Legal Malpractice Defense
For nearly thirty years, our attorneys have been active members of the Oregon State Bar Professional Liability Fund’s defense panel. In that capacity, we have successfully conducted numerous bench and jury trials involving claims arising out of the attorney/client relationship, including professional negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and breach of contract claims. We also separately advise Oregon attorneys on risk management and third party discovery issues arising in the context of legal malpractice claims.
Legal malpractice defense is challenging by nature—not just for the defense, but also for the defendants. We embrace that challenge. Win, lose or settle, our goal has been to let our clients know that we have done our best to protect their interests. In our view, this work is not just a category of insurance defense representation. It is personal.
