Professional Liability Defense – Insurance Agents & Brokers

When insurance agents and brokers are at risk for lawsuits arising from the performance of their professional duties, the attorneys at Kaufman Dolowich are well-equipped to handle the matter. Our lawyers have a full understanding of the complex issues associated with these types of claims and work closely with our clients to develop strategies to resolve the matter as quickly and favorably as possible. We also appreciate the sensitive nature of professional liability claims and are committed to taking the appropriate steps to protect our clients’ careers and reputations at every stage of the process. 

Kaufman Dolowich has wide-ranging experience representing agents and brokers throughout the insurance industry in matters alleging errors and omissions, negligence, fraud, inter-brokerage disputes and state regulatory proceedings. We also provide extensive risk-management counseling and training to clients to prevent and avoid claims.

When policyholders discover that they don’t have the proper insurance, they are often quick to blame insurance agents and brokers for their lack of coverage. Our practice members are intimately familiar with these types of situations and defend agents and brokers in claims asserting that they made errors and omissions in the procurement of policies across all lines of insurance, including:

  • Homeowners’ insurance
  • General liability insurance
  • Professional liability insurance
  • Life insurance
  • Health insurance
  • Disability insurance

At Kaufman Dolowich, we understand the insurance industry, and the Insurance Coverage and Litigation Practice is one of our firm’s hallmarks.  When professional malpractice allegations surface, our lawyers provide brokers and agents with the counsel and assistance they need to properly defend against these claims.  Our lawyers undertake a complete analysis of the claim and work closely with our clients to build a strong and effective plan of defense.  While in most cases our objective is to reach a fair and amicable resolution before the matter proceeds to trial, our lawyers are advanced litigators with the skills and resources necessary to successfully defend claims against brokers and dealers at all levels of the state and federal court systems.
