James Hoey, President of Clausen Miller
Clausen Miller has an international reputation for excellence in defending all types of professional liability matters. Clausen Miller’s professional liability defense attorneys have over fifty years of experience defending professionals in a wide range of industries and professions. We have represented accountants, architects, engineers, investment advisors, attorneys, securities dealers, insurance agents and brokers, real estate agents, and real estate brokers and inspectors.
Through our vast experience in the defense of a variety of different professions, we have developed an understanding of many diverse industries. This experience enables us to specialize our defense based on the industry’s specific standard of care, as well as the specific needs of the client. Clausen Miller’s professional liability defense attorneys recognize that a client’s name and reputation may be at stake, and we are therefore committed to a litigation strategy that both protects and aggressively defends each professional.
Our expertise in the defense of professionals in the field of finance oftentimes arises in the context of claims involving erroneous opinions and fraudulent nondisclosure. We defend architects and engineers against claims of faulty design or engineering in all types of construction and development projects, including claims involving subtle forms of economic loss. Clausen Miller’s attorneys represent insurance agents and brokers when insureds present claims such as the negligent procurement of insurance. We also defend residential and commercial brokers against claims based in contract, fiduciary duty, negligence and fraud.
Clausen Miller’s professional liability defense attorneys provide cost-effective, innovative, and successful representation of professionals in jurisdictions throughout the United States. Although Clausen Miller’s attorneys recognize that not all litigation should proceed to trial, our attorneys are skilled trial advocates who try cases with success, skill, and positive results.
