Overview

The defense of non-medical professionals covers a multitude of professions and disciplines.

Our firm has a strong concentration in the areas of Legal Professional Liability, Financial Services Professional Liability, Architects & Engineers/Construction Liability and Miscellaneous Professional Liability. Our depth in these areas accounts for each having a separate subgroup within the umbrella of Professional Liability.

Legal Professional Liability

Financial Services Professional Liability

Architects and Engineers / Construction Liability

Miscellaneous Professional Liability

The various professional disciplines represented by our firm not only face claims asserting negligent performance (i.e. malpractice), but also issues of alleged violation of regulatory standards established for many professions, regulated and enforced by various administrative bodies. Thus, the Practice Group members have extensive experience in counseling and representing various professionals faced with regulatory and disciplinary complaints.

Our group is comprised of attorneys spread out among our multiple offices throughout Ohio, Indiana and Kentucky.

Our Services and Philosophy of Case Handling

Our philosophy of practice in Professional Liability is no different than the philosophy we strive for in all of our practice groups. In collaboration with the client, we want to immediately assess the different factors that comprise the real 'problem' for the client, and then, after explaining the different scenarios and potential avenues that accompany the issue, we want to decide on the best way to finalize the matter, in as efficient manner as possible. In a word, we strive to be solvers of problems.

No doubt, each case will differ based on the facts and the issues presented, but our philosophy is the same no matter what type of issue with which we are presented: We strive to identify the real problem confronting our client, and then to solve it. We know from long experience that this philosophy distinguishes us from so many other law firms, because, all too often, lawyers spin their wheels 'solving' problems that only create larger ones. Our clients can and do expect a different approach from Reminger.

Reminger is proud to announce that U.S. News & World Report and Best Lawyers® awarded the firm with a number of national and regional rankings. In addition, our Professional Malpractice Law-Defendants Practice was ranked as Metropolitan Cleveland Tier 1 for 2020.

Testimonials

"Reminger is one of my go-to firms. By the way, I am a hard sell."
-Linda, Professional Liability Senior Claims Examiner

"I like the way Reminger analyzes a claim and gives the ‘bad news’ upfront. I also like the timely reporting and keeping the insured in the communication loop. Finally, your bills are reasonable and always in line with our expectations."
-Barbara, Claim Supervisor

"If we would use a scale from 1-10 to measure the quality of performance, I would give the Reminger lawyers an 11. Andy Dorman and his team know their stuff and get things done.” 
-Teresa, AVP
