Bishop | Barry has developed a reputation for excellence in the defense of lawyers in legal malpractice actions and in their role as directors or officers of corporations.

Each case against a legal professional is unique, and the defense is individually tailored to the concerns of that professional in preserving his or her reputation and time while aggressively seeking a dismissal or preparing for trial. We treat the client as our partner in developing strategies since he or she generally has expertise in the subject matter out of which the professional malpractice claim has arisen.

We have defended cases of alleged malpractice and breach of fiduciary duty in the context of virtually every field of practice, from probate to patents, family law to bankruptcy, labor and employment law, civil rights, landlord-tenant and personal injury, mergers and acquisitions and business law.

In addition to defense of professionals who are being sued, we provide updates to our clients and carriers on new issues, have given seminars to groups of carrier personnel, and provide education to our clients to assist them in avoiding future claims.
