Professional Liability


Professional Liability

In 1991, the Louisiana legislature enacted a series of statutes governing professional liability. Since that time, Allen & Gooch has been at the forefront of professional liability practice in Louisiana, involved in a series of precedent-setting decisions issued by the Louisiana Supreme Court and other statewide courts.

Leaders in Professional Liability

Not surprisingly, our professional liability attorneys are frequent speakers at seminars in Louisiana and elsewhere. At the same time, they work hard to stay abreast of the most recent theories of liability and the latest defenses developed by attorneys around the country. They are constantly honing their trial skills.

When Reputations Are at Stake

For these reasons, Louisiana professionals and their insurers routinely turn to Allen & Gooch. They can depend on our professional liability team for counsel on avoiding possible ethical infractions, for an aggressive defense against claims of malpractice, liability, and other issues, and for guidance on the advisability of settlement. Our goal is not simply to safeguard the financial health of professionals, but protect what they have achieved and preserve their standing in their communities.
