We focus our practice on the defense of corporate and professional clients, as well as insurers in high exposure and complex litigation matters. We cater to Fortune 500 companies, religious and health care institutions, as well as closely owned family businesses. Our professional clients include medical professionals, attorneys, insurance agents and brokers and officers and directors. The cases we handle usually involve significant personal injury, employment discrimination and civil rights claims, and medical malpractice and related healthcare litigation. We also provide counseling and representation to the insurance industry, and licensing and disciplinary representation to the professions.
In the February 2019 issue of Inside Medical Liability, CG&P founding partner, Ralph Catalano, writes about the professional obligations that lawyers have when representing more than one client in the same lawsuit, and advises healthcare providers when and under what circumstances they might need their own lawyer.
CG&P recently obtained dismissal of all claims asserted by plaintiff against a prominent New York City home health care agency. Plaintiff alleged that CG&P’s client failed to properly monitor the decedent allowing her to fall and sustain a subdural hematoma which ultimately caused her death.
CG&P is pleased to announce that Partner Katherine A. Giovacco will be honored as one of New York’s Outstanding Women in Law for 2019 by the Honorable A. Gail Prudenti and Hofstra University School of Law.
