For many years, Sheehan Phinney has defended law firms, physician groups, medical practices, hospitals, insurance agencies, real estate agencies, accounting firms, and other organizations faced with professional liability issues.

We regularly counsel business professionals and management teams about liability risks and potential exposures within their industries, and we recognize that when faced with a professional liability claim, the cost of litigation is not just financial, but reputational.  Accordingly, we approach all professional liability litigation matters sensitively, with an eye not just on pursuing a successful legal outcome, but in protecting our clients’ reputation with consumers, the marketplace, and their communities.  We will work collaboratively with you to assist with public relations, risk assessment, and mainstream and online media monitoring to ensure the accuracy of reported information.  We take pride in the fact that the Plaintiffs’ Bar knows our firm and our practice group, and respects our defense work in this area – which often enables us to achieve early, cost-effective, and favorable resolution of these matters for our clients.
