Professional Liability

Smith Duggan Buell & Rufo has substantial experience representing professionals, including doctors, physicians, nurses, lawyers, and architects, in the defense of claims before federal and state courts, including providing independent advice and representation to professionals when insurance companies provide a defense under a reservation of rights, when there is a conflict of interest between the professional’s desire to settle a claim and an insurance company’s desire to litigate, when alleged damages exceed policy limits and threaten personal assets, or when a professional is subpoenaed as a witness or a potential target to provide sworn testimony at depositions.
