Professional Liability ID work advice

Postby Anonymous User » Sun Oct 16, 2016 9:52 pm

I recently got an offer to join a professional liability group. I think the practice involves representing various financial, legal, and healthcare professionals from malpractice claims. I didn't realize this work is actually insurance defense... sorta because fees are paid by insurance carriers covering malpractice policies.

I know next to nothing about the actual practice as a first year junior. Is this one of those soul-crushing low-end litigation jobs in the ranks of debt collection and personal injury? Or is this a great place to learn litigation involving fairly sophisticated and interesting cases?

Depends on the firm, really. However it is a great way to learn litigation.

It's insurance defense, and that comes with lower fees and salaries. But it is not debt collection or low-level personal injury. These are professionals who pay good money for their policies and expect quality representation. You won't make big law money but it isn't mindless low level drudgery.
