Advising our clients on different opportunities and challenges of the industry.
Deacons can protect your interests and advise on the best way to resolve professional negligence actions.
In a culture of “blame and claim”, professional negligence cases are on the rise. This can have an adverse impact on insurers, involving them in lengthy and often highly complex disputes, as well as on the professionals themselves. Careful strategic handling of professional negligence claims or misconduct complaints (whether acting for the complainant or on the defence side) and a sound cost/benefit analysis are therefore vital.
Our lawyers act for insurers and their professional insureds in the legal, accountancy, financial services and medical fields, among others. We also handle professional misconduct and complaint cases. We advise clients on negotiation strategy and settlement arrangements in addition to litigation.
