Professional Liability/Claim Prevention

From professional negligence disputes to breach of fiduciary duty claims and disagreements over payment, for more than 25 years, Bassford Remele has routinely represented professionals in liability litigation. For contractors, engineers, architects, accountants, brokers, agents, company directors and officers, and more, our team brings a tremendous amount of experience.

Past successes range from the defense of an insurance agency in a case involving a language barrier between a homeowner and the agent to engineers faulted for design. In every case, our Bassford Remele lawyers take the time to listen to what clients want to ensure they are part of the process. Our team then puts their experience and well-established reputation with judges and opposing counsel to work to get results.
