Professional Liability

Every professional malpractice claim amounts to a personal attack on an individual who has often spent decades earning a reputation. Frilot’s Professional Liability (PL) Group is sensitive to the unique concerns facing professionals and their insurers, and we have defended individuals, groups and large organizations in every facet of professional liability claims from early risk management through trial. We work extensively with professionals and their carriers to protect reputations and ultimately manage the long term impact potentially posed by PL cases.

Our Professional Liability Group has decades of experience in the defense and resolution of malpractice and errors and omissions claims involving:

  • Architects

  • Attorneys

  • Engineers

  • Accountants

  • Real Estate Agents

  • Insurance agents

  • Title agents

  • Design Professionals

  • Directors and Officers

  • Doctors, Hospitals and Allied Health professionals
    (also see our separate Medical Malpractice page).

Often the best solution to any PL malpractice problem is early intervention, not litigation. We have the experience and background to assist our clients with root cause analysis and post-incident investigations, and we work to develop resolution strategies for avoiding litigation where possible. When litigation is inevitable, we work closely with our clients to retain litigation consultants and expert witnesses to evaluate claims early in the process and well before trial. If a decision is made to try a PL case, we will aggressively defend the case to successful verdict.
