Professional Liability - Defense

Defending Professionals

As professional liability claims and lawsuits against architects, engineers, land surveyors, insurance brokers and other professionals have increased exponentially over the last few years, Coughlin Duffy has aggressively and successfully defended and represented numerous professionals. 

Our Capabilities

We offer broad experience and expertise representing professionals in professional malpractice claims. Collectively our attorneys have represented architects, engineers, land surveyors, surgical centers, insurance brokers, title companies, attorneys, and other professionals at arbitration and in court. We understand each professional discipline, the role that discipline did and should play in the context of specific claims and lawsuits and how to successfully defend professionals from this expanding litigation area. We aggressively defend professionals and have the background to identify key facts and issues as well as structuring a defense in such a way as to seek, if possible, early disposition without a trial. We have successfully obtained dismissals utilizing New Jersey’s Affidavit of Merit statute, statutes of limitation, as well as by summary judgment.
