Professional Liability & Regulation

Don't gamble with your reputation.

Whether you are a physician, a lawyer, an accountant, a psychologist, or any other type of professional, your reputation is important. In fact, your reputation is key to your financial success and may very well be your most valuable asset.  A lawsuit or a claim against you, your practice, or your firm, therefore presents a variety of concerns that range from purely financial factors to more subjective considerations.

Your professional reputation is important... so is ours.

The attorneys at Downs Rachlin know these concerns. We have decades of experience defending accountants, lawyers, physicians, psychologists, and professionals in virtually all fields. Our attorneys have litigated some of the most high profile and complex professional liability matters in Vermont and New England.  At the same time, we know that a one-size-fits-all approach is not the right approach in these cases.  While some matters demand an aggressive, full-blooded defense, other matters require discrete and quick resolution. This is where our reputation comes into play. Downs Rachlin is known for creative, flexible and effective resolution of professional liability matters – both big and small. We listen to all of your concerns and then work with you to develop an effective strategy to achieve your goals.

Although lawsuits are never pleasant, the attorneys at Downs Rachlin are committed to working with you to resolve professional liability claims so that you can get back to what you do best – providing the high-quality professional services upon which your reputation is built.  After all, our good reputation depends on successfully defending yours.

When it comes to professional liability, our ultimate goal is maintaining our client's reputation.

We plan to keep it that way.
