The Healthcare Litigation Group at Shaub, Ahmuty, Citrin & Spratt, LLP is a leading and respected professional liability defense group led by Partners Henry Z. Shaub, Marc J. Citrin and William G. Spratt. The team is highly knowledgeable and experienced in the complex and emotional medical malpractice arena.
Practicing exclusively in this field, our team of medical malpractice attorneys is able to communicate effectively with physicians and healthcare providers in their own language. As counsel to several of the most prominent healthcare institutions in the country, we are able to leverage our access to a network of preeminent medical experts at each stage of the litigation process in order to best defend our clients.
Our attorneys understand the value of resolving cases by early settlement or ADR proceedings, when this course is advisable and in the client's best interests. Alternatively, our willingness to proceed to trial when necessary and our impeccable trial record instills in our clients confidence in our ability to successfully represent them. Clients retain us to reserve losses of cases previously lost, to help preserve a win or to monitor work for insurance companies from a legal issues standpoint.
On average, we try in excess of 25 medical malpractice cases to verdict each year, winning favorable verdicts in the vast majority of our cases. These include cases in which the plaintiffs have rejected substantial settlement offers. Additionally, we work with clients to ensure their day-to-day liability exposure is minimized and provide risk management counseling and strategies for avoiding legal action.
