Practice/Industry Group Overview
The growth, tenacity and creativity of the plaintiffs' bar has ushered in a new wave of matters sounding in professional liability. To meet the needs of our clients, Marshall Dennehey Warner Coleman & Goggin has responded with a team of lawyers devoted exclusively to defending professionals. Our professional liability practice is broad-based and includes many senior attorneys who have significant experience in the defense of large exposure, politically-sensitive and complex cases. An analysis committee examines each case to ensure its proper assignment within our group.
Our Professional Liability Practice Group services a broad client base, including, but not limited to:
- Debt collectors
- Financial planners
- Financial professionals
- Financial services outsourcing solution providers
- Information technology advisors
- Insurance brokers/agents
- Investment advisors
- Investment professionals
- Mortgage brokers
- Mutual fund and hedge fund administrators
- Private trust companies
- Real estate agents and brokers

We also defend fiduciary liability matters, corporate directors and officers, and ERISA claims. In addition to professional liability matters before state and federal courts, we defend financial planners, investment professionals, and brokers and broker-dealers before self-regulatory organizations (SROs). We also handle securities arbitration claims before FINRA, AAA and other SROs. In addition, the group litigates commercial matters including employment disputes, trade secrets, bank litigation, and surety, fidelity and performance bonds.
Our offices are centrally linked by state-of-the-art computer networking. Our clients realize added value from our extensive network of offices: travel time is sharply reduced and the attorneys working out of these offices and living in these respective areas are intimately familiar with local practice and enjoy a good rapport with the judges before whom they frequently appear.
Recognizing the need for a cost-effective approach to the defense of professionals, our firm is dedicated to providing our clients with quality, timely and economical service. We are on the cutting edge in developing innovative and alternative billing practices.
The Professional Liability Practice Group serves clients in Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, Ft. Lauderdale and communities throughout Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Ohio, Florida and New York.
We would welcome the opportunity to work with you in handling your professional liability litigation. We are also available to conduct presentations or training seminars at your location, or at one of our eighteen offices.
