At Zarwin Baum, our professional liability defense group prides itself on being a leading choice for insurers, individuals and entities seeking to defend against such claims in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
Our experienced Professional Liability team has successfully represented professionals in all types of proceedings, including administrative, arbitrations, trials and appeals, defending all professional liability matters from inception through trial and appeal. In significant exposure cases, the firm is often retained prior to litigation to preserve evidence, obtain a thorough understanding of the underlying claim and to plan an aggressive strategy for when actual litigation ensues. We fully understand the desire of professionals to vigorously defend against the claims being presented against them but also to be sensitive to the potential impact the litigation may have on the standing and reputation of the client in the business community.
We work very closely with the professional to fully understand the underlying set of facts and circumstances that led to the claim and to develop a cost-effective strategy to defend and to minimize the exposure of the claim. We understand the potential threat that the claim poses to the professional's business and therefore strive to develop a trust with the professional that will place our team in the best position to defend the lawsuit.
Unlike most defense firms, Zarwin Baum is a full-service law firm that has numerous practice areas beyond insurance defense. As a result, when a professional liability matter involves a discrete area of the law, often there is an attorney “down the hall” who handles that practice area who will provide practical guidance and serve as an in-house consultant. There are unique standards of care applicable to these professionals and because we have such a wide array of practice areas, our attorneys often have a significant competitive advantage over opposing counsel, which produces excellent results.
At the outset, our experienced professional liability defense team provides our clients and insurers with an early and thorough analysis of the merits of the claim to make informed decisions about the potential exposure and to develop an effective litigation strategy. When appropriate and with the professional's approval, we consider alternative dispute resolution to preserve the client's business reputation and to minimize the lengthy litigation process.
