This practice area has the following sub practice areas:
Professional Liability -
Lawyers, accountants, real estate agents and brokers, health care providers and other white collar professionals all face unique challenges. When liability claims arise, these professionals face the prospect of civil litigation, as well as the risks involved in administrative disciplinary hearings and resultant potential sanctions. Our attorneys are often called upon to protect individuals and their practice groups from fines, suspensions, and loss of licensure.
Kiernan Trebach’s attorneys are experienced in defending professionals and have appeared before boards of professional responsibility, administrative agencies, trial courts and appellate courts to protect the careers of professionals who have been charged with malfeasance, impropriety, moral turpitude, violations of statutes and other acts of misconduct or malpractice. At stake in these proceedings is often the ability of our clients to continue to earn their livelihood. Kiernan Trebach's lawyers appreciate the significance of that responsibility and work tirelessly on their behalf.
We have experience in each of our offices successfully defending professionals through Errors and Omissions, Directors and Officers, and Professional Liability insurance coverage. We are panel counsel to many of the world's largest insurance companies and many smaller and more specialized carriers. Our competitive rate structure is attractive to individuals, risk retention groups and insurance companies, all of whom seek superior legal representation for industry professionals.
Retaining Kiernan Trebach is the first step in returning a professional to focusing on the career that they have worked long and hard to achieve.
Architects & Engineers -
Kiernan Trebach’s attorneys specialize in the defense of design professionals, including architects, engineers, and other professionals involved in construction-related claims. We handle these claims in a skilled and cost effective manner based on our experience in contracts, product liability, toxic tort, and insurance and our understanding as to how these issues affect design professionals.
Our approach to resolution of architects and engineers claims is often most successful when our attorneys are engaged early in the process, facilitating our ability to provide a thorough and accurate investigation and claim analysis, shielded by privilege. It also allows us to explore pre-litigation resolution, monitor the remediation process, and mitigate potential damages.
Kiernan Trebach attorneys are at the forefront of significant, building-related cases involving defects in the design of major commercial structures, material selection, or techniques in construction and remediation, often leading to issues related to mold, toxic exposure, and resultant bodily injury, as well as catastrophic failures such as building collapses.
Our attorneys are industry leaders with extensive experience in defending our clients through arbitration, litigation, and alternative dispute resolution in a wide variety of claims, with a reputation for successfully resolving complex cases in federal and state courts and the American Arbitration Association.
