We have experience with a wide range of matters including:

  • Errors and omissions liability

  • Regulatory investigations and procedures
  • Design and construction defects
  • Product failures
  • Title, real estate, and insurance agent liability

Meagher & Geer partner Brad Jones is a co-author of the American Bar Association, Professional Liability Litigation Committee “50 State Survey of Legal Malpractice Law,” (published in February 2009). The Survey is a compendium of state-specific articles addressing the elements, defenses and key issues common to claims against lawyers. 

Our separate Professional Liability - Health Care, Construction, and Securities and Financial Services industry practice groups complement our general professional liability practices group. We are active participants in the American Bar Association, Defense Research Institute, and the Professional Liability Underwriting Society. One of our lawyers has spoken extensively on liability and insurance coverage for claims against design professionals. Others have contributed to ABA-approved 50-state practice guides. These are but a few representative examples of the extensive experience our lawyers bring to this practice area.

The Meagher & Geer law firm is approved by many insurance carriers as professional liability panel counsel on either a state or regional basis.  We value the relationships and trust that we have built in the professional and insurance communities.
