Professional & Management Liability
We recognize that every claim or lawsuit involving a business executive or professional is a matter of extreme importance and sensitivity. The need for experienced counsel to defend these actions has consequently become essential.
Tressler lawyers have acted as counselors and trial advocates for a wide range of professionals, including doctors, lawyers, accountants, investment bankers, insurance brokers and other professionals in both the health care and financial services industries. We understand the demands made on both the substantive and service aspects of a professional's daily life. We recognize that professionals are engaged in rendering professional services while also often being engaged at high levels in their own businesses. Tressler lawyers know that a professional's reputation and community standing must be protected in both the boardroom and the courtroom. From drafting documents and pleadings to trial advocacy, we put our client's interests at the heart of our representation.
With respect to directors and officers, our team has represented them in a range of actions challenging business decisions.

We have represented directors and officers in a variety of industries, including healthcare, financial services, not-for-profit institutions and government organizations.
