Practice Areas

Our attention is foremost on healthcare and professional liability defense. We have represented physicians, hospitals and other healthcare providers in hundreds of trials and other litigated cases. Over the years we have helped shape much of Oregon law relating to hospital and medical defense. Our litigation experience extends to civil rights and complex litigation, premises liability, employment matters, and unfair trade claims.

We also represent hospitals and providers in a wide array of administrative, medical and nursing board, agency, and regulatory matters. We regularly consult on issues involving EMTALA, HIPAA, and other issues related to federal standards and compliance.

We frequently receive appellate referrals from clients and other lawyers who seek our appellate expertise. Professional liability insurers retain us to help other lawyers untangle complicated legal and procedural issues at trial and on appeal. Our professional liability work includes defending lawyers in claims brought against them
