Architects and Engineers



Our experienced attorneys are often retained by insurance companies to represent the interests of architects and engineers. Unlike other areas of professional liability, allegations of negligent design/defect can result in serious physical injury and often death. Accusations of wrongful death or of being responsible for a serious physical injury can be emotionally challenging for an architect or engineer. Sandberg Phoenix attorneys take special care to be sensitive to the emotional impact of such claims on our professional clients as we develop and implement the best possible defenses.

Defending professional liability claims against architects and engineers require a high level technical sophistication. Our team of professional liability attorneys has the experience to navigate the technical aspects of such claims at all stages of the construction process. We use our technical knowledge and our litigation skills to effectively articulate otherwise complex concepts which enhance our ability to successfully defend clients. Our experience allows us to discover and identify those facts necessary to take advantage of favorable case law. Whether the case involves a wrongful death or modest property damage, our team has the ability to provide efficient and effective defenses to architects and engineers.

Sandberg Phoenix attorneys have a well-earned reputation for trying lawsuits. Our attorneys also have the ability to successfully represent professional liability clients on appeal when necessary. But, we also understand the costs associated with litigation so we make early assessments to identify those cases that are appropriate for early resolution.

Our attorneys always consider the potential impact on the reputation of our clients when providing counselling or developing defense strategies. As licensed professionals ourselves, we know what it takes to earn an outstanding professional reputation. We take pride in our professional reputation and work hard to protect the well-earned reputations of our architect and engineer clients.
