Our Professional Liability Practice Group has an extensive background in defending professionals including physicians, attorneys, accountants, and other licensed practitioners. Nexsen Pruet is prepared to defend professionals in any type of claim ranging from matters before the applicable disciplinary board to defending litigation over professional negligence.
We are strong client advocates, committed to preserving our clients' professional reputations and their livelihoods. Our attorneys combine legal experience with a practical understanding of the issues and policies in virtually every recognized profession. The result is representation that is responsive, effective, and informed.
Nexsen Pruet's trial lawyers are experienced and respected. Our practice includes attorneys listed in Best Lawyers in America and a Fellow in the prestigious American College of Trial Lawyers. Because we are a full-service firm, clients have seamless access to attorneys in other practice areas who can provide complementary and relevant skills.
Alternatives to costly litigation
Just as important, we understand that professionals often need early, reasonable resolution of claims against them. So while we can and do defend cases through trial when necessary — and have done so successfully for decades — we also have the ability to pursue faster, less expensive alternatives to courtroom litigation.
We have defended large and small clients against charges of malpractice, fraud, negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and other civil claims. Additionally, we have provided representation before administrative, state, and federal bodies.
