Our Lawyers for the Profession® group is devoted to representing and advising lawyers and law firms on all aspects of the "law governing lawyers." We focus on four broad areas: legal malpractice defense; ethics and professional responsibility representation and counseling; law firm organization and structure; and risk management services. We have 11 states well-covered and try lawyers' cases nationally wherever needed. Our lawyers anticipate and preempt professional problems, but when disputes occur we offer sound solutions or, where necessary, effective advocacy.
Our leading position as lawyers for the profession is further evidenced in the published works of our team, the professional appointments and bar association positions we hold, the frequency with which members of our group are invited to serve as expert witnesses, and the large number of lectures and presentations we are invited to give annually. In fact, we have chaired virtually every bar-related organization and committee concerned with legal ethics and professional responsibility and one of our partners served as President of the Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL), a nationally prominent bar group.
Hinshaw has one of the largest and most respected professional liability practices in the United States, with more than 125 attorneys who have extensive experience in the defense of diverse professional liability claims. We offer lawyers a comprehensive suite of risk management services for law firms and lawyers to help manage the complexities of practicing law.
Lawyering Law is Hinshaw's risk management service for lawyers and law firms of fewer than 50 lawyers who are insureds of partner professional liability insurers. Lawyering Law provides access to on-demand CLE programs, an e-library of proprietary risk management advice, and real-time risk management counselling. Hinshaw helps lawyers minimize–if not eliminate–the risks of potential claims by clients and non-clients, disciplinary proceedings, and even criminal prosecution.
