Wallace Jordan understands that professionals in every industry face a dizzying array of legal issues in every aspect of their practice, at the local, state and federal level. Our firm works closely with professionals and their businesses on a wide variety of matters, encompassing the full spectrum of litigation, regulatory and transactional issues.
The attorneys in our Professional Liability Practice Group have extensive experience in defending the rights and reputations of medical and non-medical professionals in claims involving physicians, nurses, clinics, hospitals, lawyers, accountants, actuaries, fiduciaries, financial advisors and institutions (including under FINRA), architects, engineers and other design professionals, insurance agents and brokers, notaries, appraisers, surveyors, real estate agents and brokers, surety and bond, public officials and law enforcement officers, and corporate officers and directors. The combination of our experience and expertise in Professional Liability, Construction and Healthcare has made us leaders in the areas of ethics and compliance and cyber security and data privacy and protection, for both medical and non-medical institutions and individuals.
Our lawyers are experienced in handling cases against and involving professionals in state and federal trial and appellate courts, in arbitration, and in administrative and regulatory proceedings. We take an aggressive stance against all non–meritorious claims which has resulted in several outright dismissals and summary judgments. We also advise and counsel our individual, corporate and institutional clients, in coordination with risk managers and the insurance industry, in an effort to avoid legal issues before they arise and to help them minimize exposure when they do. Our commitment to the defense of professionals inherently recognizes the unique issues presented in professional liability litigation. While our team takes great pride in the ability to present the professional’s perspective before a jury, we also recognize the sensitive nature of the claims and the resultant need to bring such matters to confidential and cost-effective conclusions.
