PROFESSIONAL LIABILITY DEFENSE


With 12 attorneys focused on the defense of lawyers, accountants, insurance brokers and other professionals, KZ has one of the leading Professional Liability Defense practices in South Florida. Our client driven-outcome oriented approach to litigation enables us to consistently deliver superior results with maximum efficiency. We are in court essentially every day of the week somewhere in the tri-county area and travel throughout the state of Florida on a regular basis in the vigorous defense of our clients.

Our attorneys are veterans of more than 100 trials and arbitrations and bring this experience to bear on behalf of our clients every single day. We are particularly adept in the defense of attorneys (including violations of the securities and anti-trust laws and RICO violations), accountants (including failures to detect embezzlements; tax advice; and violations of the federal and state securities laws), trustees and fiduciaries (with particular emphasis on personal representatives’ and trustees’ liability in the exercise of their fiduciary duties and under the Prudent Investor Rule), insurance agents and brokers (including placements with insolvent insurers; failure to obtain adequate coverages or limits and fiduciary duties of reinsurance intermediaries), and actuaries (including deepening insolvency cases based on failures to set adequate reserves). We also represent our clients in regulatory and disciplinary matters and have a track record of success in those areas as well.

Today’s treacherous business and regulatory environment demands a defense from vigorous and experienced counsel with specialized knowledge and a documented record of success. We are proud to offer this at KZ in one of our six core practice areas.
