While it may have looked different this year, several members of SPvG’s Professional Liability Team attended DRI’s annual Professional Liability Seminar. The seminar was held virtually on December 2, 2020. Members learned about current trends in professional liability, tips and tricks from claims professionals, and ethical issues arising in the virtual world.
Many cases from 2020 revisited issues on causation, comparative fault, and the discovery rule. The practice tip that stood out among all the cases – the need not only for a formal engagement letter, but a formal disengagement letter. We can help you draft your engagement letters and disengagement letters.
It is expected the number of professional liability claims will rise in 2021 as a direct result of the pandemic. We can help you navigate these unchartered times.
