We defend good medicine and provide strategies to help your team confidently pursue high standards of care.

A malpractice claim can be personally devastating and harmful to your reputation as a physician. Our goal is to minimize the impact of a claim and provide ethical legal defense. We consider all cases seriously, and if our insured receives notice of a claim, or potential claim, we take action to ensure they are treated fairly. We listen and provide experienced counsel, bringing clarity and integrity to the claims process. Our five regional teams understand national medical malpractice claim trends and can apply that knowledge to your defense at state and local levels as needed.
