The firm is widely regarded as a leader in the field of lawyers’ professional liability, and its attorneys are frequently asked by Bar Associations to lecture regarding ethics, risk management and the defense and avoidance of attorney liability claims.
CG&P defends attorneys from claims stemming from a broad array of underlying matters, including commercial and real estate transactions, real estate litigation, personal injury matters, criminal cases, trusts and estates matters and tax disputes. Conflicts of interest and ethical issues arise in many attorney liability cases, and CG&P’s attorneys, who are active in the Ethics and Law Practice Management Committees of the local and state Bar Associations, are well-qualified to address them.
The Firm’s approach to the defense of lawyers has always been to first gain a thorough understanding of the area of practice and the scope of the problem facing the professional. Then the Firm’s attorneys assess the risks and potential outcomes of litigation and focus the applicable legal arguments to resolve the issue quickly. CG&P’s attorneys have successfully argued countless appeals in attorney liability matters, and their names appear on many of the leading cases in the area.
