Professional Liability

Conn Kavanaugh’s trial attorneys are accomplished in defending claims against attorneys, health care professionals, insurance agents and brokers, and other professionals. In addition, we regularly represent these professionals before licensing, regulatory and disciplinary boards.

Our Professional Liability team includes seasoned former prosecutors and a strong, deep bench of lawyers with extensive experience in handling complex litigation. We have litigated many professional malpractice cases to verdict and negotiated favorable settlements in many others. Also, we have a solid track record of obtaining the dismissal of such claims prior to trial.

As appropriate, our attorneys are skilled in responding to or resisting subpoenas and discovery requests. We aim to narrow requests that are overly broad or abusive, protect information that is proprietary or confidential, and minimize the burden on our clients of responding to such requests.

Through membership in and leadership of national, state and local organizations devoted to professional liability matters, our team consistently stays abreast of current legal trends.
