Lagasse Branch Bell + Kinkead’s professional liability group specializes in providing advice, counseling, and litigation defense to director and officer (D&O) level clients. As is our practice with the representation of all professionals, our service begins with properly advising our D&O clients as to the legal and professional requirements/standards impacting their day to day business. In the unfortunate event of litigation, our attorneys have renowned experience litigating in both state and federal courts and against a multitude of potential claims, including negligence claims and derivative suits. Our clients face many perils operating their businesses, and special concerns arise when there is a risk of personal, individual exposure. Our team responds to claims quickly and aggressively with the goal of putting our clients at ease and optimizing results.
In the fortunate event our clients benefit from applicable insurance, we are approved counsel on numerous D&O insurance carrier panels and work closely with carriers to keep them advised on all matters relating to the client’s defense.
