Medical Malpractice Defense

In today’s climate, any healthcare provider can face a malpractice lawsuit. Many times, malpractice lawsuits are filed when the underlying care was within accepted standards of practice. We have experience successfully defending doctors, nurses, physician assistants, hospitals, nursing homes, and other healthcare professionals and entities. We understand how these lawsuits affect healthcare professionals and we work closely with our clients to minimize the impact on them both personally and professionally. We also frequently represent healthcare clients in administrative, licensing, and privileging matters, such as before the Colorado Medical Board.

Defense of Other Licensed Professionals

In addition to work with healthcare providers, we also have extensive experience defending and advising other licensed professionals, including accountants, architects, attorneys, and engineers in claims, lawsuits, and administrative and licensing matters.

Premises Liability, Employment, and General Liability Defense

We represent several Colorado and national companies and institutions in personal injury, employment, and premises liability cases. We provide our clients thorough early assessments at early stages of the process. This approach allows clients and carriers to make prompt decisions about how to approach the case in the most cost-effective manner. In the early assessment, we also provide a roadmap for clients, highlighting decision-making points that give the process some predictability and eases the burdens that accompany litigation.

Commercial and Construction Litigation

Our attorneys have experience in the area of commercial litigation and construction, including having represented national companies in cases involving worksite injury and construction defects. We have handled many cases involving contract disputes, entity litigation, and directors’ and officers’ liability.

Insurance Coverage and Bad Faith

We have authored coverage opinions and advised clients regarding extra-contractual liability issues, including bad faith.
