When sued, licensed and other professionals come to us. They seek our advice. They rely upon our experience and judgment. They know we will investigate malpractice and professional liability claims early to formulate defense strategies to permit them to make informed, intelligent decisions about how to deal with the risks of a claim before it ripens into full-blown litigation. They know our focus: the cost-effective and efficient resolution of claims. Most of all, they know we understand how the matter impacts their ongoing practice.
Who We Serve
The Group’s attorneys are experienced in all aspects of professional liability defense. We have handled complex design professional, environmental, and construction cases through trial involving millions in exposure. We understand the nuances of defending lawyers, law firms, directors, officers, and fiduciaries on breach of fiduciary duty, malpractice, and ethics charges. We leverage our insurance coverage experience to defend insurance agents and brokers on matters involving primary, excess, and reinsurance issues.
In a recent matter, we successfully defended a $22 million arbitration brought against an engineering firm for issues relating to defective asphalt and construction.
How We Are Different
Here are just a few of the ways that Porzio’s professional liability team distinguishes itself:
Experience—Our team of seasoned trial lawyers, several of whom are Certified Civil Trial Attorneys, focus on defense strategy from day one, and manage the case toward resolution.
Efficiency—Cost-efficient and effective case management is our goal. We use our nationally recognized paralegal program to reduce litigation time and cost.
Reputation—Porzio’s team of trial lawyers are respected as some of the most well-prepared and aggressive litigators in courtrooms throughout New Jersey and New York.
