Swartz Campbell is pleased to announce that The Legal Intelligencer, the nation’s oldest daily law journal published in the United States, has selected the firm as the 2020 “Professional Liability Department of the Year.” This award is highly sought after by law firms in Pennsylvania who represent attorneys and other professionals facing malpractice claims. It is the second time the firm has been so recognized.

Said Department Chair Jeffrey McCarron, “The goal of our Professional Liability Group is to provide the highest levels of representation to the professionals who rely upon us to protect their professional reputations. Everything is at stake in these cases. Our work ethic and subject matter expertise have allowed us to achieve success at all levels, ending cases before suit, at the preliminary objection stage, on dispositive motion, at trial, and on appeal. We are really proud of this and determined to build on it to continue to be the ‘first call’ professionals make when they face these situations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and even nationally.”

The firm’s Professional Liability Department consists of 6 lawyers. Clients include attorneys, architects and engineers, insurance agents, brokers, securities dealers, medical and non-medical personnel and corporate directors and officers and other professionals arising out of professional practice. Many of the matters involve professional malpractice which accuses the professional of deviating from the standard of care. Other matters include claims for breach of contract, defamation, commercial torts, intentional torts such as fraud, conspiracy and illegal acts, and claims based on regulations of professional conduct.

Notable clients have recently included former New Jersey Governor, Chris Christie and Philadelphia personal injury firm, Lundy Law.

In addition to this award, the firm has been repeatedly recognized by Us News & World Report’s Best Law Firms as a Tier 1 (highest) law firm for Defense Legal Malpractice Law in the Philadelphia area. Click here for more information on the award.
