Legal Malpractice Defense

Vandeventer Black’s Legal Malpractice Defense team is experienced in handling all types of professional liability claims against attorneys, working with some of the nation’s top insurance carriers.  We defend attorneys in a broad range of professional disputes in virtually any practice area.

Our attorneys are experienced in both the trial and appellate levels.  We also focus on resolving cases early through motion practice, mediation, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution. We are acutely aware of the impact these claims make not only on the lawyers facing them but also on their firms. We understand the importance of preserving a firm’s image and work with clients to address these issues, particularly in high profile situations.

We also counsel firms on loss prevention strategies and day-to-day issues related to a law practice including, analyzing policies for professional liability coverage, drafting partnership agreements, and consulting and delivering reasoned opinions with respect to conflicts of interest. We believe managing risks is the best legal malpractice defense strategy available.
