Defending Your Reputation, Representing Your Best Interests

A lawsuit threatens your reputation. Don’t wait until a lawsuit is filed to protect yourself.  

Protecting against ethical breaches and suits begins before a lawsuit is filed. LivingstonBarger brings a results-driven approach to professional liability defense, leading you through proactively limiting liability. When a suit has been filed, we will defend your reputation and financial standing to the very best of our capacity.

We will guide your staff through professional liability challenges and detail the actions needed to avoid breaching ethical standards. In addition, we can provide proactive consulting to assist with detecting issues before they arise.

When standards are allegedly breached, our team will create a plan to minimize the impact of any alleged breach. LivingstonBarger understands the regulatory framework governing the professionals we represent, and we will utilize this expertise when representing you.
