Fiduciary obligations and the claims resulting from an alleged breach create a unique set of issues for litigants. IMS partners with litigators to vigorously advocate for their professional services clients with a fully integrated strategy of protection and mitigation.
Professional services firms, whose employees require licenses to perform highly specialized or technical functions, often have a higher risk exposure than other classifications of businesses. An alleged oversight can become a professional liability claim for breach of fiduciary duty, professional negligence, legal or medical malpractice, or errors and omissions. Whether your client provides accounting, legal, engineering, insurance, or investment services, IMS will help you identify and address the unique challenges of their professional liability case.
Professional liability matters can be tougher to navigate than other insurance defense actions due to the technical components of the services provided and/or the emotional nature of the claim at hand. And the stakes can be high when a jury feels no sympathy for an insurance company. There are complicating factors too—is your client a public company or was there a broker who acted as a risk advisor? Was there a contractor involved?
You can proceed with confidence with our experienced consultants providing insights that help you craft and deliver effective case strategies. IMS offers highly skilled trial strategists, jury researchers, design specialists, and presentation experts to assist your team in developing the narrative and ensuring that your message is conveyed clearly and concisely.
Professional services firms perform highly specialized functions, usually technical in nature, such as medical services, law firms, accounting, architectural, or engineering services. Professional liability cases require an expert with the perfect combination of strong technical expertise in the field while speaking in a non-technical manner for jurors. There is no need to take time away from preparing your defense to figure out who can help you—we can.
IMS is the industry leader in locating the most qualified and credible expert witness to defend your professional liability action. With our extensive network of relationships, combined with customized methods of locating the right expert with the right experience in the right jurisdiction, we will quickly provide the best expert for your case.
