in-depth knowledge, industry-relevant experience, and ethical rectitude to successfully handle each professional liability case from start to finish. A favorable negotiated settlement, a victory in the courtroom, or seeking an alternate form of resolution; whatever path is chosen, we bring our formidable skills to bear to put you in the best possible position to succeed.

We handle all types of professional liability defense cases, including claims against:

  • Legal Professionals
  • Accountants
  • Real Estate Agents
  • Insurance Agents
  • Architects
  • Engineers
  • Medical Professionals

Fast and Painstakingly Thorough

Our fundamental approach to professional liability defense is simple; we believe that 90% of all cases are won or lost before the two sides meet for the first time. For this reason, we go to great lengths to ensure that when we prepare a case, no stone is left unturned. We put our extensive experience to work to examine every angle to build the strongest possible case, and we complete our preparation quickly, so you have optimal leverage from the moment we engage with the plaintiff.

Putting Your Needs First

No matter what the case, our first goal is to identify your resources, vulnerabilities, and needs. Once we fully understand your needs, we develop the most effective defense strategy to meet your goals and keep costs to a minimum. Some potential professional liability defense strategies may include:

  • Challenging the Standing of Plaintiffs
  • Attacking Causation
  • Compelling Mediation
  • Asserting Rights to Arbitration
  • Educating the Fact-Finder (i.e. Negotiating the Expectation Gap)

The Best Defense

Clearly, the best defense against a professional liability claim is to prevent a claim from being filed in the first place.
